Hello my friends. Today I'm sharing with you my final Design Team card with Stamp, Ink, Paper. What a fabulous group of people they have been and I'm so glad they gave me the chance to be on their team! I'm truly going to miss you Justin, Andrea and Tina!!
What I have realized in the last four or so years is that Design Team participation is hard work. It requires planning, scheduling, commitments, visiting and commenting on websites and dreaded deadlines - not things you necessarily think about when you are in your craft room, binge-watching Grey's Anatomy and stamping like a madwoman. Somewhere along the way, my hobby became more work and I lost the simple joys it used to bring. So, it is with careful consideration that I have resigned from all Design Teams effective July 1.
What this means for you is nothing. . . You will still see great cards and projects, crafty ideas and more - only I hope they will be even better!! But, more importantly, what this means for me is stress-free card making, perhaps a little more time on my hands, and, getting back to crafting because I WANT to
and not simply because I HAVE to.
I'm already really looking forward to having creative freedom again. I'll be making the cards I want, using the products I want and on my own schedule. My goal is to re-discover the joy of cardmaking and I know I will!
Here is the challenge banner that inspired my card:
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
