This week I was given a Sunshine Award by Virginia of Celtic House. Virginia started the 'Rocking My World Friday' phenomenon on her fun and funky blog. I was very quick to jump on her bandwagon and play along. Thank you Virginia for giving me this lovely award and, for making me think about the many reasons I have to be cheerful!
The deal is, the recipients of this award pass it on to others and these are the people I'd like to pass it on to:-

Chriss Rollins at the Artist Trading Club - who tirelessly organises 'Swap Til You Drop' - an ATC exchange and is so very welcoming and encouraging. Visit her at

Jo at Fiddlesnips - an old friend, once lost and now found who's lovely artwork I've always admired and who's words and swaps I cherish. Jo can be found at

Yvonne at ARTic Blonde Creations - a new made friend who's unique style and personality have been an inspiration almost every day since we 'met' - check her out at

Penny at The Hen House - who's beautiful blog makes me laugh and cry in equal measure. She writes about her life in a way that makes me feel like I'm sharing it with her - stop by and pay her a visit, if you haven't already at

Jan at Jans Arty ATC Journey - a fellow ATC addict and one of the first people I ever swapped with in Blogland. Her blog is packed full with wonderful delights and her ATCs are divine. Drop by and have a browse at
