and

Good Times

My card was inspired by the latest



This is definitely a bittersweet post for me.  It is my last blog hop with The Craft's Meow.  I've decided to step down from the Team at the end of the month.  I'm currently on 7 active Design Teams and my full time job is incredibly busy for me so unfortunately I have to change things up.  I'll also be stepping down from a couple other teams in the near future...I'll definitely miss the TCM Family, I've been on the team from the early days.  I've enjoyed creating with every single set that TCM has designed and will always be a BIG fan!

Now hop on over to my super fantastic teamie, Aimes
