Fab Photo Inspiration

Afternoon All.
Well, I must apologise in advance for this being a long post, but I have quite a lot to tell you all.

Yesterday was a very exciting day for me, as I was picked as 'Talent Of The Day' at Joanna Sheens challenge blog, which was such a surprise and honor. I must say a huge thank you to Sue for emailing me to let me know the good news, thank Sue.
Then whilst going through my comments, Crafty Daffy was so very kind, and honored me by giving me the Liebster Blog award. Thank you soooo much xx

The idea of the Liebster Blog Award is to spread the love from one small blog (under 200 followers) to other small blogs. This helps to spread knowledge and readership.
To accept the award, you must:
1) Link back to the person who gave it and thank them for thinking of you.
2) Post the award to your blog.
3) Give the award to 5 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) that you appreciate and value.
4) Leave a comment on the blogs of the five people you have chosen to let them know.
"Liebster" in German means "dearest", so to carry on the Liebster tradition, I am going to pass the award on to 5 people who's blogs have been an inspiration to me and my crafting. To be honest, passing this on will be difficult as there are so many wonderful small blogs that have inspired me. It will be a challenge to chose only 5. However, as needs must, here are 5 wonderful and inspiring blogs/ bloggers that I would love to pass the Liebster Blog award on to (in no particular order).

The 5 bloggers I would like to award are;

Woo at The Crafty Monkey blog, who is my friend as well as an inspiration to me and many more.

Di at Di's Designing Cards, whose cards are always amazing, and I always aspire to make creations like them.

Jacky at Paddington Fan's blog, who is my sister, and often chats to me on the phone whilst we card make together - if that's possible.

Lindyloo at Lindyloo, who has one of the very first blogs I ever followed


Hazel at Just Add Glitter, whose cards always put a smile on my face.

So thank you again to Crafty Daffy for picking me.

Last but not least sees the start of a new challenge at Fab 'n' Funky, and this week we have a photo inspiration for you to follow.

I can't wait to see what all you talented people out there come up with.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;

Addicted To Stamps - summer in winter

Bithday Sundaes - birthday card

Stamptacular Sunday - seeing spots

Crazy 4 Challenges - a childs card

Patties Creations - fancy folds (pleated strip)


Moving Along With The Times - things with wings

Thanks for looking, and thanks for ploughing through such a long post.
