Alpacas, awards, and gifts Oh My!!

Today, I am working on some more cards to add to my mom's collection to take with me this weekend. My DS and I will be going up to the farm. Hopefully, we will get to see Sarena (see picture) give birth Saturday morning. She was due last Sunday, so I am praying she has her cria (hopefully a little girl, too) while we are there. Cody wants to stay with Nan and Pap a while to help out just in case he is needed *wink* . The lucky little stinker is off school after Friday.


In the meantime, Alison was so kind to award me with the Kreative Award from her blog. Thanks, Alison!! *blushing* I appreciate your award, but I don't think my work is all that different from many of my totally creative friends. So the next thing is that I am to pass along this award to 3 of my creative blogging sisters. I choose . . .
  • Melanie a very talented illustrator and senior design team member for GinaK Designs. I love her inspirational projects and great sense of humor that shows through in her blog posts, and WISH I had the money to buy ALL of her stamp sets!! :D

  • Chris who is my SBS4 sister, a very good friend, and a new design team member for Simon Says Stamp

  • Lee who is a very good friend and such an inspiration to me as well. She DOES have all of Melanie's stamp sets!! :D LOL

These ladies in turn are to pass it along to their friends as well.


Last but not least . . . I have accepted a PIF (pay-it-forward) package from a new bloggin' friend, Jennifer G from the JLO Design Team, and I want to pass on some goodies to the next 3 bloggers that post here. So . . . here is what is up for grabs . . .

I will send packages (like the picture above but the spools of ribbon and fiber colors may vary) to the next 3 readers to comment here, but you have to also PIF to 3 of your readers as well. If you don't have a blog you can still play along, but I am trusting you to PIF to 3 friends/family/coworkers.

The packages will include Daisy Hill DP (whimsical dp with flowers, butterflies and stars), red and gold mulberry paper, fibers, 2 spools of ribbon, and stamped images of -- Hanna But I Need It set, Fruity Fun House Mouse, Santa Claus image (ever sought after last year), Lizzie Ann fairy, and Wheelbarrow Ride Gruffies.

EDITED 06/05/2008: Please, if you are interested in the Pay It Forward you need to say that you will PIF in the comments. I am waiting to hear back from two of the girls, and then I will open it up to the next two in line. Thanks! Leave your email or a way to contact you through your blog. (In hind-sight, I should have made it a separate post . . . sorry about that).

Just missed, but love the alpacas. My parents farm sheep and I love nothing better than walking through the paddocks amongst them. Have fun at the farm!

Kristine said...

Hi Kelly,
I do want to PIF! Thanks!

I ran across your blog at SCS. I love the penguin in the post before this one! So cute.. I hope you get to see the alpaca give birth too! How cool would that be! I'm new to stamping and stuff...relatively anyway. So I spend time poking around at others work for ideas and inspiration. I have a blog, but it's not stamping related really...although I may start to incorporate it some? Who knows.

Kelly S said...

I'm not sure, but that might be a face only a mother could love. LOL But I guess she is kinda cute, in her own way.

Congrats on the award! You definitely deserve it!
