Hi Nut!

     This is my second sad post.  If you remember last week I mentioned I was leaving a second team besides ADFD.  I've been with The Kraft Journal challenge since it first started and it has been such a wonderful experience.  Our DT Coordinator, Beth Moore, is a dream to work with and I've met so many great designers as the roster changed.  Babette Switzer's wonderful products have been so much fun to work with and her kraft cardstocks can be found on almost every card I make.  I will really miss designing for this team.    Here's sending a huge thank you to Beth and Babette!
     So here are the deets for my final posting for TKJ.  I started with a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock matted with Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock and designer papers.  The sketch I used was this week's Flutterby Wednesday.  You need to use a butterfly or fairy for their challenge so this little guy doesn't qualify even if he were a flying squirrel.  LOL  The image is from Whimsy and Stars Studio and is colored with Copics.  I wrapped the panels with 7 Gypsies Gypsy Market Seam Binding and added a tag with a handwritten sentiment and a little acorn stamp from one of my There She Goes Clear Stamp sets.
     I hope you'll continue to drop by TKJ and play along with the challenges.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Celebrate the Occasion--fall
Kaboodle Doodles--fall themed items
Ribbon Girls--October color challenge
2 Sisters--Halloween or fall colors
My Sheri Crafts--fall
Wags 'n Whiskers--fall colors

     Have a fantastic Monday and to those of you in the path of Sandy--STAY SAFE!

  8. It was a really tough decision for me to leave the Kraft Journal, too, so I know what you're going through. Love those products and loved this team. I know they are going to miss you like crazy, but I understand needing to step back a bit from time to time. Your last card is amazing. Your coloring skills are mad, Girl, mad! And look at all those layers! SO awesome!

  18. hey there, Tracy! well I must begin by telling you that your card and the others before it are as cute and wonderful as they always are. you add so many fabulous details that I can get lost for hours gazing at all of the love your pour into everything you make.

    for that reason I know without a doubt you are going to be missed terribly by the teams you are leaving. at the same time I understand the reasons behind your withdrawals. you MUST craft for the fun and enjoyment first and foremost. if that goes, then it becomes drudgery, and that defeats the purpose.

    do what you need to in order to keep YOU filled with the joy you need. I'm here for you, dear friend, as I am able. :)

    sending you hugs!

  19. I just love to see that you put so much of yourself into all you do! Such attention to detail and such style you have!
    I'm glad that you are choosing to continue to love crafting and not just following through on commitments.
    May you have many hours of pure enjoyment ahead of you!

  28. Hey sweetheart, I think you will be definitely missed in both DTs but I can understand your decision. It's better to do something with desire, and not because you are under pressure.
    Speaking of your card – I love this cute squirrel and you did an excellent job by coloring the fur.
    Big hugs, Anja
