Good morning my sweet friends & welcome to our "Farewell Blog Hop".
Today is a "bittersweet" day for us here at My Creative Time. I have mentioned earlier this month that there were going to be some changes for the new year & this is one of them.
Having 18 design team members has gotten to be sooo much for me. My goal for the new year is to have a smaller team & that means letting some team members go :( I have tried to make a video for this blog hop at least 3 times & just could not do it. It was too emotional for me because this was the hardest decision I had to make. Unfortunately this is why there is no video for you today :(
Some of these ladies have been w/me since the beginning & I consider us family here at MCT. So this post is going be hard to get through :'( I decided not to do another design team call because that is a lot of work & I am really busy with my boys right now. These ladies that are part of this blog hop today will NOT be gone forever! They are a part of my new "Alumni Team!" This means they will guest design for me sporadically throughout the year & they will also be part of a few blog hops! These ladies are AMAZINGLY TALENTED & I KNOW they will be picked up by other design teams asap! So hopefully their new teams will let them do the guest spots for me. "My Creative Time" would NOT be the same without them! If I could keep ALL 18 members, I TOTALLY would, but unfortunately, I can't. So I thought having this "Alumni Team" would be GREAT!
For this hop, I thought the theme should be a "Friendship" theme which is very fitting for this hop.
Here is my card I created! I wanted to do some watercoloring for it & I love the way it came out. I thought having the butterflies hang off the card would look pretty. Since I used soft colors for the watercoloring, I thought this card needed some vellum butterflies layered on top of the yellow & turquoise butterflies to soften the card. To add a little something extra, I used my fun stitched edge die for the scallop edge.
Here is the inside of the card:
