Things I'm excited about!

No new card today but can't help but post this anyway; a picture I found on one of my favorite Lawn Fawn artists, Yainea's blog taken by the super sweet and talented Laurel Beard -a picture I'm so childishly excited about. (Thanks so much Laurel for letting me use it here!)  I wish I could have gone to CHA in person, but at least I can say that I had a card there - and you can see it HERE;

If you like Lawn Fawn stamps as much as I do - don't forget the 6th of April - that's the date for the next Lawnscaping blog hop - wonderful spring cards inspiration and fabulous prizes can be promised!!!!

While I'm at it I might as well show you two projects I had published in CARDS magazine's December issue that I still haven't blogged about;

and one more thing I'm excited about:

Last week I got the Liebster blog award from two wonderful artists; JJ Bolton and Elena Roussakis. - (edited 29th  - and from sweet Kristen of Creative Syzgy) Made my days to read such sweet words about my blog and cards!  Thank you so much!!!
I just have to tell you that when I received it from JJ I started making a list of five people to forward it to, one for each of my 5 favorite stamp companies and I had Elena for Lawn Fawn and Kara for PTI, but then the next day I saw that Kara  had just received it from someone else and the day after I got this from Elena, so I decided to skip that line and passing the award on by putting together a  list of dream qualities I wish I had.
It would be wonderful if I could:

Scrapbook like;
Shien Shien, Tamara and Angela Fehr
Make as cool and creative cards as: Jenny, Emily, Melania and Judith
Color like: Cathy Fong and Yainea
and make as elegant, clean and professional cards as: Kara.

(I can assure you my wish list could go on and on, but if I had all these amazing qualities I think I'd be the best papercrafter around - don't you think!!!??? )
I am so grateful for all the wonderful inspiration I get from these amazingly talented artists and from everyone else that share their talent on blogs – It's such a nice, inspiring and encouraging community to be part of – thank you all!
Have a wonderful day, big hugs, Karin.
