Leibster Awards.

I was so surprised to receive this lovely award from a very special lady in the states who felt I was good enough to win this award. The word Liebster originates from Germany and means  sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome, so you can imagine how chuffed I was to actually get this 

This award was designed to promote blogs which have less than 200 followers. Once the award is accepted, the idea is to pay it forward to five other blogs you enjoy, encouraging others to visit, leave comments, and hopefully follow. 

To accept the award: 
Thank the person who gave it to you and link back to their blog. Post the award on your blog. Give the award to five other bloggers who have less than 200 followers.  
Write a comment on their blog letting them know they have been nominated.  The special lady I need to thank is  Greta and she regularly comes visiting my blog and always congratulates me on good news or just a card she has loved, she has pretty much been with me from the start,

 I don't really know how we found each other as we are so far away from each other but I am extremely happy we did, she makes fabulous cards and artwork and This is the link to her site please go have a look she is a fabulous lady and from the bottom of my heart thank you for thinking of me and sorry it took so long to collect it too. Bless you.

The next fun part is I get to nominate 5 others with less than 200 members.

One of which is a team member of mine called Lucy Ohanyan we have never met but we joined memory maze design  at the same time but her scrapbook layouts are simply gorgeous. I've loved looking at her work the last few months.  You can too here.

Next is sparkly Tina and she is on my Craftwork cards design team her blog is here , again we have yet to meet but I love her style and she is as her name suggests and when I first joined Craftwork cards she was the first to email and wish me such good wishes and of course all the girls did cos they are fabulous.

Here we have Sharm Nidyanandan and again she is from Memory maze and I chose her even though we haven't met or spoken very much its simply cos I love her craft style which is vintage and pretty , Sharm is from Malaysia  her blog is special too and worth a peep. 
Another fabulous team member for Craftwork cards is Linda Walmsley apart from being a lovely lady her style is just gorgeous and  I love it so I am choosing her too , check out her stunning work
here .

Lastly I am honouring Nikki Payne Nikki is new to my blog but she left me such a lovely comment and we had a little chat , I looked and joined her blog and we have a similar style  but above anything I was just inspired at how very lovely she was to a complete stranger bless you Nikki. You can see her craftiness  here.
