Thanks to ShazinOz for this:

I was given this a couple of weeks ago, by the amazingly talented ShazinOz.  As well as making the most gorgeous cards, she does awesome calligraphy, as her blog title, Cards Calligraphy-Shaz in Oz, suggests. We 'met' via WOYWW, and as well as being a very talented person, she is a lovely lady, who lives by some stunning beachside scenery. So, Thank You, Shaz not only for the award, but for all your lovely comments to me, and the inspiration you provide all your visitors with. Now the rules to this are:
Link back to the person giving it to you,
Share it with 7 recently discovered blogs and
Tell 7 random things about yourself.
 So, I have linked back to Shaz, and now for 7 blogs, blimey, this would be hard if it was 70, or 700. I love every blog I find, lol.

So, in no particular order:
Lavinia's Paper Emporium- so many stunning cards on Lavinias blog, and lots of cool pics of her workspace.

Little scrapz of Life -Kazza has so many things to see on her blog- cards, cakes, fabric art- very inspiring

Creating Cards with Andrea. Lots of ideas & Inspiration.

Dotty A Cards & things Love to browse here at all the cards she does

Lucky Stamper - Love all her stuff too!

The Crafty Elf - always has cool/amusing/interesting posts, and makes GORGEOUS cards, especially with House Mouse!

Altered book lover -so much to see on Elizabeths blog, and she has a truly Beautiful puss called Bleubeard-and I have spelt that correctly, lol.

 Thank you to all of these crafters for there inspiration, and for all the info they share.

Now to the 7 random things:

My Beloved Husband & I share the same Birthday- 14th August- just 18 years apart!
I am passionately against animal cruelty & bloodsports.
I am a Heavy Metal fan- my favourites being Iron Maiden, Rammstein,Marilyn Manson,Disturbed and of course Metallica. What you may find odd about this is that I am 56!
My favourite colour is Black- what else?
I am a Pagan.
This is my second marriage,and I am blissfully happy! We will have been married for two years this year, although we have been together for 18.
I loathe: Bad manners,hypocrites,selfish people, raw carrots,fruit,chewing gum & the colour pink,:)
