The Craft's Meow: believe.

post 1 of 2 for today...check out my Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop post HERE

Did you hear the news?


Sadly, Lisa has decided to close The Craft's Meow.  Read all the deets on the store blog.  

She's put together a farewell blog hop.  You should have arrived from the wonderfully talented Clare's blog
Clare's Creations

If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is The Craft's Meow Store Blog.

I started with The Craft's Meow in April 2011.  I was part of the original team and I was truly thankful for all the talent and friendships I made while being part of that DT.

In early 2012, I had the opportunity to meet Lisa.  She is an absolute doll...fabulously fun and a crack up!


So in honor of this hop, I put together a holiday card.  

Believe.


Believe in the future.

Believe in change.

Believe in you.

Best wishes to you Lisa

Wonderful card. I especially like the Washi tape and the little stiching. Such perfect touches.

Amy, thank you so much for your beautiful card and your kind words! I've missed having you create for TCM. Thank you again for all your help while you were on the team. You are a star! We sure did have a good run, didn't we? And we had so much fun in Seattle! I'd love to do it again some day.

My best wishes to you always, dear girl.

Hugs,
Lisa
