Catch Up Time!!!

Boy do I seem to be sooo far behind at the moment!! I'm not quite sure why! I am battling a cold but that's all...ah well, time to play CATCH UP!

Firstly I have to thank two lovely ladies for honouring me with Blog Awards recently - This one I received form the lovely Carolann over at Black Cat's Miaow. Not only do I consider visiting her blog an honour but she has also become a personal friend with whom time spent stamping usually means time spent laughing! It's meant to be passed on to people who have made a difference to you by their visits to your blog.

This second award was from the lovely Emily over at Emily's Expressions. The rules for this award are...
*comment on this blog
*cut and paste the award logo and use it on your own blog
*nominate 5 to 10 blogs you feel show great attitude and gratitude
*link to your nominees within your blog post
*comment on their blogs to let them know they received the award
*link back to the person who gave you the award to show your appreciation

I am more than happy to pass these awards on to these fabulous Aussie bloggers, in no particular order, because their visits to my blog are like having a friend pop in for a cuppa!

Kellie Winnell
, Kristy Young , Cheryl Joshua , Leigh Stoodley, Philippa Petty , Leonie Hegarty, Ramona Michaluk , Kristie Morrison , Debbie Minter , Jean McKenzie, Bec (Bizzy Becs) , Sue (Tillymint), Marcia P, Karen Thomas , Robyn (Rainbows by Robyn), Mandy Schiller , Liam Pucher

I figured I had 2 awards to pass on so I could pick some extras - LOL - and restricted myself to Aussie blogs to keep the list in check...

I have also been tagged by Marcia P over at The Stamp Spot - will have to do that one later - but I WILL do it - LOL

Recipe Swap Open!!

One other thing I'm up to - I have joined a 6x6 recipe card swap - would you like to play along too? Your pages can be very simple as long as you follow a few simple guidelines....Here is the information you'll need to join in - read the rules and you have until June 10th to sign up. Kristine Breach has done a fabulous example card here , I am working on mine now - LOL, and there are more examples here too. Anyone want to sign up with me???? Can you imagine the fabulous book you'll have by the end, what a great gift for yourself or someone special?????? I think there are still some spots available!

WOOOHOOO!!! I'm so thrilled that you signed up :) YAY... lol, I'm so happy! My sister signed up too, and I wonder who else will join? I haven't had any takers on my blog, unless they just haven't told me, except for you! Lisa's so funny--she said she'd join if she actually cooked! LOL. Hilarious that so many women I know don't cook?!! Anyway, looking forward to it.
