Papertrey Ink's 6th Anniversary and Liebster Award

Today Papertrey Ink's contest was to make cards using the sketches above. My goal today was to get all 5 made but I only managed to complete 2 of them. We are having the carpets cleaned tomorrow and I just started cleaning in my craft room and then one thing lead to another and like I said, I only finished two cards. There is still time to play along on some of PTI's Anniversary contests, so head over to Nichole's blog and enter, I love getting free stamps!

I also have some important business to take care of tonight...I was so honored when I received a blog post from this amazingly talent lady, Kristie from Kreative Kristie. She awarded Cupcakes, Cards and Kim with the Liebster Award. I was blown away when I read her blog post and that I was included in the bunch, this is truly an honor Kristie, thank you so much. Kristie is so creative and talented, you have to check out her blog.

This award was designed to be a blog award in the pay it forward fashion. Once you've been nominated, you award it to blogs that you like that have fewer than 200 followers, to encourage new visitors to visit these new blogs. 

Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their blog. Post the award onto your blog.  Give the award to five bloggers who you appreciate that have fewer than 200 followers. Leave a comment on their blog letting them know that you have given them this awesome award!

 With my blog being very new I have entered in quite a few challenges and have found some wonderful blogs in the process.   Here are five blogs that I think you should check out:
I am truly blessed to know each one of these amazing and talented ladies, thanks to each and everyone of them for all their support and encouragement since I have been blogging. You are all simply amazing!
