A Farewell to Phindy's Challenges

It is with great sadness that I write this post. Phindy has decided to close down the challenge blog to focus on family. I wish her all of the best and want to take a minute to thank her and the DT for the wonderful experience I've had for the past year and a half.

Phindy, it has been a pleasure and privilege to work with your beautiful images. You are a talented artist, as well as a supportive and kind person. I feel so lucky to have had this experience with your DT, it has been stellar. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I have posted 74 challenges cards during my time in the DT and have felt so lucky to have these fabulous images that Phindy draws to use each week. I will miss posting these challenge cards every week, but plan to continue using these wonderful images. I will also dearly miss the DT girls, they have been friendly, helpful and so professional, made it a breeze for us to all work together. Special thanks to Anne and Cec for keeping things running smoothly.

Since I hate goodbyes, I'll just say see you soon (out there in blog land)!

Wow Kathy -- you have done a wonderful job for Phindy. Your card is lovely. I have heard that a lady always knows when it is time to leave. But I know I will be seeing lots and lots more or you oh talented friend!!

Incredible card, Kathy! Love your soft color combo and that bow is incredible! Great paper choices. I'm sorry to see Phindy's challenge closing -- it was one I really enjoyed playing, but it sounds as though maybe the store is staying open? If not, I have to get over there right away and purchase a whole bunch of them!~

Your card is lovely.

I'll have to come back later when I'm not as tired to spend some time roaming through your blog.

It was great to meet you today! I had a wonderful time with you at the class!
