Time To Say Goodbye

Good morning stampin friends! Hope this post finds you happy and not too busy on this beautiful Saturday morning. I say that in hopes that wherever you are today that it is beautiful with no snow, rain or gloominess. Here in Georgia we are expecting a lot of sunshine the next few days and I'll take it!

Today is a bittersweet day for the Design Team at Dynamic Duos. It is our last challenge working together. It is also the last challenge for Dynamic Duos as a challenge blog. Yes, you read that correctly. Feel free to go back and re-read that again just to make sure you read it right. I was sad to hear that it was closing as well but in the end all good things must come to an end.

So for the last and final challenge we have beautiful colors to share with you and help you design a project to showcase your talent.

See I told you that they were beautiful. I wouldn't lead you astray. I saw the colors and was so excited to get my paper and design something so share with you.

I wanted to showcase all the colors as much as possible so I figured that making a background with them would make that happen. I cut all the strips the same size and just glued them to the card base. Punched out some different sized hearts and glued those in different parts of the card. I added some Crystal Effects and white dash lines to a few hearts and called it a day. I also used a stamp set from a Hostess Set for my sentiment and heat embossed it with Pool Party embossing powder. All in all, it's one of my favorite cards. It's simple yet packs a punch.

I would like to take this opportunity to say Thank You to Lesley and Anne Marie for allowing me to be a part of their journey with this amazing challenge blog. They made a dream come true and raise my confidence to a new level. I have met amazing women along the way and I respect each and everyone of them as crafters. They are all amazingly talented and I couldn't feel more honored to call them friends.

As I sign off on my last challenge for the Dynamic Duos, I want to say that if you have a dream or a goal to GO FOR IT. Don't tell yourself that you can't. Put your mind to it and make it happen. It may happen the first time you try or it may take a few times but in the end you will be proud of yourself for not giving up.

I tried to think of a good quote to leave you with and this is the one that immediately came to mind.

Now head on over to the rest of my wonderful design team friends and check out what they have made for you today! Find some time this week to join us and I can't wait to see what you create with these colors!
