Liebster Blog award

I got the most amazing honor today!  My very crafty and creative design team member, Karalee, surprised me with the Liebster Blog award!  Thank you SO much Karalee!  Please check out her blog, Karee's Cards and Crafts of Course - she can really whip up the most beautiful cards!

What is the Liebster Award??

A Liebster Blog Award is given to talented bloggers who have less than 200 followers. “Liebster” is a German word that means “Dearest” or “Beloved.” It also means ” Favorite .” So, in a way the award not only recognizes these bloggers as amazingly gifted in their own right but also as your very own personal favorites.

Receiving the award involves a small chain reaction of ensuing kindnesses.
The Rules are:
1) pass the award onto five inspirational bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers.
2) add a comment to their blog so they are aware the award is being given.
3) link back to the special person gifting me with the award.
4) enjoy the Award!

This was unbelievably difficult, but my 5 inspirational bloggers to whom I want to pass this award are:

Cards by Terry - Terry has been my inspiration from the first time I met her because she does such beautiful, detailed, and precise work! (I want to be just like her when it comes to creativity)

Inkin' it Up! with Diane - Diane is our amazing Stampin Up Demonstrator who provides us with a slew of elegant designs each month so that my crafting buddies can get together and craft and chat.

Cards, Cats and Copics - Amanda does awesome work with her Copics and continues to support me even though she is no longer on the design team.

Stampin Hands Have Happy Hearts - Jill is artist and card designer extraordinaire for Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Her work always amazes me.

Margits Schatzruhe - Margit is my inspiration for my German consignment cards.  If only I could order stamps from her too, but international law prevents that!

Please check out their blogs, they are truly wonderful!
