(Warning - long post)  Well THIS is cool!   Melissa at "Oh, Smudge!" nominated me for the Liebster Award!!





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!


Here are the five wonderful blogs that I'm nominating:

Tracey - In My Creative Opinion

Elma - Elborgi's Stempelwelt

Aimee  - Aimee's Creations

Carolyn  - Kings On Paddington

Jennifer  - Ladybug Designs

Be sure to check out these blogs, if you haven't before.

The interesting thing, is Melissa chose Martha at Martha's Creations  and of course I went to check out her blog. She does AMAZING tags and tag cards! How is that for good timing, considering the tag craze I've been on the past week.  :-)

Speaking of tags:

I made two very similar Christmas gift tags using two foil decorated word panels that were fussy cut from a sheet of K&Co Christmas paper.

I stamped a (Fiskars) To/From stamp twice onto scrap white card stock, cut them out and attached one to the back of each tag.  The red print on the back of the tag is also foiled in areas!

The 2nd tag has a strip of the foiled red print paper across the center, and I used bakers twine and a button instead of red sheer ribbon. The base tag layer was cut using a Stampin' Up die. I am LOVING this die set.
