A sad goodbye

Hello everyone and welcome. This is Astrid here with my final post for the Artistic Stamper.
After long consideration I have decided that after two and a half years with this wonderful team, it is time for me to move on.

Life makes many demands on us and my life is going to take me in different directions....

I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this fantastic team and work with Jennie's fabulous stamps. She is the most generous and kind leader any design team could want and I want to say a HUGE BIG THANK YOU to her!!!!

For my final post I am going to do a review of some of the many projects I have created, starting with the first one in 2012. I decided to show you 12 projects in all spanning the many months on the team.
My very first project, a wall hanging

An altered box

One of the many cards

Size 10 tag

Accordion fold mini book

Shabby chic hanger

Mixed media journal page

An altered book

Christmas tag booklet

Mixed media card

Bookmark

and one of my final projects, an Artist Trading Block


I would like to thank all my wonderful teamies old and new, it has been great to work together with you and finally, last but not least, I want to thank you lovely visitors for all your support and wonderful comments, - you are the best!!!!

Hello Astrid,
This has been a long time as a Dt; they will miss you, but on the positive side you have opened the door for another talent to step in and enjoy being part of this team here.
I hope this is not going to be start of a domino effect and you step down from your other Design Teams.... What a selfish thing for me to say, I love your work you know that, so wherever life is pulling you I hope to still see more of your creations.
Smiles:)
Sue
