I've been honoured with a Blog Award !

Hi there !    I've come down with a terrible cold which has caused me to lose my voice, cough too much and I have no energy.    Last night I was really feeling the effects but I was cheered up when I read a message that Sue over at Sue's Crafty Corner has honoured me with this Blog award !  Thank you Sue for all your kind words and visits to my Blog.   Sue creates beautiful cards, check them out at her Blog  !

I was curious about what the name of this award translates to in English.   So I googled and found that Liebster is German and most likely translates to mean Beloved or Favourite.   Very sweet !    This award is designed to help promote favourite Blogs that have less than 200 followers.  

Part of receiving the award means a little challenge and here are the steps I need to take:

Pass on the award to five other people, whose Blogs have inspired me,  and also as mentioned it needs to be someone who has less than 200 followers.

Add a comment on their blog, so that they know about it.

Link back to the person who gave me the award and thank them. (which I have done above ! )

Post the award on my blog.

It's challenging to just pick five.  Listed are the ladies (in alphabetic order) that I would like to give this award to for giving me so much inspiration and support.     I felt very honoured when Sue passed this to me and I hope you feel the same.     However it's also not necessary to me that you mention my name.

Donna at Creative Smiles
Ellen at The Serendipitous Stamper 
Helen at Crop Circles
Marja at Marja's Stamp Addiction
Miranda at 'Mir'acle art Inspirations

Thank you again Sue for being so kind and now I need to leave a message at the above Blogs !
Have a great day

Hi Shirley, First of all, thank you very much for your Award. That I appreciate very much, but I already got one. Of course I mentioned in my next post you have given me this award but I'll not send him to other people. In my award in the side-bar I mentioned your name. Sorry. I hope you can understand. Then I hope you feel better soon. Thanks again. With lots of love.

Hi Shirley, No sorry. Don't do that. I am very proud you give me this award and it is a pleasure to put your name on it. I have done that yet. And I am very glad you understand.
My sweet greets

oh my! I'm batting 100% today! I replied to your e-mail, only to discover it is a "no-reply" address LOL -
Oh boy! Thank you, Shirley! I am so excited! I've followed the directions and left it for 5 more individuals – after having visited your favorite 5. It surely was difficult choosing!
thanks again,
