December SFYTT

Hi There! It's been awhile, huh? Today's post is one with a couple of important announcements, so stay tuned for those. I haven't posted in a few weeks and I missed the first Team Post for the December SFYTT because we were on a little mini vacation on Oahu. But I'm back, which brings me to the first announcement...I'm sure most of you stampers have heard by now that this is the Final SFYTT - yes final as in EVER! After years of fabulous inspiration, Jen has decided to take a break from the sketches. So how about a look at that final sketch?

For my card, I decided to pull out my all-time favorite Verve set, Happy Days, as well as some patterned paper from the Seen and Noted collection from Pebbles. I added some splattered ink and a few wood veneer stars and called it good.

So this brings me to my second announcement, which is really hard for me to make, but I've been putting it off for several weeks now and it's time. After several amazing years as a DT member for Verve, I recently stepped down, which was a super hard decision to make. Right now I'm just wanting to spend more time with my family and less time blogging. I still love Julee and Verve and all of the wonderfully talented Divas, but I'll just be going back to being a really good customer.

I'll also probably be posting a lot less frequently in 2013 than I have in the past. Well, actually, probably about the same as I have the last couple of months as I've already pretty much cut back on that. Most of what you'll see from me will be Project Life posts (I'll just start fresh with that in 2013) and the occasional card here and there, but I'm no longer on any DTs, so no more deadlines or blog hops. I do have one Guest DT gig lined up in a few months, but other than that things will be pretty mellow around here.

OK, back to the December SFYTT... Each month this year, as in years past, we've had some amazing sponsors.

Fabulous card, Jen! Love the papers and those bitty little wooden stars. I'm excited you'll be continuing to show your Project Life stuff. I've purchased a few starter items and am hoping to get going with it in 2013. You've been one fabulous DT member and friend and I wish you all the happiness and memory making experiences possible that adorable little Dean of yours! Hugs.
