DS105: Bit of Stardust....and a farewell

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Hi everyone!

Sorry I've been so quiet lately. I've been a little swamped with end-of-year things at my daughter's school and we had Spring baseball all month long. It just wiped me out!

But I'm back today with another card for this week's Deconstructed Sketch Challenge #105!


I think you're going to love this sketch! It's got lots of great elements and you know it's got to be good when it was sketched by design team member Sheri Gilson!! Jen's been busy moving house, so some of the girls have stepped in to help her out with the sketches....aren't they a nice bunch?! :)

For my card, I used one of my favorite There She Goes' sets, Bit Of Stardust, because I love this expression! The papers are from MME's Sunshine paper pad, buttons from PTI (kraft) and some yummy bias binding ribbon.

Here's what this week's sketch looks like:

Now for the sad part....unfortunately, I've had to make the hard decision to step down from the Deconstructed Sketch design team AND my beloved There She Goes design team. :( I thought I had a little bit more time than I did, but we found out a few weeks ago that my daughter has to attend summer school to improve on her grammar and comprehension skills. She's only in 2nd grade, but we don't want her falling behind already, so I made a promise to myself to help her as much as I can this summer to get her where she needs to be for 3rd grade.

The other reason is that I have to eventually give up my craft room for....the little baby that we're expecting in December!! Yes, we're finally getting that second child I've been wishing for for years now! We're SO excited to be having another little one in the house that I'm not too cut up about giving up the only spare room in the house (the craft room) to them. The bit I hate is having to say goodbye to the nicest group of girls I've ever had the pleasure working with! I've been designing for TSG for almost 4 years now and I as going to miss them so much! And the Deconstructed Sketch girls are just a fantastic group of ladies....*sigh*

I also want to thank everyone who's followed my little blog and supported me with over the years. The only reason I've kept my blog going this long is because of you all and all the sweet comments you leave me. I plan on leaving my blog up, just in case things aren't as chaotic as I envision them being after the baby is born and I find some extra time somewhere to make a project or two to share with you all. Never say never, right?? :)

All my hugs, Sandra
