A fond farewell

Hi everyone!  Well, I have a fond farewell to announce today.  I have stepped down from Gina K Designs design team.  If you've followed my blog for awhile you know that I've been designing with Gina for over 3 1/2 years.  I have loved each and every moment with Gina, her illustrators and wonderful team.  Gina is the complete package.  She's talented, generous, kind and a wonderful person to everyone around her, including all her customers!

I thought I would say goodbye by posting a few favorite cards I designed over the years.  Some of these use retired or rubber sets (which have temporarily been removed from the site due to production issues), but I'll link what I can.

I'll start with some of my older cards.  I made this one a few years ago when I was in my "wrinkled seam binding" phase.
This one uses the cutest frog and mushroom images from an older kit.
Here is a quick and easy card perfect for any tween boy.
A few of my more recent favorites include this baby card using Lovely Ladybug.
 Here is a mini card trio using the set Simple Hearts.
This one uses the delightful Year of Flowers 2 set.
Last but not least, here are a couple cards that were published.  This one appeared in Paper Crafts Magazine, Card Creations in 2011.
 This one appeared in Paper Creations in 2010.
and lastly here is my VERY FIRST published card using Gina's images was this Christmas card which also appeared in Paper Creations back in 2009!
Stay tuned, I have another post coming up that will highlight each of Gina's illustrators and some of my favorite cards using their sets.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
