An award & a card

In the past few weeks, I've been very kindly awarded a blog award from Kara, Crystal & Laurence. Thank you, my friends!

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.

Here are my five nominees, in alphabetical order:

And before I go, here's a card I wanted to share...

I used PTI cardstock (rustic white, aqua mist, new leaf), stamps (iconic images, love & marriage, happy trails) & dies (limitless layers ovals). The patterned paper is Crate and the music note stamp (which I "kissed" the iconic image bird stamp) is Hero Arts.

I hope you're having a great Sunday!
I've been spending my afternoon making cards on my dining room table and tonight, Cameron & I will go play volleyball at our church.

Thanks for looking!

Thank you so much, Leigh. It is really an honor, and I so appreciate it. I adore your card. First of all, that filigree die looks like it is mirroring the pattern of the paper--beautiful. Also, I have been reading about the kissing technique, and I love how it looks on your bird.

Congratulations on your award. Love the pattern paper on this card with the border. The bird is lovely with the kissed musical note. Very creative.

Just so you know, you're one of my picks for his award too! I love coming and seeing what you've done with PTI. This beautiful card reminds me why, it's gorgeous! I sold my Happy Trails set, and I am so sorry. It's on my wish list again! Thank you Leigh!
