My First Blog Award!!! The Liebster

I can't believe I have received my first blog award!   I got the Liebster Award from Kris over at ShE's CrAFTy. You need to RUN right over and check her out.  She has some really awesome projects.  I won some blog candy from her a couple of month's ago, you can see my mini album that I put together that I won from her on my February 9th post.  Thanks Kris!
About the Liebster Award:

This award was created for bloggers who have fewer than 300 followers, but put a lot of love and heart into their work. It is given to bring light to new blogs and its a great way to share blogs that might not otherwise be seen or ones you want to share with others.

As a recipient you must share the love and pay it forward by.

1- Create a post where you blog about the Liebster award and reveal your 3 to 5 blog picks.
2- Let them know you have chosen them by leaving a comment on their blog about the award.
3- Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4- Have the faith that your followers will rally and show their crafty love back out to those you award this to.
5- Have fun!!!

It's that easy. I follow a lot of blogs and most of these I have met through challenges, YouTube, other crafters or just by chance.

So here are my 5 choices in no particular order.

1.  Dorothy @ Handmade By Dorothy
3. Elaine @ Expressions By Elaine
4. Yvonne @ ink-spirations
5. Veronica @ Crafty Blonde

Thanks for all the inspiration ladies!

A Boy Birthday Card

Ok, creating boy birthday cards are a little more challenging and trying not to add flowers, glitter, and bling. I found some cute comic book words paper and made two cards. I can only display one of them as the other one is for my son and need to do this when I know that I can put a few more postings on top of his card. Hope he likes it as it is going to my nephew...Kyle.

And here is what it looks like on the inside. I still need to stamp something in the inside, just need the right salutation. Wish me luck!

Just received a wonderful package in the mail

Starting out with a story....for month's packages arrive and my boys get so excited but guess what?  They are my DH ebay packages.  Just today an another package arrived and the boys got excited and my DH takes it to open it, looked inside, and gave it to me as it was mine!!!!  Well the excitement was mine this time and my boys did like all the stickles, glitter pens, gels pens, and not to mention the beautiful card by Karel, you can get to her wonderful blog Here.  I am so excited to use these and want to start on Christmas cards and glittery cards.  Who knows maybe do a few snow layouts, as I am 10 years behind.  Please go over to here blog and she is a kind person.  Thanks Karel!!!!!  HUGS!!!
