A Bittersweet Day

Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well on this lovely Wednesday! Today's post is a little bittersweet for me because it is my last official post as a member of the Getting Cricky Design Team. As much as I have LOVED these last 5 months, I have decided to withdraw my name from consideration for the next DT term. This was my first design team experience & I have learned so much! I truly cherish the relationships I have developed with my DT sisters & I appreciate & admire each of them so very much. What a talented & special group of ladies!

Okay, before I get too emotional, let's move on to today's projects, lol. I am a featured DT member again today at Getting Cricky, along with the awesomely talented Lisa from A Mermaid's Crafts. If you haven't already, give yourself a real treat & check out her blog. She is truly one of the most brilliant crafters I've ever seen.

I have 2 projects to share with you - this card is new & the second card is a "flashback" from an earlier post....

SIZE:  5.25" square
PAPER:  from my scraps (mostly Core'dinations)
PUNCHMartha Stewart
INKTim Holtz Distress Ink "Black Soot", VersaMagic Chalk Ink "Pixie Dust"
