This will be my final post as a SR. DT member of Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps and as a team member for FOSTV. It has been awesome working with all these wonderful ladies. What a great team and company! Sometimes you just have to give up something you enjoy when life pulls you away. And, it is that time for me. I'm sure I'll be checking in on these girls at Home of Speedy TV.

My card is also to honor the Queen for the Day #132 on SCS, Polly aka peeps321.

Gorgeous card!!! The black flourish behind the image adds such elegance! I love the music paper!!! Ooh La La! So pretty!

Your card looks great with those tilted panels, and I just love the sheet music. I;m sorry you're leaving your DT position, but I understand why, as I had to do the same thing myself. It was great seeing what you've been doing with all those MFP stamps, and I hope you're not going too far away :)

This is gorgeous, Brenda! Wow, I'm speechless and in awe! I know you will be missed on the design team! You are exiting at the top!

I just accepted a job today at Michael's on Airport Rd. The store has not actually opened yet. Supposed to open the middle of October. This will be my first time to work for a paycheck in over 21 years...yikes! I thought it might be a fun place to work and I get a discount. Who knows, they just might have an elephant.

Sarah Mae said...

I love how the birds are stamped on the music paper!
