Saturday's Paper Ala Mode Challenge at Outlawz

Good Morning. It's another beautiful day here in Northeastern PA. Spring is my favorite season and I think it's officially here! The weather has been warmer for over a week, but the warmer days are usually followed by a snow storm, so it's always touch and go.
I am a day late posting this, but better late than never right? lol

This week's challenge at Paper Ala Mode at Outlawz is "Add A Bow- the BIGGER the Better".
We hope you will stop by and join us!

Leibster Award

Good morning! Yesterday I had the daunting task of choosing only 5 bloggers who I thought were deserving of the Liebster Award. One of my picks, Anji, at Anji's Antics asked me to award this to another blogger, as she had already received this for someone else. It was difficult to choose only 5 yesterday, and today I was faced with picking just one!  So, I hope that Teresa from Tickell Expressions will please accept this award, and pay it forward!

Lieber Blog Award

I want to send a HUGE thank you to  Darlene at Scrappy Dues for selecting me to receive the Liebster Award. It is such an honor! I am brand new to the blog world, and this certainly inspires me to continue on with this journey!
"The origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear but the general consensus is that it originated in Germany, Liebster meaning favorite or dearest, to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. Upon accepting the award the recipient must then pass it on to five more blogs of note."

Without further adieu, here's what you do as a presenter of this award!

1.Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
2.Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you.
3.Copy and paste the blog award on your blog.
4.Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve.
5.Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment at their blog.

So, now it's my turn to pay it forward, my picks for fellow bloggers with less than 200 followers, in no particular order, are as follows:

Chana at Card-D-Ology
Sandi at Sandi's Sample

Now, if each of the 5 ladies I chose would please choose 5 of their own!

This is for my entry in Guylou's Inimitablity Challende.."you are so not my Valentine". The card had to be for someone other than your significant other, and had to include black. Here's my take on that.

OMG! So Embarrassing!

Ok, for those of us who are or have been dog owner, have dealt with this most embarrassing situation at least once! My father called me Thurs. night and ask me to make a Valentine for his sister, who is, a dog owner. Being it was a Valentine from brother to sister, I decided to go with a humorous card. I hope you like it. LOL
I entered this card in Just Inspiration Challenges picture inspired challenge.

Key to My Heart

I made this card for my friend Deb for Valentine's Day.
