Hi there friends! Today's post for Connie & Mary is bittersweet as it is my last post on the Design Team. I am sad to say goodbye but find it difficult to keep up with the team and everything else in our busy lives! Ironically, my 3 year blogoversary was this week and when I reflect on these 3 years I am so thankful for the friends I've made and opportunities that opened through sharing what I love. Opportunities like Create with Connie & Mary and all their fabulous challenges...so...wanna see what they have for us this week?
It's a sketch! Isn't it a great one?! So unique--love the banner and the repeated greeting. My card is a thank you to Connie & Mary for all the hard work and inspiration they provide to us each week:
When I started this blog, I imagined that my Mom would be my only follower. :-) I never imagined that anyone else would find my cards inspiring. I dreamed that someday I might be on a Design Team. When the dream became reality, I found how inspiring it can be to share my creations with others. Inspiring to make new crafting friends, learn from their
creativity and participate in challenges that stretch my imagination. I find inspiration everywhere, truly, and yes, I even dream about cards!So...thank you, to my fabulous friends on the Design Team for your support and encouragement. Your comments brighten every week and bring a smile to my face! Be sure to check out their work over at Create with Connie & Mary. Most of all...thank you, Connie & Mary....for giving me an opportunity that 3 years ago I couldn't even imagine. You believed in me when I wasn't even sure I believed in myself....
