I just received a Liebster Award from Amy at Clearly Stamping!  Thank you so much for giving me this blog award.  It was a nice surprise for my day.  If you haven’t checked out Amy’s blog, be sure to do so.

A little about the Liebster. This is how it works…

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!

And now the 5 bloggers that I am going to pass this award on to:

1. Charlotte at Scrapsensational
2. Julia at You Can Create
3. Justine at Cardiology
4. Wendy at Getting Started
5. Connie at Connie’s Crafty Closet

You won’t want to miss all the talent that can be found on these blogs.  These ladies are very creative and I am so excited to pass this award onto them for their blogs.

Choose one of the following to post on your blog and then choose your five nominees to share it with.


I  know it’s not Sunday but I’m going to be having an occasional special edition to make up for the month of June.  Come back tomorrow for another one!

D1384 Snow Flurries

This Snow Flurries stamp set is one that is retiring so it is only available through July 31, 2012.  I stamped with Twilight and White Daisy inks.  I embossed with some glittery embossing powder on the white for a pretty effect.  I wasn’t sure how it would turn out because I did it over top of multiple layers and on that bottom picture but it all turned out just fine.  Here’s the best closeup I could get:
