I got the “You Make My Day” award! ... And I got it twice! … Thank you so much Monica and Mike; you’ve made my day so many times with your talent, great work, and inspiring words that I feel extremely happy to know I’ve made your day too! I’m honored, thank you so much! Btw, the award has just been redesigned by Mike, notice the 90% more joy? It looks “Ultra-happy, extra concentrated!”
Now I’ve to pass this award on to 5 blogger/artists that make my day too. Though they are too many to choose just one, here goes my list in alphabetical order:

3ster – She’s got a very unique style; her characters, compositions, and coloring are amazing! I’m sure she’s going to do great as a professional illustrator really soon! Suerte Amiga!

JC – She’s one of the sweetest persons I’ve ever met! And she’s got lots of amazing ideas; you must visit her ATC trading page!

Jessi – This girl’s got talent! I can’t help smiling every time I visit her site; her characters are so cute and funny, and her paintings are great!

Marty – I meet PaintMonster DoodleBlog not long ago though IF, and since that day I’m visiting it constantly…she is so creative and I love her colorful style!

Pati – Sure many of you know her, Godo, and her vector illustrations, but you must see her hand-drawn illustrations, they are so detailed and delicate!

To pass it on, here are the details: 1- Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make your day - 2- acknowledge the post of the award giver - 3- Display the “You Make my Day Award” logo - 4- Tell the award winners that they have won by commenting on their blogs with the news.
Now that Valentine’s Day is approaching my friend Emilia created a new award; the “I Love You This Much Award” to spread some love and remind us that love is all around! … I think it’s an amazing idea! So far I’ve got this lovely award twice, from Emilia herself and from Pupu…thank you so much…and I love you this much too! Now, without further ado, I’m giving this award to all of you who are constantly visiting my blog, encouraging me to improve, and whose talent and great work are always the best kind of inspiration:
Love you all!!!
