Sunday Sketch & Stamp #29: My Farewell!

Happy Sunday everyone!  Hope you're enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend (UK) and Memorial Day weekend (USA).

Today is a bit of a sad day for me as it's my very last challenge as a DT member over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp! I have loved every minute of being on the SS&S DT since it started over a year ago, but I've decided to step down for no other reason than I think it's my time. I have a couple of new ventures in the pipeline - crafting and non-crafting - and I'm excited to be able to share these with you soon!

So I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to my wonderful teamies over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp - you are the best girls, and I shall miss you all more than you will know!  Plus I would like to say a special thank you to Maggie, our challenge leader - thank you Maggie for your belief in me, for inviting me onto the SS&S DT at the beginning, and for all your encouragement, support and friendship.

In addition to today being my very last SS&S challenge as a DT member, it's also my turn to set the sketch this fortnight, which I thought was very appropriate:

As you can see I turned my sketch 90 degrees to the left, swapped the rectangle for an oval and omitted the sentiment, LOL!  I used one of my Miss Anyas - quite fitting as I also used a Miss Anya stamp for my first SS&S DT card way back in April 2009!  I used some papers from my Cosmo Cricket 'Early Bird' mini deck (my fave CC pad!), and also pulled out my one and only MS 'deep' border punch.  I used a couple of colours of Coredinations Colorcore card (Cardinal and French Roast), some very thin red satin ribbon, a few olive green 4mm flatback pearls and ... voila!  I spent ages fiddling with flowers, but nothing looked right and I really didn't want to cover up that gorgeous DP!

So that's it for now folks!  Thanks for popping by! 

Be sure to come back in a few days time on 1st June when I'll have 2 posts in one day!  Whimsy Stamps are releasing some brand new digi stamps on 1st June and we are having another blog hop and challenge to celebrate!  Plus there will be another crafty celebration that day, but I can't tell you what it is yet, LOL!  Then on 2nd, 5th and 8th June we have some fab new releases at Your Next Stamp!  Phew! The beginning of June is shaping up to be a very busy time!

Have a great rest of your weekend!
