An award and a card...

Wow, I have received an award... TADA!!!!

I'd like to thank, the director,the producer, the cast, the crew... lol. No, seriously, I'd like to thank my lovely friend Helen for giving me this award. Helen's blog is lovely (actually she has two one at Bee's Knees and another at Carry On Crafting. Go and show her some love! The idea of the Liebster Blog Award is to spread the love from one small blog (under 200 followers) to other small blogs. This helps to spread knowledge and readership Liebster" in German means "dearest", so as part of the Liebster award tradition, I am going to pass this award to 5 blogs that I value, and that have both inspired and motivated me. To accept the award, you must: 1) Link back to the person who gave it and thank them for thinking of you. 2) Post the award to your blog. 3) Give the award to 5 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) that you appreciate and value. 4) Leave a comment on the blogs of the five people you have chosen to let them know. So these are the 5 I would like to pass the award to:- Firstly to Ali. Ali is fab, she is the person solely responsible for me blogging on a regular basis. We met (for the first time, although had "chatted" online) at the SECC in March last year and she nagged me cos she'd been checking my blog and it wasn't updated very regularly. Now even if you want to just pop over to her blog and give her a hard time for that.... No, her blog is fab and she is the master of CAS and WoW, I bow to her expertise. Secondly to Katrina. Now I only discovered Katrina's blog yesterday although we have been friends on Facebook for ages! We're both members of the Sugar Nellie Facebook group so you will see a lot of SN images on her blog but they're all fab. Go and check her out. Next to Abi. Abi is my "boss" over at Sweet Stampin'! Her cards are fab and she is also, like me, signed up to Use it Up in 2012. She was very good in the run up to Christmas with her nagging texts to me to get some cards made... Do you sense a pattern emerging here, I need a lot of nagging to do things ;) Now to Sarah who is also on the DT at Sweet Stampin'. The images on her recent cards have made me laugh (go and see what I mean) and she has also signed up to UiU in 2012 too. Sarah, has, very bravely put photos of her stash on her blog. Braver than I am certainly. I'd be too terrified to take photos. Lastly to Lorraine who tries to nag (sorry, inspire) me on a daily basis. Her favourite Stampin' Up stamp set is French Foliage so you might just see a few cards which use that as a base on her blog ;) Thank you to you all ladies, for inspiring me and helping me, perhaps more than you will ever know. Now to a card. This was the second of the cards I made for the Sweet Stampin Challenge this week but Pippi was my favourite so I'm afraid Pillow Talk lost out. I like it more than I did the other day although I'm still not sure about it. Image - Pillow Talk coloured with Promarkers, Funky Kits Cardstock and paper from stash Embellishments - Gems, Stampin Up Tools - Nestie Labels and Big Shot Hugs.Susan xxx
