Here are suggestions that come with the Liebster Blog award, which as I understand it is intended to encourage and showcase bloggers with less than 200 followers:
--Thank the blogger who presented your award on your blog, and link back to them.
--Show the Liebster Blog badge on your blog (copy/paste from the presenter's blog).
--Present the Liebster Blog award to 5 blogs that have less than 200 followers.
--Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment on their blog.
Now my only problem is, as far as I can tell my very favorite bloggers already have received this award! So I'm going to do something a little different. First, I'll give links to some of my favorite bloggers that have already received the award so you can check out their fabulous work, then I will give you links to some wonderful bloggers that (as far as I can tell) have not received the award, so you can show them some love too!
So, here are some past recipients of the award (in alphabetical order):
Anna, who does absolutely lovely card designs. And her recipes are incredibly drool-worthy!
Cassandra, who has totally mastered the CAS concept. Her beautiful creations featuring intricate cutting have to be seen to be believed!
Lisa, who always has a cute and quirky touch of genius in her cards. Not to mention the ability to combine patterns perfectly (especially polka dots!)!
Suzanne, who has a wonderful design sense--I always wonder why I didn't think of that when I see her cards!
Tracey, who, besides her wonderful color and pattern sense, displays a playfulness in her designs that I wish I could achieve!
Thank you my friends for all your inspiration!
And now for the designers whose work is a little newer to me but I will certainly be following your work and be inspired by it:
Carolanne, who does wonderful paper piecing and is very inventive!
Kelly, who works wonders in three dimensions--check out her valentine card especially!
Michelle, who designs lovely, lovely cards created with a wonderful eye for color.
Susan: Not only a creative paper crafter, but a master seamstress as well!
Missy, who has a way of combining colors and patterns that is just fabulous!
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, Tracey and Suzanne, thank you for choosing to tag my blog!
Now, of course I can't do a posting without a photo, so here is a card I did a long time ago that I never found an opportunity of posting.
This card was done before I had a good photography set-up, so apologies for the poor quality. As near as I can remember, the bee came from a SU set (In Full Bloom I think) and the DP is from DCWV. The caption at the top was created with JustRite Stampers letters. Spellbinders die cuts and thin yellow ribbon mounted behind the die cut finished off the card.
Thanks for looking, and have a nice day!
