Liebster Blog Award

One of my blogging buddies Kerrie, gave me this award. She is one super talented lady and i am so envious of her inking in skills LOL 

This award however is slightly different from the usual awards you see. This award is to showcase some of the not-so-well-known blogs. We have some talented crafters out there and this is one way for you to find new and interesting blogs. All you have to do is nominate three to five blogs you read and want others to get to know .

If I tag you and you want to participate, create a post where you post the 'LOVE BLOG' image. You should also blog the persons link that gave you the award and inform her/him that you accept the award. You can then choose 3 - 5 favorite blogs which you also link in your post, then each blogger will inform you that they have been tagged.

Special Note from the Originator:
The aim of this action is that we bring unknown, good blogs to light, so I would ask you not to blog fellow bloggers that already have 3,000 followers.
I chose 3 that I think deserve more followers than they have, because in my opinion they are very talented and make stunning cards...Please pop over and show them some love - honestly I promise you will NOT be disappointed!!
