So Thankful 4 U....

Hello All, it is with mixed emotions that I make my post for today as it will be my last one as part of the design team at Sugar Creek Hollow where I have had the pleasure of designing for the past two years. I have loved working with some wonderful ladies and visiting with some very talented bloggers.
With that in mind, I created my card today with each of you in mind to thank you for all of your visits and kind words through out my term.

The challenge this week at SCH is to use Numbers and Letters and of course as always in a vintage shabby chic style.

Aren't these papers from  My Mind's Eye's paper pad "Bramble Rose" lovely? I layered one of these on black card stock on my green card base using some of the MME paper and the green to create an
awning....I used a Martha Stewart punch and then foam pads to create some dimension.
I hope you like the look of the Spellbinders Elegant post as much as I do. Using a definition from Stampin' Up's set "Define Life" and a small pink rose stamp I created my sign. The 4 and U are cut from Cuttlebug's Olivia set.

My card hopefully conveys to you the gratitude that I have for each of you!
I wish only the best for our challenge blog at Sugar Creek Hollow and hope you will continue to support and play along as I will from time to time. I am stepping down so that I can take a break for a bit from working on any design teams. I hope to play in a few more challenges and to get some projects accomplished around the house this spring.
Sugar Creek Hollow has and always will have a special spot in my heart.

We are welcoming three new team members and I hope you will give them a warm welcome.

They will offer some new inspiration and I look forward to seeing their work for SCH.

Along with me, the fabulous Heather Hudson is also stepping down but stayed tune for next week for a surprise with her....but you didn't hear anything here, lol.

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend and only the best always.

Hi kid-oh! What a beauty you created! You were such a wonderful inspiration in me learning to do vintage. I was over the moon thrilled when Tracy asked me onto the team and I got to be your team mate. You helped build Sugar Creek Hollow and will be missed....but we all move on. You deserve your break...enjoy and see ya soon (-:

Gosh I just love this..esp the way you did the sentiment, and the paper has given me some ideas for paper that's not quite right for cards. Thanks for the great inspiration!!
