photo awards!

i got tagged the other day by my lovely blogging and cardmaking friend regan (aka "stampy mcstamperson"...i think that must be her maiden name!) :)

ok, so it's a photo tag game & you're meant to go to where your digipics are the sixth folder...and post the sixth photo. so here's mine:

it's from a trip to the philadelphia museum of art last's a closeup of one of GIANT buddha heads...since you cannot use flash inside the museum the photo was slightly dark & needed to be lightened a bit in photoshop which gives it that cool purpley-tan cast...i think he looks rather handsome, actually!

and now the awards!

here's a very cool, very pretty prize from my lovely australian blogging friend miss kristie morrison. kristie is an amazing stamper and cardmaker and i assure you that a trip to her blog is well worth your time! she sent me this, which of course i treasure:

next, one of my very first and closest blogging friends, the simply elegant june houck, presented me with this neat award, for which i thank her very much. again, if you are interested in cards, cardmaking, elegance, cleverness or creativity generally, you could do worse than taking a peek at her little corner of the blogosphere:

"This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!"

now for all three of these a person is meant to TAG some other folks...but of course i can never *remember* the rules of anything for long enough to abide by howsabout we just go by the honor system, eh? since i know for a fact that everyone who hangs out in these parts is creative, into proximity and possessed of plenty o'photos, if you'd LIKE to be tagged with any of the above, then by golly you are! (but if you'd like to be excused...consider this your free pass!)

i am off to new york to visit a friend for a couple of days. i had hoped to blog ahead a bit, but somehow that just didn't happen, so i shall return on monday or tuesday with all new...ummmmmm...something! until then,

happy weekend, darlings!
