This is two posts in one day for me, an unheard of occasion. I have been honored by Colleen with the
Colleen's blog is and she is a terrific blogger and cardmaker.  Thank you Colleen.

These are the questions she asked.

1. Tell me your favorite three stamp companies.
2. Do you enter challenges?  If so, what are your favorites?
3. How long have you been making cards?
4. What is something you cannot live without in your craft arsenal?
5. What is your style of card making?  (CAS, layered, shabby chic, etc)
6. If you could visit one place in the world (and money was NOT an issue) where would it be?
7. What do you do with all the cards you make?

1. My favorite companies are Simon Says Stamp, Ellen Hutson and Lawn Fawn.
2 I've only done two challenges. One was last year and I don't remember which one it was. The      second one was for Crafthayzelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge, but I couldn't upload my card.
3. I have only seriously been making cards for several years and only at Stampin Up stamp camp. I've been buying supplies for many years but didn't know what to do with them.
4. I can't live without my T ruler and grid mat. I can't get things straight on my cards even with those.
5. My cardmaking is layered. That's how I learned, but after seeing cards on blogs I am trying to stretch my skills and branch out more.
6. I would love to go to Jerusalem and see the Holy City.
7. I send my cards because I usually make them for someone for a purpose. I do however have cards I've made at stamp camp in boxes and sometimes I will mail one if I'm in a bind with no time to stamp.

Now I am nominating seven people for this award. We can visit their blogs and learn about them.

My questions are:

1.  Do you scrapbook as well as make cards?
2.  Are you a daytime or nighttime stamper?
3.  Do you listen to music or have the TV on when you stamp?
4.  Are you a stay at home stamper or do you join others at a local place and stamp?
5.  Where do you shop for supplies (online, brick and mortar store or other)?
6.  Are most of your friends stampers?
7.  Do you craft with others in your family?

Copy and paste the Leibster Award on your blog.

Here are the rules for the nomination:
  1. Be sure to thank the blog that nominated you and be sure to link back to their blog.

  3. Nominate 11 of your favorite blogs with under 500 followers and ask your own 11 questions.

Congrats on your Liebster Blog award Brenda!! They chose the perfect person to pass this on too. I hope you are ready for this snow storm coming our way. I heard that you guys were supposed to get a foot and we are supposed to get over a foot. Just when our snow was melting too. Oh I'm so sick of snow and bitter cold!! lol Stay warm and safe! Hugs!

Hi Brenda, Congratulations on receiving Mr. Liebster. Thanks, too for nominating my blog! What a sweetheart you are. I'm so glad that our Darnell pointed me to your blog & that we are getting to 'know' each other. Your pretty cards show an amazing level of skill that is wonderful, considering how long you say you've been stamping. I've not noticed anything that wasn't straight, but then I do the same things! Probably we all do, and nobody but ourselves ever notices. I smiled at your comment re: buying supplies that you didn't know how to use! Yep, did that too! Still do. Or else forget I bought them and they get hidden in the mess. I too would love to visit the Holy City. So many places, that probably I shall not, but it's good to have a dream. I hope this current storm is not wreaking too much havoc in your area. Be careful with Molly, the coyotes and the ice! I'm off to enjoy an earlier post, which I missed. Happy Saturday, big hugs. TFS
