saying goodbye…

…is always hard!  It’s one thing that I’m not very good at.  In fact, I try to avoid it if possible.  “Goodbye”  just seems so final and I like to think that someday I will meet people again.  Sadly though, today’s post is full of goodbyes.

For the past three years I have been designing for All That Scraps and have had many wonderful opportunities, including illustrating my own rubber stamps.  That was very exciting!  This week, though, I have decided that it is time to step down and take a break.  This was a tough decision and I want you to know that I am not leaving due to any unhappiness with ATS.  Christine has been great to work for and I hope you still go and shop at the ATS store…I know I’ll still be shopping there!  Christine has great service.  I am just looking to simplify my life a bit and I’m sure that’s something you can all understand.  Time is precious.  I wish I knew how to create more of it.   ;^) 

So while I’m on a sad note, I thought I’d share this card with you.  I am way behind on a few Sympathy cards (probably because I avoid those goodbyes!) and I thought this lovely verse from AmyR’s Get Well Sentiments was just perfect to use now.

Clean.  Simple.  To the point.  I really like this one! 

Thanks for stopping by and if you love the C.C. Design’s images, keep checking in!  I will have a few more to post in the next few weeks and I’m sure they will continue to be used in the future.  :)
