A couple weeks ago I was tagged by Anna for the Liebster Blog Award. How nice! I've never been tagged before so I had to do some research to find out what this means. Apparently it was started in order to give some exposure to smaller blogs (less than 300 followers--I certainly qualify for that!). I was to select 3-5 blogs that I liked that met the criteria, and tag them. These people are to do the same, and link back to my blog to share the love. I like the idea of spotlighting high-quality but lesser known blogs.
I did some searching in the stamping and card-making arena, and found that it was harder that I thought it would be to find a few blogs meeting the criteria that have not already won this award! However, I did finally identify these, and hope you will check them out:
Jeanne Jachna at http://akeptlife.blogspot.com/
Crisanne at http://blackberrycordial.blogspot.com/
Lisa at http://mypapertales.blogspot.com/
Cindy B at http://paperkicks.blogspot.com/
Joyce at http://craftyquills.blogspot.com/
Ladies, please know that you are under no obligation to tag anyone if you'd rather not, but I hope you enjoy checking out these blogs as I did. And Anna, thank you for choosing to tag my blog!
Now, I can't imagine doing a posting without including a photo, so here is an older card from my Splitcoaststampers gallery, made using Stampin Up cardstock and ink, Stampin Up lace stamp, clear cardstock, and PTI's Quilter's Sampler set. The matching pendant was made using 1" square microscope slides sandwiching the quilt block, wrapped with copper foil, soldered with a jump ring and painted gold.
