Spring Thank You!

I have some thank yous that I would like to mention. My first 2 are for awards given to me from other bloggers. Jessica at Craftin' and Stampin' awarded me the  Liebster Blog award. This is an honour I have already received but am more than happy to be acknowledged again by a wonderful blogger. 

The second award is from Georgiana at Carson's Creations who passed on The Versatile Blogger award to me. 
I do want to come back to this one and properly accept and pass it on. I will post this one another day. I do want to thank both Jessica and Georgiana for thinking of me and passing along this honour.

On to my card and two others I would like to thank. I have recently been the recipient of two prizes. Two wonderful stamp sets from Cathie at Cricut Creative Cutter Room . I used the set on this card. Keep in mind I didn't do this properly; I added the stamp after I popdotted , so I didn't get a good stamp. Second I won a great prize from some one who inspires me (and now I have one of her secrets) Rebekah at Tangle's Treasures. I won a $20 gift card for Babapuff, where I got some digital papers that I printed and also used in my card. Thank you both and now for my card.

  4. Awesome job Colin. I love kites. They remind me of spring. Thanks for joining us this week at CTO

  5. Thanks for joining us at Party Time Tuesdays this week!

  6. Congrats on the blog awards Colin! What a fun card! I like how you added the cloud behind the kite then added the string. Very spring-ish! The stamp still came out nice. I love stamping, even if it does drive me crazy doing it. I have a hard time getting it exactly how I want it for some reason. (Perfectionism maybe??) I'll stop on over at those blogs and let them know Colin sent me!

    Have a great evening!
