Hugs and Kisses and Farewell ~ Clearly Besotted Challenge

hugsandkissesmaureenplut

Hi everyone!  I’m back today announcing the new Clearly Besotted Stamps challenge over on Stephanie’s Blog

Challenge

This month we are asked to create our own background using stamps and ink :)  I was inspired by some sweet Fancy Pants Country Boutique paper.  Here’s a card I made with that heart paper. I didn’t have any left, but I thought I could make a similar one :)  I used the new Mini Love Hearts set with the original Love Hearts, Background Builder and Many Messages sets.  Want to play along and win some fabulous stamps?  Head over to Stephanie’s blog to see what the Design Team made and then join in the fun :) 

Now, as my post title says, there is sadly a farewell part of this post.  I was desperately hoping that I would be able to stay on most of my design teams while doing my Masters, but after the first weekend of classes and getting the first syllabus of course work, I know now that it would be impossible.  I really need to give my studies my all.  I cannot thank Stephanie enough for asking me to be one of her first design team members and list my name along with some of the best in the card making business.  It is extremely hard to step away from an exciting and growing stamp company, but there is no way around it.  Luckily, I have a HUGE basket of amazing Clearly Besotted stamps and dies and will still feature them here on the blog :)  So, with many fond memories of my favourite UK peeps, Stephanie, Mandy, Aimes (Duchess!), Caryn, Debby, and Michelle, I say farewell (not goodbye) with lots of hugs and kisses :)

Thanks for stopping by :)

Aww, we are going to miss you so much Moe but you will still be part of our alumni. You will always be a part of the team. You need to give your studies the attention it needs but it is so sad at the same time. I have loved working with you and will continue to stalk your blog and creations. All the best xx

Aw Moe - that is a touching post and so sad:( We'll miss you on the team and hey, maybe when you get a break somewhere you can pop back in for the odd challenge??!!
Your card is so stunning - the background is fabulous - it looks like a vintage print!

Moe, a gorgeous card and I know it was so hard for you to step down from CBS as they are such wonderful stamps/dies, but yet knowing you made the right decision. xoxo
