Liebster Award - Update

A real long time ago my blogging friend Rosi/DaenY's gave me a Liebster award!

I was touched and very surprised - I never expected that!
Thank you so much Rosi - it means so much to me! What a lovely gesture!

But the rules are:

Of course you have to thank the person giving it to you.
Post the award and link it to this person
Hand the award to 5 people with less than 200 followers
Write a comment on those blogs and let them know you gave them an award.

 I was really busy at the time and put it off and thought it is going to be easy to hand it to five people. But that turned out to be wrong - I really struggled with this. There are myriad of wonderful blogs out there - how to choose 5? I wanted to give the award to somebody I feel I have a personal connection to and not somebody I do admire with their creations and I keep commenting, but I never hear back from them - does anybody else feel the same way? I also wanted to give it to somebody who had never received one. And my last selection criterion was that I wanted to give it to somebody who is not already on  highly visible design teams - they get a lot of publicity anyhow. I guess I made it harder than it had to be....

So without further ado -  here are my 5 faves - in alphabetical order:

I actually have 5 more people on my list....

Cathy sadly turned down the award, but as I said - I have more people on my list so here is my next choice:


Hopefully Maria you are not insulted to not be on the initial list  - I love your blog and your writing!

Go hop on over, it you have time - each blog is special in its own way and belongs to truly lovely people!

Hi Cornelia, thank you so much for the nomination! What a lovely surprise. I replied in a comment on my blog too. I think I am disqualified though as I did receive a nomination in Feb and 2 in March this year not long after I started blogging. I was a bit overwhelmed and sadly have yet to pay forward the award!! I noticed that you have some other people you'd like to include and thought I'd better let you know.
Thank you again though, it's lovely to know that you like my cards :)

I have visited your other nominees and really enjoyed my visits there, TFS, Cathy x

Oh wow, Cornelia! Thank you so much for the nomination! So very kind and sweet of you! I think I agree with your criteria as well. I try to comment on everyone's blogs as much as I can. I do fall behind though. :-). Thank you again. You rock!

Vielen dank, Cornelia. I've done this before but will keep my eye open for new bloggers and will pass it on. Eventually ;)

Oh, an den hab ich gar nicht mehr gedacht. Schön, dass du ihn weitergibst, das kann gerade bei den Einsteigern ein bisschen Schupps für die Blogs geben. Ich habe mich auch riesig über meinen ersten Award gefreut...
....das es nicht einfach war, will ich dir gerne glauben!!

Hi Cornelia,
I just realized I never thanked you for the award! I was going to do it on my blog when I pass it on, but realized that you are right, it's not that easy and it is taking me longer than I anticipated.
It was very sweet of you to give me, as a total newbie a little kick, as Daen'Ys says!
So I have not forgotten it, it's coming!!

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
