Liebster Award

A fabulous surprise arrived on my blog the other day, when my wonderful friend, Shea announced she was giving me the Liebster Award!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Shea!

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 fewer 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 fewer 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 fewer than 200 followers. 
- Leave a comment on their blog letting them know that you have given them this awesome award!
So, in no particular order here are the fabulous ladies and their blogs that I would love to share with you:
Jan, at Ink This, Stamp That...has a wonderful blog full of beautiful ATCs, vintage goodness, and beautiful cards!  She's a fellow stamper over at Splitcoast that leaves the kindest, encouraging comments!
Karen at an amazing CAS designer...her clean style continues to amaze me card after card!  Her use of texture and colors totally blows me away!  Karen is another fellow stamper over at Splitcoast who is so generous with her comments!
Bridget at Bridget's Paper Blessings is a former Dirty need to be a Splitcoast fan to understand that term {grin}!  I've followed her work for quite some time and her sponging and keen eye for color are fantastic!  Bridget is another fellow stamper over at Splitcoast who can bring a smile to your face with her sweet comments!
Cibele at Flower Foot Designs is another very talented paper designer.  Her sense of color and visual balance is simply wonderful.  Cibele is another fellow stamper at Splitcoast whose CAS designs really caught my eye when she was a member of the CAS Design Team.
Diane over at Charmingly Creative is a master with dies and punches.  She creates some gorgeous cards!  She's also a fellow stamper over at Splitcoast whose is so kind with her comments!
