Goodbyes and Hellos! :)

Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a fun & safe celebration and that 2015 brings you nothing but health and happiness!

Today I have a couple of announcements: first, I'm stepping down as the Dilly Beans DT leader after 2 years of running the challenge blog.  I am not sure if Megan will keep it going, but if she does I'll definitely stay on as a DT member.  I love Dilly Beans and can't imagine not being a part of them since they've been such a big part of my life over the past 2 years.  I have made quite a few life-long friends and I'll forever be grateful for that for sure!  :)  Also, Jehanne from Just Some Lines has decided to close down the Just Some Lines challenge blog, as well.  Jehanne is an amazing artist and illustrator for children's books, and I wish her the best of luck with her artistic endeavors!  :)  These 2 companies have been a huge part of my life for the past couple of years, and I will miss that very much!

I'm happy to announce that I've joined the Chi Chi Memories Design Team!  I was thrilled when they asked me, it's always a real boost to your crafting ego when others like your work, isn't it?  So here is my first project, using the new release image Cute Little Girl:

I colored her with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and paper-pieced her cute outfit.  I'd also like to enter this into the following challenges:

We also have a new challenge for you at:

Oddball Art Mixed Mediaology Facebook Page: Anything Goes

I used Big Eye Witch Girl & Cat from Oddball Art, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  This was the Christmas card I made for my cat-lady daughter.  :)

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Bunny Zoe's Crafts: Buttons
Dream Valley Challenge: Christmas

That's all for now - off to enjoy my day off!  Peace.

Leaving you with God's Word in Hebrews 7:25 which says, "Therefore he (Jesus) is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them." God bless always!
