Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Special Thanks! Blog Hop

Today I am joining with many other friends to say FAREWELL to our beloved "Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine" as part of a very Special Thanks Blog Hop!

It is so very difficult to believe that this beloved magazine brought to us all by so many incredible and talented individuals will be no more.  This magazine helped make me a card-maker.  It inspired me, it taught me - Thanks GO-TO Gals! -  and it made me part of an incredible group of individuals who love to create!  It is this wonderful and inspiring and hope-filled community that I love so much that I know will continue to thrive long after the last issue of this magazine is put to bed.

How we will miss the tremendous inspiration, spirit of friendship and love of card and paper artistry that was shared here in a wonderful gathering space!! I want to thank everyone that has been a part of bringing this wonderful magazine and all of its parts (printed, blog, and digital) to all of us!  What a true blessing you have been in our creative lives!  

It is snowy and freezing cold out here in Seattle so I thought for my special thank you card a snow-woman would be appropriate!   I used the lovely "Snow Friends" stamp and sweet cuts dies from Paper Sweeties.   I had to add some glossy accents to her wonderful top hat that she is wearing to wish everyone a fond farewell and she is holding lots of love in her arms for all of you that have been such a huge blessing in this lovely PCS community we are all a part of! 

There are so many wonderful and talented designers and companies joining in this hop so I won't keep you.

A special heartfelt wish for each one of you as you finish your last days at the magazine.....

As this door closes I wish for you a beautiful window opening wide....with lovely curtains billowing a welcome as the sun shines in and you begin new adventures!  God Bless You ALL!  And thank you from the bottom of my heart for the many years of inspiration!!!!!
