City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 154 ~ Happy Birthday and Blog Hop

I don't really have the push to get into my craft room after the vacation, good thing that I get all my work done before I leave, other wise, this post would be blank today! : (

Well, today's post is all about City Crafter Challenge Blog, can you believe that we are turning THREE this week? Yes, I know right, how time flies....

Happy Birthday to City Crafter Challenge Blog

source

For the past three years, with the help my amazing team, City Crafter Challenge Blog had become a fun place for us and many.... I can't thank enough to my team mates, past and present....

Today is especially sad also because one of my best team mate (from the beginning of our challenge blog) and dear friend Linda, is leaving us.... this is Linda's last challenge with us at City Crafter, she is on to her new phrase of her life, beginning her amazing journey (I'll let her tell you about it, check out her blog regularly). 

I found Linda online through her blog My Happy Place when I was looking for DT for CCCB 3 years ago. I was living in New York City at that time, soon after I moved to Las Vegas, we finally met up in person, here's our first meeting - June 25, 2010


Linda, I am going to miss you dearly, you are such a sweet soul and great friend. I know I will miss our lovely lunches together, and the fun dinner get-together, all 4 of us... hearing your amazing stories of your camping trips.... do keep us update on what's going on in your life every now and then... (sop sop....) I wish you and Bruce all the best on your new journey! Please stop by City Crafter once in a while to say hello, I know everyone there will miss you as well.

Lovely card....simple yet elegant. I think some of the appeal is the colour of the card, which really catches the eye.

Happy third birthday for CCCB Kirsty! I may not always get to play but I've tuned in every week almost since the very beginning. Your challenge is one I can always count on for fairness and lots of wonderful encouragement from the DT. I'm really going to miss Linda, but I know you've picked a wonderful new member for your team. Cheers to lots more fun at CCCB! Your card is wonderful! Washi tape, stamping, and butterflies. Who could ask for more!

It's so hard to meet a friend and then lose them but I'm sure you'll be in touch with each other; although that's just not the same.

Stacy said...

Clean and simple card, I love it!! Is that some of that "washi tape" stuff I keep hearing about? I like the design on it!

Shahrul Niza said...

I missed Linda, already :). How amazing that she'd get to see all these places in her travels :). Your butterfly card makes me smile, so pretty. I think the typewriter font & butterfly work wonders :).

kateri said...

I really like this card. I particulaly like the stamp with the words on it, because it adds so much to your card.

What company makes that stamp? I love it. You could put it on just about any card for any occasion. Thank you for sharing and if you have time (you sound super busy) could you give me a heads up on what company makes that stamp. Thanks so much and I hope you have a happy, peaceful and creative day. --Kateri Cochran
