I got a lovely surprise the other day when my good friend Kasey at Kasey's Craft Corner nominated my blog for a Liebster Award! I happily do my blogging and sharing of my creations and I always get a buzz when the creations are recognised by others, whether it is a comment at the end of a post, or in this case an actual Blog Award.
I would in turn like to pass the award to five ladies who inspire me on a regular basis, in no particular order they are ...
Shirley at Stamping Elephants - I love Shirley's work, it is usually bright and cheerful, she often uses bright colours that I find a challenge to use. I was lucky enough to meet Shirley at Convention last year, and stayed with her just a couple of weeks ago.
Tina at Scissors Paper Card - Tina has a 'can do' attitude and nothing seems to get her down. She inspires me with all of her creations - I think it might just be her scrapbook pages that will one day get me scrapping again!
Deb Fearns - Deb is a fellow demonstrator here in Canberra, and while I don't see her in person I love following her blog, and am hoping we might catch up at Convention this year. I love the way Deb adds the extra details to a card, she has a real knack for making a simple card extra special with a piece of ribbon or twine, brad or hand cut embellishment.
Paula at Stampinantics - Paula has a simple elegance to her creations that I find really beautiful. I also love the way she decorates the inside of her cards, not overstated but in a softly complimentary way. I also got to meet Paula at Convention last year which was great.
Ann at A Perfect Day For ... - Ann is another Canberra demonstrator who I met for the first time last year at Convention. She is so friendly and such a genuine person. Ann does beautiful work, whether it is on a card or scrapbook page, her attention to detail is something that inspires me.
I would ask that each of these lovely ladies pass the award on to five creative blogs that inspire them, or that they feel deserve a special mention. Ideally this award is for the lesser known bloggers, with less than 200 followers, it is funny because I didn't think any of my recipients would have less than 200 but all of them do! Please visit them and let them know how much you too enjoy their work.
