Box Contents Revealed and MORE Blog Awards!

Have you been on pins and needles? Truly I didn't intend to keep you all in suspense, in fact I thought I'd be posting not only what was IN the box, but what I DID with it by now. Guess you're gonna have to wait for the end result until at least next Monday but here's a peek at what I received: an Indie Art Cricut cartridge, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher and Circle Fragments, Prima Clear Paintables, a piece of natural canvas fabric, a black patent belt, and a can of Mountain Dew Code Red Cherry Soda. (Guess they thought we needed a little jolt to get through this challenge. LOL) Custom Crops certainly has a sense of humor. Click HERE to view our instructions.

Now MORE blog awards! Thank you to Sandy who received all three of these awards and was kind enough to pass them along to me. Sandy and I have been friends for awhile and I'm looking forward to actually meeting her in person in Sept. She's such a sweetheart but seems to suffer from a bit of lack of confidence. Please visit her blog and let her know just how wonderful her creations truly are. As Sandy did on her blog (she said because she's older she can break the rules. LOL Well that works for me too!) I'm going to pass these all along in one big award package to some of my sweet friends.
Lillie, a super friend, TCS and TCC DT sister and inspiration who keeps me going with at least one daily phone call.
Margie, another dear friend, TCS and CC DT sister, and fabulous crafter who never fails to make me laugh and brings out my true character (don't tell! LOL)
Sandi, BBTB DT sister and true artist with a lovely gentle soul who's always there to help and inspire. She never ceases to amaze me with her creativity.
Nilda, TCS Team Leader and a super sweet and generous person. I'm so honored to be a part of her team.
Regina, a name EVERYONE knows and loves. BBTB Team leader and creative genius behind The Cutting Cafe. Her inspiration and support means so much! It's such an honor to be a part of BOTH of her teams.
Thanks you all for being such great friends and inspiration. xxD
