all good things…

Well all good things must come to an end. I’ve been so honored to be part of the Avocado Arts Design Team since their beginning over a year ago. It’s been, well, wonderful. I love their stamps, the design team, the people that make up the company. It’s one of the rare teams where we’ve shared friendships, laughs, prayers and tears. And that’s what makes it oh so hard to say goodbye.

So why am I saying goodbye? Priorities. They are important things. It’s so hard to balance them in any life and over the past while, I’ve been a little overwhelmed. OK. A lot.  I’m hoping with a few less deadlines on my plate to find some more time for my family and myself. Simplifying is a good thing.

Today’s card is another masculine design. It would be easy to change it up with some lighter colors to make it a girl card. I’m seriously loving this tree stamp. The leaves look just like word bubbles. You could totally cut them out and use them that way on a design. Fun! Today I’ve stamped sentiments into the “leaf bunches”. They are stamped on some text patterned paper and then sponged with Crushed Olive Distress Ink to get that lovely green.

Well…with this card brings my last blog share with the Avocado Arts team.

Here’s some of those very talented ladies with some more inspiring projects using this set…

While today brings the  last day for me on the team, Kimberly Crawford is also stepping down today as well. Best wishes to you Kimberly!
Lastly, June 1st means it’s Avocado Arts first  anniversary. Congrats to AA! It’s been so exciting to watch you grow this past year and many thanks for allowing me to be a very small part of it. I have been so honored to be part of the team.
Make sure you stop by Avocado Arts today for lots of exciting news and a celebration!


Happy June!
