To Hold Dear...A Thank You!

A little special something in honor of the Liebster!
   A HUGE thank you to my new friend, Dana at Kraft Paper Stamps, for passing along the Liebster Blog award to me!  It was a lovely surprise during a very hectic time, and I am passing it along with the highest affection to some other papercrafting friends here today!  So...what is the Liebster?  I actually looked it up, and it seems to be a fun way to recognize and share the love of bloggers with a small following:

What is the Liebster Blog award? Here is a quick explanation. 'Liebster' is German for 'dearest'. The award is a 'share-the-love' arrangement, given to inspirational bloggers with less than 200 followers (based on Google followers).

Here's the to-do list of any Liebster award recipient:
1) Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you
2) Reveal your five blogger picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog
3) Copy and paste the award on your blog (see above)
4) Hope that those you award forward it to their favorite bloggers

   I hold these gals--and so many others--dearly, and with affection for the inspiration they share each time they post:

   One more thing for today...just finished a great inspirational read:
It is a terrific validation for the handwritten notecard...something near and dear to our hearts as handcrafters!  This would make a great little graduation gift along with some wonderful thank you cards don't you think?  
Thanks again Dana!  
Spread the love people!
