Saying Goodbye to the Lily Pad Pond

For the last year I have had the supreme pleasure of working with some of the nicest and most creative people in the crafting world. As a member of the Lily Pad Cards Dream Team from the start I have been blessed to be part of this special place that was first dreamed up by Deborah and Vicky. It's been a wonderful place for sharing creativity and challenges. And I've loved getting to know the clever and creative people who have played in the challenges and been featured as Guest Designers. Deborah and Vicky have nurtured Lily Pad Cards and made it the huge success it became. I want to thank them both for all the encouragement, love and laughs we shared.

I thought I would include a little retrospective of favorite projects I've done with Lily Pad Cards.

Our little team of pond-ers has included some truly talented crafters who have made Lily Pad Cards a special place to visit:

I hope you will visit their blogs and leave them some comment love!

It has been a wonderful ride with Lily Pad Cards. As I'm sad to see it end there is always some new adventure waiting around the corner.....
