Liebster Award

I was nominated for the Liebster Award today, how exciting!

Liebster means "favourite" in German, and the award is given by peers to fellow bloggers who have been able to inspire despite their small following.  I was nominated for the award by Shirley Rose, who makes lovely cards of her own.  Thank you Shirley!

Once accepted, an award recipient must "pay it forward" by completing the following steps:
  1. Post the award to your blog.
  2. Link back to the person's blog who gave it to you and thank them.
  3. Give the award to 5 bloggers with less than 200 followers that you appreciate and value.
  4. Leave a comment on the five blogs you chose to let them know that they have been given the Liebster award.
Here are 5 blogs that I feel deserve to receive the Liebster Award:
  1. Cards by Dorothy - Dorothy's cards are simple and use a lot of embossing which I find very pretty.
  2. Crafty Rika - Erika's cards are playful and fun, but classic at the same time. Her layouts remind me of some of the ones I have used only a lot less messy!
  3. Desert Diva - Hannelie is a digital stamper who combines clean lines with lovely colour combinations.  She makes me want to try some digi stamps even though I find them intimidating!
  4. Scrappin Fab Pam - Pam's cards are deceptively simple.  I can tell there are a lot of steps in putting her cards together, which is totally worth it because they are beautiful!
  5. Scrapping Spot - Lisa uses lots of graphic prints in an elegant way, and uses colour in a way that makes me question why I'm not doing it that way too!
Thanks again to Shirley for nominating me, and for the people that have already visited because of it!  What a fun experience to have someone recognize the work that you've done and are proud of, and then you get to pass the experience on to 5 more people!  It sounds cheesy but this really made my day!!

Cathy, I am honored that you feel that I deserve to have the Liebster Award again. Your comment about my cards warmed my heart. I have been crafting for a very long time, but have never felt more rewarded than when I started posting them and then became a Design Team member for Made Especially for you. Thank you so much for your kind words.

Thank you for the recognition. I appreciate it very much. I have been stamping for a while, but just started this blog.
I have a question for you - could I ask you to send an e-mail -
