What an honor....

I was nominated for the Liebster Award by one of my blog readers...Suzanne from Beauty and Blessings.  Liebster is German a word for beloved, dearest or favorite and this award is shared only among those of us with 200 or less followers.  I am so overwhelmed by this, I love making cards and connecting with so many other talented ladies who are so inspiring and creative.  I have met so many talented ladies and made so many awesome online friends which I am so blessed to have.  This is the second time that I have been nominated for this award...I feel bad because I never did acknowledge Renee from It's A Patchwork Life, I had the flu and saw the mention and then forgot all about it.  Renee is one of those women who inspires me every time I check out her blog.

Part of the honor is to pass it along to five others who are  encouraging me and others through their sweet comments as well as inspiring us with their own beautiful projects. So I gladly pass this honor on to:
Joyce,  Cards-by-the-Sea
Renee, It's A Patchwork Life
Cathy, Empty Nest Crafter
Katie, Our Charmed Life
Maureen, Buttons and Bling
It is so hard to select just five ladies, there are so many more that I could list.  Be sure to stop by each of these blogs and check out the fabulous creations! Suzanne and Renee, thank you so much for the honor.

I spent part of the day today working on some Easter crafts for my kids at school, we are going to make Easter baskets using the PTI Front & Center Die. I cut them all out and closed up the sides and I will have the students decorate with color crayons and some fun Easter stickers I purchased today.  Since I was in the cutting out mode, I decided to cut out a few extra to make for a few of my friends but I added a bit more  and made  a seed packet filled with Jelly Belly's and a touch of Easter grass and glitter.  Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. How adorable!!
    Love how you used the Front and Center for this...
    and then those adorable little Jelly Bellies...
    such a fabulously fun project! :)
    And thank you so much...
    you're such a doll! :)

  2. Congratulations, Kim, that is a great honor to be recognized by fellow crafters! Great use of the Front and Center die for an Easter basket and the seed packet is the perfect packaging for jelly belly candy.

  3. Oh Kim this is so sweet! I did the seed packets already but I think I will make the basket holder like you did, that is just adorable! I love this creative idea you came up with! You should post it on the forum or something.
