Farewell Blog Hop

This is a very special farewell blog hop to honor The Craft's Meow

You should have arrived to my blog from the amazingly talented Karen Baker. If not, please start at the beginning of the hop over at The Craft's Meow blog where you will also find a list of all of the designers, past and present, that are participating today. 

Lisa has made a very difficult decision to close The Craft's Meow store at the end of December. Although I am very sad about this, I completely understand and truly admire Lisa for letting God lead her and her family in another direction. 
Jeremiah 29:11 "I know the plans I have for you, I want you to enjoy success. I do not plan to harm you. I will give you hope for the years to come."

Lisa, my sweet friend, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me be a part of The Craft's Meow. Working for you and being a part of this amazing DT has been an experience I will always cherish! 

I have two cards to share today. My first card uses Stitched Flowers and Love Dwells Here.
The flower is from Stitched Flowers and is colored with copics. I fussy cut the flower and adhered it on top of an embossed banner.  The sentiment tag is from Love Dwells Here
I used lace, baker's twine and buttons for my embellishments. 

Here is a close up of the flower. 
The little bingo card was cut out from the pattern paper which is Simple Stories Vintage Bliss. Keeping with the button theme for the flower, I added a tiny button to the center of the bingo card.

My next card uses Beautiful Hymns and Beautiful Spring
The butterfly is from Beautiful Spring and is colored with copics. I added black rhinestones to the body and rhinestone flourishes for the flight path. 
Once again I used lace, twine, and a button for embellishments along with ribbon.  

The sentiment is from Beautiful Hymns and is stamped on pattern paper which is also from Simple Stories Vintage Bliss. 

Before I send you on your way, here are some details about the clearance sale.

Both cards are lovely. I like how the embossing adds a quilted feel to the first card. I love the butterfly on the second card. Excellent colors, paper choices and layouts on both cards.

Sharri, such beautiful cards, as always, from such a beautiful person! Thank you so much for designing for me. You have been a true pleasure to have on the team. I will miss you and TCM so much, but hopefully we'll stay in touch, even if only through FB. :)

Great minds think alike... that was the same scripture I quoted in my farewell post. I absolutely believe in God's word and trust His leading! All is well.

Hugs, Lisa
