Blog award

, ,

Blog Award
My good news for today is my blogging friend http://flourgirlcrafts.blogspot.com/
The idea of the Liebster Blog Award is to spread the love from one small blog (under 200 followers) to other small blogs. This helps to spread knowledge and readership.
To accept the award, you must:

1) Link back to the person who gave it and thank them for thinking of you.

2) Post the award to your blog.

3) Give the award to 5 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) that you appreciate and value.

4) Leave a comment on the blogs of the five people you have chosen to let them know."Liebster" in German means "dearest", so to carry on the Liebster tradition, I am going to pass the award on to 5 people who's blogs have been an inspiration to me and my crafting.
I would like to pass on this award to the following 5 people.

Mothers day card

As promised ,heres a little 5 inch square 'Mothers day' card ,using some of the ribbon from Lidl
I just cut off a 6 inch strip and attached at the top,so it all dangles
I think it looks cool
I have kept to a creamy theme with this card ,has quite a nostalgic look ,in my opinion ,,left the sepia image as it was.
Most of the embellishments are from my stash


I would like to enter this card in the following challenge

great find at Lidls

just bought this 3 metre roll of gift ribbon from Lidls,it seems fantastic value at £1.99 .cos actually you are able to pull the ribbons apart so will end up with,
3 metres of 1/2 organza ribbon,
3 metres of cream satin ribbon with little wooden butterflies attached
also there is a crem irridesant cord with pearls attached at intervals
great value for all you crafters out there

Or,you can use it as it is ,I will try some on a card later this evening

Lily of the valley,'MUM' easel card

My newest make,thought I would do an easel card ,haven't done one for a while so here it is.
The image is one from my free 'lily of the valley' stack ,which came with the newest issue of Papercraft inspiration.
When I clapped my eyes on this ,I just had to colour it in and get it on a card,lol.
The image is coloured with pro-markers

ISn't this image just divine,I love the little ted with his flowers ,the organza bow,was off a little gift I received,waste not,want not.the curly bits ,I bought of flea bay.

The lace flower ,I made from a scrap of lace,the pink satin flower came from China ,the sentiment is Kanban.
I really love this ,wish I could send it to myself ..................................
