Liebster Award – Paying it Forward

I am so excited – this morning I received an email from a new blogging friend Penny who nominated me for this Blog award!

I am surprised and SO grateful for this recognition!!  Thank you so much! Yahoo, Me!!!

LeibsterThis award is all about getting to know new crafty friends, perusing their blogs for new ideas and inspiration to help kick your mojo into high gear!

Part of the process is for me to answer a few questions about myself, then to select a few blogs I visit and nominate them (thus, paying it forward).

 Here are some details about daisiesgirl:

Tell me your favorite three supplies you use most?My Texture Boutique embossing machine, Stampin’ UP inks, and foam mounting dots (I like dimension)

How long have you been making cards?Well I started in a serious way about 1997 so 16 plus years.

What do you do with all the cards you make? Well, I make a lot but I also send a lot. I try to send at least one every day.  Somedays I miss but then when I do send some it is usually at least 5 or more. Once I start writing them, I think of others who need a note, and I just keep adding to my list, and end up sending out a stack!

What is your favorite technique to use when making cards? Using embossing folders to create an embossed front to my card

What are your favorite color combo’s to use? Primary colors – but mostly anything with Yellow

How long and what inspired you to start blogging? I started in Oct 2012 and I started because I thought it would be a fun way to share things that I made to add cuteness and beauty to the world.  I continued and gained momentum with the discovery that I really want to inspire others and myself to make beautiful things to show others we care!!

How does your family handle your craftiness? Do they approve? Well most of my children give the obligatory – “oh, that’s cute, Mom”. The daughter who shares her room with my craft space tends to be a little unsure of how she feels since she is a teen sharing with her mom. :) And my wonderful, supportive husband tells me to go for it!!

 I would like to nominate some very special blogs/bloggers/friends for this award also:
