Liebster Award!!!!

WOW!!  I am so honored and humbled today by one of my fellow paper crafters, Terri!!  Thank you so much - you totally made my day, my week, heck my whole year!!!  I began my blog at the tugging advice of a friend to share what I love to do so much - PLAY!!!  My proverbial playground has so many stations I couldn't list them all here without everyone falling asleep but let's just say I love to make things and I love to make them my own way!  It is such a wonderful feeling to know that other people are actually peeking into my little world and enjoying what they see.  Thank you Terri so very much for being such a faithful follower and for thinking of me for this awesome award!!


Liebster is a German word meaning "Beloved," "Favorite," or "Dearest." This award is a peer to peer award in which fellow bloggers present the award to their favorite bloggers with less than 200 followers. The origins of this award is unclear, but is believed to have originated by a German blogger. This award was designed to be a blog award in the pay it forward fashion to share your dearest and most beloved blogs that have less than 200 followers.

Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their blog. Post the award onto your blog. Give the award to five bloggers who you appreciate that have less than 200 followers. Leave a comment on their blog letting them know that you have given them this awesome award!

Like Terri, I follow quite a few wonderful blogs of some very talented people!  Choosing five was extremely difficult but rules are rules!!  So here goes....
Marilyn of Paper Dreams

Missouri is keeping a little secret...but today, I'm telling!!!  I love Marilyn's take on the challenges, her eye for color combinations in uncanny!  All of her creations are beautiful, clean and inspiring!

Kris of Purple Night Owl

I may not have ever met Kris in person but I can tell you she is fun and whimsical!  How do I know? Go check out her creations and you will see for yourself!

Shae of Glitter and Bonbons
Again, a person I have never met yet we have so much in common!  We have very similar interests and hobbies! From fabulous cards to beautiful roses, she is amazing!  I must admit, I am quit jealous... she has only been blogging for a little over a month and is already blogging like RockStar while I am still in groupy status!  Go check out all the wonderful things that make her happy!!

Lois of Clownmom Creations

This wonderful lady is a pleasure to follow!  Everything she makes is nothing short of stunning!  you just have to see for yourself on this one!

Last but not least...

Cathymac of Golden Inkspirations
I swear I have a kinship to this woman!!  She loves Golden Retrievers and Coloring!!!!  What more in life does one need anyway?? I think our dogs even look alike! ha ha ha!!  Anyway, her work is B-E-A-Utiful!  Her style is very classy and unique!  I hope you wag your tails on over to see her golden creations! 

Please take just a few of your time and visit all these wonderful blogs. I just know you will love them as much as I do and be prepared to be inspired!!  Don't forget to l
eave a little love when you visit. Thank you!!

Thanks again to Terri for thinking of me. You are AWESOME!!
