Liebster Thanks


Sending a huge thanks to Ardyth at MASKerade for nominating me for a Liebster Award.  What a wonderful surprise I found when checking my blog while I was out of town for the weekend.  I am still trying to catch up after being gone. 
This award is given to up-and-coming bloggers who inspire you and have less than 200 followers. The Liebster award takes its name from the German word meaning "Beloved, Dearest or Favourite".

Once nominated, you then:

Acknowledge the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
Give the award to 5 other bloggers, who have less than 200 followers and let them know through a comment on their blog.

Post the award on your blog.

My five nominees ~

Suzanne at Beauty and Blessings
Marybeth at Marybeth's Time For Paper
Tracey at In My Creative Opinion
Ally at Laughadaisy
Leigh at to the full

Please take a moment to stop by their blogs and admire their beautiful work.  They all use Papertrey products, which I absolutely love. 

As I said recently I have become addicted to challenges, so I cannot have a post without a card challenge.  For this one I am combining two ~ this week's "recipe" at Less is More  and the color splash challenge at The Play Date Cafe

The challenge at Less is More ~

This week we're giving you the chance once more to combine themes and
Take Three Challenges
For this challenge we'd like you to choose any three of our past challenges and combine the criteria from them on your card. There's a list of all of our past challenges in the page at the top of our blog.
When writing your post about your submission, we'd like you to identify the three challenges, with week numbers, that you have included in making your card. There's also a page with past sketches should you wish to include one of those in your creation.
We have done this once before and it was great fun, so we hope you'll enjoy it again.
The colors at Play Date Cafe ~

  6. If you could remove the Word Verification from your blog Jean it would save us SO much time. With the number of LIM entries we have to comment on, having to decipher the dreadful letters is most time consuming, especially when we get it wrong.
    There are instructions on how to do this on our blog.
    Thank you

  7. Those flowers look FAB Jean
