A Few of My Favorite Things...

This is a weekend of farewells.  Yesterday was my last post for Dynamic Duos and today I say goodbye to the Sweet 'n Sassy Design Team.

I have had the honor and joy of serving on the Sweet 'n Sassy Design Team for the past year but, very sadly, this is my last official day.  As we all know, life often has surprising and exciting new plans for us and with the changes in my life, I simply do not have the time to give my Sweet 'n Sassy cards the focus that they deserve.

I love Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and wanted to give you a few samples of what I so love.

First, Rhubarb and Cocoa...two of my favorite  characters!!  Here's Rhubarb all dressed up for Christmas!!  Cocoa is an absolutely charming mouse with his own line of stamps.

Rhubarb's Christmas

Second, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps do cute well, but they also have a variety of lovely and elegant stamps.   (Thanks to my friend Kris for this color/layout inspiration.)

Harvest of Blessings

Third...Christian stamps!!  Many of their stamps are beautiful enough to stand alone.  There are also a large array of gorgeous florals and birds and wedding and baby sets and more, each of which includes Christian sentiments.

You really are going to be missed by both teams. Your creations are always right on and inspiring. These are no different. I actually love the teddy bear one for my sketch best--so clean and cute. Thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge this week! All of your cards samples are fabulous!

Vicky Hayes said...

Wonderful cards Kim and I know that the DTs are really going to miss you. I know exactly what you mean about life often being surprising and I wish you well in dealing with your surprises!

Pauline said...

Three gorgeous cards Kim, I love the embossed detail on your last card, the elegant collage image on your second and the cute little teddy on the first! All so gorgeous and different in style!

I too had to make the decision to step down from the SNSS digi team, and it wasn't easy, but priorities constantly rearrange your life for you. Cocoa was my favorite image to color then, and still is today. Your Rhubarb card is adorable, and I love the polka dot heart accent on your blessings beauty. The scripture card is just gorgeous with that embossing surrounding the text! I hope we'll still continue to see cards from you :)

Bonnie said...

Each of these is so unique and special! Sweet and Sassy will miss you I'm sure!

Doris said...

Your last card for this post is outstanding, Kim. I really like the colors, dsp and textures you chose, as well as the way you mounted everything on the card. Beautiful!
