Farewell to The Craft's Meow


Today is a sad day, as Lisa is announcing the closing of The Craft's Meow.  Lisa has organized present and past Design Team members and illustrators for 1 final blog hop.  It starts at The Craft's Meow Blog, where this is a listing of all the blogs participating.  Once you start hopping, you'll be directed from 1 blog to the next.

For our final blog hop, we were asked to choose our favorite stamps and make a card with them.  I looked through my stamps and chose 2 sets to make this card.  I thought the scripture would be appropriate for this occasion, and I paired it with this gorgeous flower:

TCM Farewell Blog Hop, Dec 1

supplies: TCM Beautiful Spring, Vintage Clocks, pink and green cardstock, watercolor pencils, pink pearls

The Craft's Meow Store will be closing its doors at the end of December. All stamp sets have been marked down by as much as 75%, and stock is limited.  Once a stamp set is gone, it will be gone for good, so don't wait too long to shop for your best selection.  All orders of $25.00 or more will receive a free gift with purchase, and flat-rate shipping is $3.00 for U.S. orders and $12.00 for international.  Please see The Craft's Meow blog for details, or click right over to The Craft's Meow Store to start shopping now.

I am saddened at this news, but change is a part of living.  I have loved being part of this team, getting to work with the beautiful images that our illustrators gave us, month after month, and rubbing shoulders with the other talented designers on the team.  They have taught me much!  The absence of The Craft's Meow will leave a big void in my crafting life.   I hope you'll join me in sending hugs and wishing Lisa the best in her new endeavors.

Now, hop on along to Angelica Suarez's blog.

Your card is so gorgeous and it has your Lin signature style! Your creations with TCM will be missed for sure. However, I am sure that your creativity will continue and other DT opportunities will find you! HUGS!

That is really sad news Lin, but I am so happy that you used one of my favourite TCM images on your card today! Beautiful in pink!

Beautiful card, Lin! What news, I'm sorry to hear it. With your talent, I doubt there will be a void for long - TCM will always have a special place in your heart though, I'm sure.

Lin, as always, your card is perfection! Yes, there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven, and I thank God for the time I've had with TCM. I've been blessed in so many ways, and you are one of the biggest blessings! It's been a pleasure getting to know you and work with you. Thank you so much for not only the beautiful cards you always made, but for always being right on time (actually, ahead of the game) and helping me with the Gallery and Pinterest. You were an integral part of keeping TCM going, and for that I will always be grateful. Plus, you're just the sweetest person to know! I'm sending you lots of love and hugs across the miles. I hope we'll always keep in touch. Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart. Lisa

Such a pretty card Lin. It is sad that TCM is closing. They do have some beautiful stamps.

Oh that is sad news indeed, Lin. I think your choice of Scripture verse is just perfect. Everything happens according to His will. I absolutely love this card.
