Accepting the Liebster Blog Award

Hello, friends! I am stopping by to say a big THANK YOU to the lovely Judy at http://judyscardcorner.blogspot.ca  for choosing me as one of her five recipients of the Liebster Blog Award! This is my second "blog award" ever, thank you so much, Judy!

I met Judy about 3 years ago when I first started hanging out with the Hero Arts Flickr Group. She was one of the ladies who provided so much support to me during a difficult time and her love & concern meant so much. I am sorry to say that I am late in sharing this award with you today, but it is because I  haven't been feeling well. I have been having migraine headaches, but I didn't want to put this off any longer. Judy is such a great friend and I wanted to show her that I am truly honoured that she would think my blog was a great blog. Thanks so much sweetie. It means so much to me.  

This is what this Award is all about:

"Liebster" is German for 'dearest.' The award is a 'share-the-love' arrangement, given to inspirational bloggers with fewer than 200 followers (based on Google followers).
Here's the to-do list of any Liebster award recipient:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you
2. Reveal your five blogger picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog (see above)
4. Hope that those you award forward it to their favorite bloggers

So thanks again Judy for awarding me with this and now is the tough decision! Lol. What 5 amazing bloggers do I chose! Lol. So here are 5 bloggers in no particular order who leave lots of love and encouragement for me each time I post.

1. Maureen Morton: Maureen is one of those ladies that leaves comments that would melt butter. Her geniune care and concern for you really shines through in her words and her creations are just beautiful. I met her through Hero Arts Flickr group and I am so happy that she became a friend of mine. Thanks sweetie for being you and for being in this big paper crafting world.

2. Susanne:  Now this is one lady who's work will make you long for many days filled with romance and love. Her cards are just that! Romantic to a fault! With soft muted tones, stamped images of roses, and touches of lace, your sure to fall in love with her work too. My only regret is that I haven't been leaving her so much love on her blog has I should but I do try my best to leave her some comments on her work in our Hero Arts Flickr group. Thanks for inspiring me to step outside of my comfort zone and step into a world of romance and delight. Hugs.

3. Natalie: Meeting this lady was such a wonderful experience because not only is she a Canadian like myself but she makes vintage style cards like it's no body's business. Her style is totally out of this world and her distressing is so amazing. Her collection of all things antique, especially her Christmas bulbs are stunning and then she makes ATC's to match. Just pure delight to see and even better to own. I know because I have some of her creations on my crafting shelf. Just love her work so much. Thanks for the inspiration.

4. Emily:  Now this lady is someone who started following my blog when I was a Designer for Scraptacular Images. I met her in the scrapbooking store forum and she is a real sweetheart. She lives in this area and is someone who I really need to meet soon. Her big heart and giving ways really is something to be rewarded. I remember her winning one of my blog give-aways and then next thing I knew, I had a packaged delivered to me. And it was from Emily. Just some Happy Mail that she wanted to send to me. Now isn't that sweet. Her blog shares many Cricuit creations and some yummy recipes as well. Make sure to check it out.

5. Deedee Anderson: This is the lady who was my boss and I am happy to say that she was my friend first. Being on her design team for Deedee's Digis was one of the best experiences that I had has a card crafter. Her friendship meant so much to me, but her encouragment, prayers and love meant even more. Whenever I was having a down day in my creating she was always that voice whispering in my ear that I could do it and remind me of what I have already accomplished. Her faith in Christ and love for family really blessed me. It made me want to try to be a better Mom, Wife, & friend.  Her work as a digital designer is totally amazing and her skill of design is truly a gift from above. Her willingness to provide the crafting world with wholesome images and sentiments of encouragement is what really drew me to her work and company. I am honoured to call you "Friend" Love you sweetie.

Now there are many others who I could have listed here as friends with less than 200 followers. And there are others who I could less just because they are always so supportive and have many followers like my good friend Dorcas. My first blogging buddy! Lol. But there might not be enough time in your day to read them all. So now that I have listed only 5, why not go and visit them and sign up to follow their blogs. You will love their work and really find yourself being amongst good friends. Please check out Judy's blog as well and see her many creations. You won't be sorry that you did.

That's it for now folks. I do have 4 projects to share but I haven't been able to feel well enough to wrap my head around taking pics, editing, and making a post. Sorry. Well try again tomorrow.

Take Care & Happy Creating
