With Sympathy

I have a quick share today.  I had some sunflower stickers that I really wanted to use up.  So, here is one of the cards that I came up with.  Thanks for looking.

I am in the thick of pregnancy.  So, the posts may be somewhat sparse for a time to come.  Thanks for understanding.

Liebster Blog Award

Wow!  I have been behind on my blog reading the past few days.  What a surprise to see my name for a Liebster Blog award!  Thank you Rhonda Hampton who blogs at Stamp a Piece.  It was truly an honor for you to name me.

Liebster' is German for 'dearest'.  The award is a 'share-the-love' arrangement, given to inspirational bloggers with less than 200 followers. 

Here's the to-do list of any Liebster award recipient:

Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
Reveal your five blogger picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog
Copy and paste the award on your blog (see above)
Hope that those you award forward it to their favorite bloggers.

Now for my picks.  This is truly a tough one.

Kristina who blogs at Itty Bitty Pieces of Me - I have been following her blog for a long time now.  She shares many cards with PTI and Verve.  Both of which are companies I love to shop at.  And her blog is so pretty.  I love the tree in her blog header!!  You don't want to miss her blog.

Sue Ann who blogs at Simply Sue Ann - I have only been following her blog for a short period of time.  But, WOW-wee!!  Talk about some serious talent.  She isn't a frequent blogger.  But when she posts, I am always so inspired by her work.

Sara Mac who blogs at The Unhurried Life - I also had the pleasure of meeting her at CHA 2 years ago.  Sara has a CAS way with her cards that make it look so effortless.  My favorite posts of hers are the ones that she uses a photo for inspiration.  It always blows me away at what she makes from the photo.  I just stare in amazement and how she has an eye to really pull out the essence of the photo.  And then every now and then, she will create a scenic card that just blows me away!  She doesn't do many of them, but when she does, I love them.  (scenic like this one or that one) Amazing or what!!

Jennifer K who blogs at Maple Street Menagerie - She is for the most part a CAS crafter.  I also love that she uses a lot of PTI products.  So, I am able to get so much inspiration from her.  What I admire about her the most is she is a smart crafter.  She uses her supplies to create looks that look like something else.  Here is an example of her creative use of supplies.

Dr. Ivy who blogs at Inklinations (don't you just love that blog name - brilliant!!)  I met her at CHA 2 years ago and she is as nice as she is creative.  My favorite thing about her blog is that there is no shortage of cards made with scripture or with a "faith" element to them.

Well, that rounds out my list.  I hope that you find another great blog that you may or may not have been visiting frequently.  All 5 of these will not disappoint.

Also, I just want to say a big THANK YOU to Rhonda.  I don't blog for the "accolades", but it is nice to be recognized sometimes.
