I am so chuffed to have received the Liebster award from Shirley at Cottonberry Creations thank you so much Shirley, it is an honour to receive it.
It is given to blogs with less than 200 followers and passed from Blogger to Blogger, each hand picked by the previous recipient. This award is not given lightly and takes much thought as to who will receive it. There is a history to the Liebster Blog Award- it originated in Germany and means dearest or beloved, and Liebe is the word for love.
When one accepts the award they agree to:
Thank the person who gave them the award and link back to that person’s blog
Copy and paste the award to their blog
Reveal the next 5 blogs they have chosen to receive the award, commenting on their blog to break the happy news!
And lastly, hope the artists nominated will do the above and keep the award going by accepting and awarding “The Liebster Blog Award” to 5 special bloggers that they too would like to honor.
Here are my five nominees :-

On to my latest offering
I made this card for my friend Tina who very kindly drove a group of us to the Stamperama show in Stevenage last sunday.
This is one of the new Wee stamps that I bought there called Spring Bringer. I fell in love with these stamps when they were digital and I was so pleased to see them now in rubber stamps as I water colour and couldn`t do digi images.
I`ve water coloured with distress inks and added a bit of sparkle here and there, (can`t have a fairy without glitter LOL !)
The paper is Mellisa Francis - Nancy and the flowers are from the same stand as I got the stamp from but I cannot for the life of me remember what it was called !
The punch is Martha Stewart and the sentiment is SU.
I`m hosting my first Stamping Up party tomorrow which I`m really looking forward to and now I`d better get off because I have some baking to do for the occasion, thanks for looking in, bye for now and happy crafting.
