a RAK and some AWARDS


Check out this cute CC Designs Summer Monkey card Christina (Flowers & Ink) Fischer sent me this week! It's so bright & fun and helped renew a fondness for buttons, so I've been trying to use them more! Thank you, Christina - this brightened my day!!


I got this cool award or shall I say Gold Card from 2 great ladies! Mada Ro (Me & My Cards)-I discovered her blog when I was blog hopping one Sat. afternoon and she made a card with Nolan's first monster. She is super sweet.

Then I got it from Monika (M.A.D. Stamper) - she has been my blogging buddy for over a year now and I sure enjoy all her stuff -and the personal emails we have occasionally*wink*

The rules of this award are:
1. Only 5 people allowed.
2. 4 have to be dedicated followers of your blog
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.

It is a way of saying thank you to those who take time out for wonderful comments to boost your day. I am going to pass this award on to:

1. Lee Murphy {My Reality....It's All Good} I love this woman! We are actually chatting on yahoo messenger as I type this post. She is so sweet, an super encourager, thoughtful, I could go on! Oh and she loves Pink & Brown like I do...and BLING!

2. Alexandra {California Stampin'} need I say more? Remember I was born in CA? Alexandra is so sweet, loves to scrapbook, is retired from serving 23 yrs in the Navy and is just a nice lady!

3. Cathy Tidwell {Cat's Creations} Cat is so sweet!! She sprinkles sunshine in all her posts & comments! She is also a fabulous stamper - I am so happy she is Melanie's Guest Designer this month for her most recent release!!

4. Barb Schram {Explore. Dream. Discover} This woman is so sweet, a wonderful stamper a great mom (I'm sure) and so thoughtful. She always spreads sunshine through her comments!

5. New to my blog and lives in Hawaii - Maureen {My C.A.S.E. Studies} this woman's stuff ROCKS! Go check her out, she loves to paper tole, paper-piece, color with Copics and likes Doodlefactory Images like me!

I got this new award from Monika as well - see how sweet she is??

The rules are:

1. You can give it to one or one hundred or any number in between - it's up to you. Make sure you link to their site in your post.

2. Link back to this blogsite (http://www.tammyvitale.com) so Tammy can go visit all these wonderful women. And remember the purpose of the award: to send love and acknowledgement to women who brighten your day, teach you new things and live their lives fully with generosity and joy.

This award goes to my local friend Melanie Muenchinger {Hands, Head & Heart} Who is a beautiful, energetic, sweet, thoughtful woman who is also blessed with talent as a stamper & stamp illustrator. I am so proud of the success she's had since this year designing stamps for Gina K Designs - you've GOT to check out her newly released set Little Tees - it is SO original! I'm looking forward to getting it!
