Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge #31 Handmade Embellishments. And an announcement.

Happi Sister Starla, set us the challenge this week to make our own embellishments. Those who know me will already know that's something I love to do. I used Girl With Basket, and instead of DP's I used Daisy Days (part of a set of images) as my background - available at the store. I've a sheet of embossed card (Tim Holtz) and my handmade is a quilled flower. 

I'm sad to say it looks as if I've not coloured her skin at all, I used putty and ivory promarkers and vanilla as her blush for her cheeks and little knee''ll just have to use your imagination.
 Flower close up. 
Please pop to the challenge and join us this week, we'd love to see your handmades too. You don't need to use a Happileigh Scrappin' image to enter, but if you do you get two entries for the prize draw. Additionally, those using a Happileigh image will be entered into a separate prize draw. 

Now for the Announcement 
This is my last ever post, due to health issues and other circumstances I've leaving blogland. I have to say I've enjoyed my few months entering challenges and being part of Design Teams, and in particular being part of Feline Playful. Life happens though doesn't it, and 'a girls gotta do' and all that. 

Byebye and take care,
 to all my Blogfriends.

Linda, I completely understand your reason for leaving the DT. Such a shame but as I said, real life and your health are much more important.

This is a beautiful card to have finished on, such happy colours.

I truly wish you all the very best.

Lots of love Mandy xxx

I am going to miss you in Blogland more than you will ever know. We've done a lot together and I'm so sorry your health (and your familie's) is making life rather miserable right now. I do hope you will feel an improvement soon, I sure hate to see my dear friends suffering in any way.
I am definitely keeping you close in my thoughts and prayers.
I miss you already but do hope we can still keep up with eachother through email.
Your card is very cute, I will miss that too, you always inspire me with your creativity and good humor.
LOve you!

Kirsty said...

How sad, and just as we had begun to work together --- but you must take care of yourself so you can jump right back in --- perhaps with not as much gusto, but in nonetheless!

Sheree said...

Oh Linda.... I am going to miss you! I've really enjoyed checking out your designs and those lovely medallions you draw!
You'll always be thought of and hope you say a quick hi once in a while!
Take care of yourself Linda! You are number one now but there are lots of us right behind you backing you up.

Amanda R said...

Best of luck and please know you will always be welcomed back with open arms. Hope your health issues improve!

Linda, I'm so sorry to hear that you are having problems, I'll miss you. Maybe one day you'll be able to come back, or at least pop by our blogs and visit us once in a while. As enjoyable as blogging and card making is, it certainly is not the most important thing in life, and we have to put the more important things first. Take good care of yourself and your family. It's been a pleasure getting to know you.
Warm Luv, Babs.
