Thinking forward + Liebster Award

As the weather turns to spring, my family and I are thinking about camping this summer and a possible trip to Yellowstone. So exciting!!!!   I hope this happens as I know my daughter (and the rest of us) would love it so much!  The animals and geysers, hiking and fishing, all of it.  Here is a card I made in the spirit of hoping that does happen!

Also, I wanted to share with you a wonderful, wonderful award I got from my sweet friend Kimberly the other day.  She has the biggest heart! I am so tickled that she would pass that love on to me. :)   THANK YOU Kimberly!

Liebster Award is nominated for bloggers that you admire, 
it is all about perusing blogs, betting to know crafty new friends for 
bloggers that have less than 200 followers.

This award is all about getting to know new crafty friends and perusing their blogs for new ideas and to get your mojo into high gear.
Part of the process is to answer a few questions about yourself, then to select a few blogs I visit and nominate them (thus ...... paying it forward ).

I was asked to answer these questions:

1.  The three supplies you use most?

Basic Black ink from SU!, snips for cutting and Fiskars paper trimmer

2. How long have you been making cards?

Started way back in 2007 maybe but got more serious about it in the last few years.  There are so many amazing products to try...and of course I want them all! :)

3. What do you do with all the cards you make?

Send them to friends, family and give them to co-workers.  Some folks at work want to buy some so I am all for that- hello coffee fund!

4. What is your favorite technique when making cards?

I love to stamp and then color!!!  Pencils, markers, water coloring, you name it.

5.  What are your favorite color combos to use?

Anything bright and cheery.

6.  How long have you been blogging and what inspired you to do so?

Maybe a year after I started stamping, wasn't always into that either.  As my love of card making (and product using) grows so does my love for blogging.  i want to share with others and be inspired by them- an inspiration exchange.  I LOVE playing challenges too!

7.  How does your family handle your habit?

Totally supportive!  My husband loves that I have something I like.  ....and I believe my wee little daughter will be following in my footsteps. (Lucky dad!- lol!)

Super congrats on the Liebster; more than well-deserved! Such interesting answers, and your selection of nominees is great. I know you've made their day sparkle with this award! Your card: so delightful! Hope your trip comes to fruition. We haven't been to Yellowstone, but 'kind of' close, when we went to Bozeman. A super cute little city!
