Good Morning, I hope you all enjoyed the hops I was in last week, I had so much fun with them!
On a sad note, My nephew Joey broke his leg in two places last night during soccer:( I will find out today if he needed surgery. Please keep him in your prayers. I am his God mother and love him very much. Here is what I made for my mom for mother's day. It's a wall hanging. She loved it and hung it in her dinning room. :)
Have a great weekend!
Your friend, Sarah

LIEBSTER Award!!! I got one!!
 I want to thank Pam Kimper at for nominating me for a LIEBSTER Award!  I'm sure she'd love a visit!

What IS the LIEBSTER Award?  I asked the same thing!  I had seen the button on a lot of blogs; but never inquired about it.
Simply put, it's an honor that gets passed around by bloggers with less than 200 followers. It's a great way for the newbie, like me, to network and meet others.
It's a way to 'Pay It Forward".  Liebe means LOVE in German!

"The real "gist" of the Liebster Award is that there is no real award. There are no judges, no special rules. No website with an official team to congratulate you and hold your hand. It's mostly what you want it to be. If you receive the award, you can 1) accept it and 2) pass it along. It's that easy." Here are the questions Pam would like me to answer:

1.  What is your favorite craft?
I love making cards!
2.  And  your favorite food?
I really like chicken dumpling soup!
3.  Dog or cat?
4.  I'm going on vacation, where would you recommend I go?
I always wanted to go to Gettysburg, PA!
5.  Who would you love to meet (past or present)?
I would love to meet Abraham Lincoln. He stayed at my family's home in Kentucky.
6.  What is your favorite song?
Amazing Grace.
7.   If you won the lottery, what's the 1st thing you would buy?!
I would pay off our debt, then buy a new house.
8.  Pepsi or Coke?
Diet caffeine free Pepsi.
9.   Are you a morning or evening person?
Morning person.
10. Why did you start a blog?
I started my blog to share the love I have for making cards, give inspiration to others and to meet and make new wonderful friends!
11.  Black or white?
I love all colors!

Thanks again to Pam for the nomination!
