I'm a Passionista :), Awards and a Card

Well hello fellow bloggers - I hope you are having a good week.

I have discovered this evening that I was made one of this week's Top 5 Passionistas over on Passion for Promarkers with the card in my post below - woohoohoo!!! What a surprise!

I have also been very lucky to have been awarded 2 awards recently - and I do apologise to Katina and Monica for taking so long to blog about them. Thank you very much to you both, and thank you for the lovely comments you always leave me.

One of the things I must do to accept these awards is to share 7 random facts about myself - well here goes:

1. I have been white water rafting twice, and it was fantastic!
2. I once completed an army assault course for charity, but I couldn't get over the 12 ft wall LOL!
3. The last two facts make me sound really sporty and outgoing but I am not in the least sporty, and I am really quite shy!
4. Something that I really really want to do is to see whales in the wild.
5. Richard and I were very lucky to win a major prize on the National Lottery here in the UK - we had 5 numbers plus the bonus ball, and we won over £23,000 - sadly it's all spent!
6. One of the things we spent the money on was a skiing holiday in Whistler, Canada - wow!
7. Richard thought it would be a good idea for me to have some skiing lessons at a dry ski slope in this country before we went to Canada - and I broke my hand on the first lesson, and was therefore not able to ski on holiday!!! ROFL! We still had a wonderful holiday though!

Another thing I am supposed to do is to pass the awards on to 7 other bloggers I have recently found - now I am really struggling with this one because there are so many fabulous bloggers out there, but I will work on it I promise!

Now onto my card - one of Andrew's friends had his birthday today, and this is the card I made him. He is the drummer in the school band, so I decided to use the digi image Jerry Kisses Drummer from Pollycrafts. I've coloured him with Promarkers. I downloaded the music background from the internet - I believe it is supposed to be drum music (but I don't know for sure LOL!).

I followed this week's sketch at The Sweet Stop, and I also want to enter it in the following challenge:

Creative Card Crew - For a child

Sorry for this long post - hope I haven't bored you to tears LOL!

Love, Andrea xx

Such a cool dude card, that! Love the image and the matching DP. The carelessly tied blue cord ties everything in so beautifully.

I loved reading all that about you... made me laugh for sure. I think you may want to consider buying lottery tickets again... you never know...
