The 2008-2009 FCD design team says good-bye!

This is my last blog hop for the current FCD design team. A new team will soon take the helm. I have had a great year of learning and creating with FCD and have made some great friends! I am excited that we now get to be fans and collaborate with other past DT members. Woo Hoo! More ideas and art to see! Pamela has been a phenomenal lady to get to know and work with. Thank you so very much! I can't wait to meet you in person!

Remember these hops are roundy bouts so wherever you start is where you will end easy to remember that way! Each blog will link you to the next one in the circle and be sure to leave a comment for everyone as no one knows who the mystery hostess is where the candy winner will be chosen from! Besides you are going to see so much fabulous art you will want to tell everyone how wonderful and eye catching it is! LOL The blog hop ends on August 31, 2009 at which time Pamela will choose a winner and announce it on her blog.

I choose to use this cute girl from the Sweet Child of Mine set as my farewell. I have learned from this team that is ok to lean on others when you need to so inside it says just that

Lean on Me...

Thanks ladies for letting me lean and learn from you all this past year! I hope you know I am here for you too whenever you need a leaning post!


This background was made using the AI Foil technique from Technique Junkies and then I ran it through my cuttlebug! I love how it mimics a tree base she is leaning on. Coloring done with Copics and added some cool floral ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

One more surprise for this hop!

"Pam has decided to have a Scavenger hunt for a 25% off on your entire order (excluding magazine orders please), coupon code!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your letter from my blog is O.
Once you've gone all the way around, you'll have all the letters for the code.
To unscramble them, put them in order, starting with Pam's blog.
(Follow the links from there, to get the correct order for the letters.)"
The code is good from the hop start (Aug 29, 2009 11 AM through Aug 31, 2009 8 PM)

Last time Libby linked to me and had you say hi so this time since I am linking to her this round let's all return the favor and make her day!

hugs,
