Time for change

If you missed my post this morning I am just writing this to let you know that I have stepped out of the crafters Companion Design Team due to deteriorating health and impending surgery.

I could not give a full years commitment to Crafters Companion which is what they needed for me to continue.

I feel lucky and privileged to have worked with some stunning products, with an amazing team of people but my health has to come first.

On a positive note I will be able to play with all those crafting goodies i have, that have never been opened as i haven't had time.

I will still be around blog land as an when my health allows but I will be keeping an eye on all of you Crafters Companions out there that I feel are true friends .

Thanks to everyone for their lovely comments about my work and for becoming followers of my blog.

All my love Cathy x

I have to admit that iam not the worlds best colourist but I am very happy with the way this card came out.
