Hello again, as I said earlier I would be back later to post the names of my 5 Nominees for the
Liebster award.
To my amazement I recieved this award from Kim :) and I am greatly honoured to accept. So firstly thank you so much for this award Kim. You can find her blog here so please hop over and have a peek.
This award was designed to promote blogs which have less than 200 followers. Once the award is accepted, the idea is to pay it forward to five other blogs you enjoy, encouraging others to visit, leave comments, and hopefully follow.
To accept the award:
Thank the person who gave it to you and link back to their blog. Post the award on your blog. Give the award to five other bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

Write a comment on their blog letting them know they have been nominated.
Kim is also a semi finalist for the Heartfelt Creations DT call and I left her a message on her blog to wish her luck and became a follower as I love her design styles and also because on one of her posts she wrote how that one day she would love to have a career in crafting and would love to do magazine work....... well I just thought wow! we have the same dreams:) So thats's how we met in blog land x
So here is my THANK YOU from one blogger to another! (This is one of the reasons I am just loving this blogland.... there are so many wonderful, caring and talented crafters that I wouldn't have known even exsisted).

NOW for  5 others that I would like to nominate with less than 200 followers:

First is Monica Lowrance. Monica is also a HFC design team finalist and was one of the first to congratulate me on getting through. We have emailed each other a few times too and I feel that even though we have never met that she is part of my growing number of crafting blog friends. Her designs are very unique and gorgeous and I love the way she tries lots of different mixed medias, and she is certainly an inspiration for me to try other techniques :)This is her blog http://happyscrappn2.blogspot.co.uk/

My next nominee is Marilyn (newfie crafter). Marilyn has left some lovely comments on my blog, which I really appreciate the fact that she has taken time to hop over and take a look :)
I love her designs and the fact that she uses some gorgeous dies and papers, they are so inspirational.
I do believe that she has recieved this award before however i'm sure that you can be awarded it more than once.... well anyway I think she truely deserves it:) This is her blog http://craftsbeyond.blogspot.co.uk/

My 3rd nominee is Carole. Carole as with Marilyn has left me some lovely comments and without crafting bloggers like her then us new bloggers wouldn't have the inspiration to keep posting.
Carole's designs are really beautiful so please hop over and take a look at her blog :) http://8thwonderart.blogspot.co.uk/

My 4th nominee goes to Oskana Clegg. Oskana is another well deserved finalist for the HFC design team call and again has left me a lovely, kind comment. I can only describe her designs as clean, fresh and elegant., they are just beautiful :).http://www.everydaycrafting.blogspot.co.uk/
I wish her and all the other HFC dt call semi finalists lots of luck x

My final nominee isYuri Kitamura from Japan, WHY? because I have absolutley fell in love with her creations:).  I came accross Yuri in blog land a few weeks ago on a challenge blog and then again on several others so I hopped on over to see her designs on her blog and WOW! what a very talented lady:) and to my amazement she has only been crafting since May 2012, my jaw was open for hours:)
Please visit her blog as i'm sure that you to will love her designs http://soffamagnolia.blogspot.co.uk/

Well thats my 5 Nominees all with very different creative talents, but all that I admire and find very inspirational :)
