My Creative Time ~ "Farewell Blog Hop"

Hello everyone!  And welcome to the My Creative Time ~ Design Team FAREWELL BLOG HOP.  You should have arrived here from Teri Beri's blog.  If not, then make sure you head back to My Creative Time so that you can start at the beginning with Emma.

Before we get to my project, I just wanted to take a minute to say THANK YOU to Miss Emma.  You were my original inspiration for starting my blog.  Your "Throwback Thursday Challenge" was the first contest I ever entered and also the first contest I ever won.  Being on your Design Team was a dream come true and it has been a WONDERFUL experience.  Thank you so much for everything! 

I also want to take a minute and say THANK YOU to all of my Design Team sisters.  You have all been such an inspiration and we have shared some AMAZING times and more than a few good laughs.  And most of all, I have made some friendships that I know I will treasure for a lifetime so thank you all for that.

Finally, I want to say THANK YOU to all of YOU.  I will never be able to put into words what a wonderful experience having a blog has been and that is because of all of YOU.  Your comments mean the world to me and have made me smile even on the worst of days.  While my time on the My Creative Time Design Team has come to an end, my crafting journey will continue.  I'm excited to see what the new year has in store and I hope you will all continue to visit my blog and say Hi. 

Ok, enough of the sappy stuff lol...let's get back to my project for the day.  Rainbows anyone???  :) 


For my project today, I decided to make these fun little cards for each of the Design Team members.  And of course I had to use my favorite rainbow colors.  The pretty patterned paper is from the Coredinations ~ Flower collection.  I cut the card using the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die & More and then just folded that in half.  To decorate the front, I cut the oval using the MCT ~ Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies.  The cute little girls and heart are from the MCT ~ We Are Family.  And the sentiment is from the MCT ~ Treasured Moments.  I added a little bow with some hemp twine.  And on the inside is a special little treat for each one of them.  Super simple and easy to reproduce.

*****GIVEAWAY ALERT*****
For our giveaway today, EACH ONE OF US is giving away a $15 Gift Card to the My Creative Time store!  All you have to do is leave a comment at EACH stop in order to qualify to win.  Don't forget to leave a way for us to contact you if YOU are the lucky winner.  You will have until Sunday, December 21, 2014 at 5pm PST to leave your comments.  Emma will have all the winners on her blog on Monday, December 22, 2014.
**************************
Ok everyone, your next stop on the hop is the super talented Miss Shar.  But in case you get lost along the way - here is the entire lineup:

Cassandra (that's me!)

Well my creative friends, that's it for me today.  Thanks again to Miss Emma, my Design Team sisters and to all of you.  I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season.  I will see you all again soon.
