Last Caardvarks post - Clear and Simple Stamps

For Scrap-Mart Blog Hop scroll down!

Today Caardvarks is releasing it's last challenge.  Yes, you read it right, it is our last challenge, and I bring this to you with a very heavy heart, just as it was a hard decision for Jenyfur to make as well.  I am so grateful that I got to be part of this amazing 4 years journey, well, the last year for me.  I got to design along with some AMAZING designers, and we were sponsored by the most AMAZING manufacturers!  I want to THANK Jenyfur for her continuous hard work on organizing each challenge, I know it had to be a lot of work and also for the opportunities for us to play and create with all the fabulous products.  

I have to say this past year has been such a fun year, so many opportunities came to me personally because I was on the Caardvarks team.  And I thought I would recollect them here in this bittersweet post.

In May of this year a huge dream of mine came true, and I got to guest design for JustRite Stampers, I really adore their stamps and love Sharon and Kellie.  I am looking forward to working with them in the future as well!

In June I was given an opportunity by sweet Nicki of Clear and Simple Stamps to be on her IPhone App Design Team, which I took happily and it has been such a pleasure to design for and work with Nicki!

In October I won a Guest Design spot on the My Favorite Things Stamps Co. and that was because I fell in love with their stamps after their sponsorship and it is a continuously growing love affair and that is all I can say for that right now...LOL

As you can see, I AM VERY GRATEFUL!!!!!  I can honestly say, Caardvarks has been the most fun design team, as we got to play with different style companies and it was a great challenge every time to see what fits my style most and I thoroughly enjoyed taking those challenges on!

So, with all this said, I bring you my last Caardvarks challenge card, which is sponsored by again the fabulous Clear and Simple Stamps Co and we are making monochromatic cards.  They are announcing their COLOR STORY products, which include high quality matching card stock, ribbons, buttons, ink and Copic markers, along with their fabulously designed stamps!  I have to say, I really, really love their products!!!  For my card I picked the Dare to be a Diva Red color story. The pretty stamp set I worked with is called Fancy Wishes.  Check them out, I know you will find lots of pretty things you might find that you just NEED...LOL

Well, that is it for me today.  Thank you again Jenyfur for letting me be part of your amazing Design Team!  Now, if you haven't been to Caardvarks yet, run over and check out the fun challenge we have for you and it will be up all month, so this time you have a whole month to create and have a chance to win a Gift Certificate to Clear and Simple Stamp!

Have a fabulous day!
