Sunshine award

A while ago I was very happy to receive an award from someone who I admire as an artist and who’s blog I thoroughly enjoy visiting.  It was an honour to receive and I felt very chuffed. As life has been busy with a new job and lots of other things, I haven’t had an opportunity to acknowledge the award on my blog but I often think if it and of the wonderful blogs I know that should also enjoy being recipients of the wonderful “Sunshine award”. So… finally… here I am… Thank you so much Michelle from Mushroom Tender blog for the award!  

There are some “rules” for receiving the award:

- Thank the person who gave you the award.

10 questions.

My favorite non-alcoholic drink: Coke zero
Facebook or Twitter? Facebbok
My passion: Just 1? Family
Getting or giving presents? Giving
My favorite pattern: repeating spirals
My favorite day of the week: Friday - TGIF

My 10 Favourite Bloggers:
Mushroom tender – not because she gave me one, I love Michelle’s work
Crotchety Comics – Ted’s pages always give me a real belly laugh and I really appreciate his talent and his funny and at times informative comments on my blog.
Images by Cassandra – Cassandras photos are something to be seen to be believed, they are exceptional! Cassandra and I have known each other through Blogging for a while now and it’s lovely to have such connections
JA has also been a long term blogging friend and is always so encouraging and supportive.
From Jens pen – Jens work is so lovely and I love to see and read of her accomplishments as it makes me feel like maybe one day I will be there myself. I love Jens style.
ElizabethRoseStantons / Penspaper studio – Elizabeth’s work is brilliant, so technically and aesthetically perfect and clever and witty as well
Tea Time Beth Anne’s work is so lovely and soft and gentle, I enjoy visiting her sweet characters
Kind Dog Jane has a fantastic Facebook page which is where I first found her work, she has gorgeous characters and a lovely style. I think I was first drawn to her work as I see a bit of similarity now and then in some of the way we work maybe that’s why her art appeals so much.
Stacey Curtis – Stacey is amazingly talented and I love to drop by and see what he has whipped up lately.
Melissa T Liban Missy is so generous with the things she learns on her illustration journey and her art is fun too.

Wow mammoth post here I know but I want everyone to know why I think the above blogs deserve an award and there others I would have put on the list as well but its sometimes imortant to have limits - or i would be here all day..

Thanks again Michelle!
