Aloha and Sad News....

My mom asked for some cards that were all very similar, so she wouldn't have such a hard time choosing which ones to send.  And no lumps, to avoid extra postage.  I came up with this simple, easily reproducible design that I can make in a variety of colors for her.  I used the new Summertime Celebration set from Lizzie Anne Designs for this card.  I know it looks plain - the pic is terrible! But it's better on my desk, I promise ;)

And now for some sad news....I'm copying this directly from the Lizzie Anne blog, so I can be sure to give you all the correct deets. And I share a little about my thoughts on it after their note, so keep reading.

I've shed some tears over this news this week! I have loved every minute of the THREE years I have served on their Design Team, and my Lizzie Anne stamps will always be a huge part of my life. I cannot thank Tricia and Meridith for the wonderful opportunity they gave to me (did you know they were my first design team??), and I truly don't know what I'm going to do without this team!

Don't worry, you'll still be seeing tons of samples from me using Lizzie Anne Designs stamps!

Aw sweetie, what a day you had yesterday. I read this this morning as I subscribe to their newsletter. It is sad. Hugs to you and love you!

Darling card, Taylor. . .and I don't think it looks plain particularly considering the operational parameters you were given! Thanks for the heads on Lizzie Anne Designs. I've been looking at their darling images, and if I'm going to get some, I'd best get 'er done. I do pray they have success in their other ventures.

Beautiful card, such sad news about Lizzie Anne Designs; you've created such beautiful cards with their stamps, it a shame there won't be any new stamps.
