The Liebster Award

April 10, 2014

Today was that day of the month destined to go out and run the so needed errands on my to do list. Mostly it was a shopping day. I just arrived home, happy and tired (my boy came with me, and that requires extra energy), and to my surprise, enormous surprise, I find out I was nominated for the Liebster Award! I received a message from the lovely Diana Nguyen, Challenge Team member of Our Daily Bread Designs, saying that she had nominated my blog for the Liebster Award. Thank you so very much Diana, for your kindness and support.
 
The Liebster Award helps bring awareness to blogs with less than 300 followers. I started my blog in January 2014 and this award gives me a great opportunity to share my work with many more in the blogging community. So it's amazing that Diana thought of me, THANKS girl!

Here are my answers to Diana's questions:

1) When did you start stamping? 

I started making cards on 2010, but it was until 2011 that I really discovered what paper crafting was about, so to speak.

2) Name one blogger on your reading list.

Becca Feeken for sure (Amazing Paper Grace).

3) Cat or Dog? 

Cat! I've had at least 10 during the first 20 years of my life.

4) Orderly or messy? 

Somewhere in between. See, I am a perfectionist, so originally I'm orderly. But I'm a mom now, and with a little boy comes some mess for sure! I embrace it, and keep going... LOL

5) Favorite way to color? 

Lately, water coloring... I'm in love with watercolor resist

6) Favorite creation? 

It has to be Cottage Charm. This card was designed for an ODBD challenge and it was recently chosen Weekly Favorite on Splitcoast Stampers. It's given me friends, it's opened doors for me and I'm thankful for that.

7) Pet peeve? 

Well, I'm a daughter of a veterinarian, and I got to see him do surgery on horses and sort. I even helped raise new born calves at some point. So I've seen a lot. BUT, I can't stand reptiles that's something I don't like at all, and yes I've seen plenty, but I can't get used to them! LOL.
 
8) Favorite vacation spot? 

Bay Islands (Roatán to be exact), Honduras.

9) Favorite movie? 

My recent favorite is The Great Gatsby... Yes, I know, which else right? I even made a card inspired on the movie: Daisy Inspired. Those who know me and my blog, know how much I love vintage/retro/shabby.  

10) Best day ever? 

A day out of town with my husband and son.

11) Other hobby besides stamping? 

Not at the moment. But I do enjoy watering and fertilizing my plants, though I don't think it's enough to call it gardening (I wish!).

I am delighted to be part of this award chain, it is a true blessing to me and I will forever appreciate it. I was not expecting and maybe that makes it even more delightful. This is a very, very new blog, so THANK YOU Diana, and THANK YOU FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS, for your support! You made my day even better!
