City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 447 ~ Floral Laura

This week is our final week at City Crafter Challenge Blog, I am feeling a little sad as well as relief.... I am sad because it has been nearly 9 years, CCCB was my baby, I started it when I first moved to Las Vegas, through the blog, I met many friends, some has became really close, but life is tough, I have been going through a lot lately, especially the past few months, I think it is time for me to learn how to let go, I don't have much time to craft but I will try my best to make something once in a while,  I hope..... I have been selling some of my crafting stuff lately simply because I see no reason to hoard time since I don't use them anymore, so..... for my final card for City Crafter Challenge Blog....


the floral background stamps as well as the map stamp, sentiment stamp are all products of Papertrey Ink....



I hope you hop over to City Crafter Challenge Blog and join in the fun!

Change is always hard, but good for you realizing you need to let go. I hope you can still work in some crafting time if it brings you joy. Lovely card to finish 9 great years, Kirsty! So glad I got to "know" you because of CCCB! Sending hugs, Greta PS--Even if you don't have time to make a card, you could always share a Papi photo with us!

Kirsty, this is beautiful!! So sorry to hear that you're parting ways, but it's so important to step back and listen to your heart! I hope whatever comes next fills your heart with heaps of joy and that you still find time to be creative if it brings you happiness! Big hugs and thank you so much for your comments and visits! xo

Awww, I know it's got to be bittersweet to let go of your challenge blog after all these years! And I'm really sorry to hear that you've been going through some hard times! I've been really behind on my blog visits since getting the puppy right after Christmas, and I'm sorry I haven't been able to pop by. I do hope you'll have a chance to keep up with a bit of crafting, and post when you can. I'm not finding much time for that these days, either. So I totally understand! Many hugs to you, my friend! This card is beautiful! <3

Wishing you all the best, Kirsty, and I hope that as your close this door, new adventures that bring fulfillment will be there to greet you. Sometimes life is more than difficult, but always, I have found, that there is something new that can be explored, regardless of our circumstances. Wishing you lots of love and happiness, hugs, de

Wow Kirsty Im sorry to see you closing but I sure understand. Life is sometimes hard and you do have to take a step back. I havent been blogging much either. My hubbys alzheimer has gotten so much worse and Im having to do more and more so time is a precious commodity these days. I love your card as always you have a flair for combining elements!! Hope you pop in time to time to say hi :) hugs to you and I hope things get better for you!

Your final card for CCCB is a beautiful one, and I hope you'll find the time and motivation to keep crafting, even if not so much. I have enjoyed every second of my time on the CCCB team- I'm sad to see it close but recognise that even good things don't always last forever. Thank you for the kind words left on my blog and for the support and friendship you've given me through our time together on CCCB.
