Challenge # 39 : Anything goes/Option with Farewell/Goodbye theme - our last challenge

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great week so far, and the world has been kind to you ...

I have some news to share today....
with great sadness I have to announce that this will be our last Challenge. I am so sorry to close down after only 18 months, but life has thrown me a few curve balls of late, and I need to get my priorities right...As some of you may be aware that I have had a setback with my health and will need to totally focus on getting well again.

This challenge blog and my own personal blog have been my saving grace...when things were tough I always had that release to concentrate on the blogs, but now I have a much bigger challenge ahead of me, and as much as I will miss you all and the wonderful Dragonflies, it's time to say Goodbye.
I really do appreciate everyone that has followed this blog and was very torn to keep going or not...but sometimes you have to make the hard decision....

You have all been so supportive and wonderful. I feel like I have so many new friends, its's been amazing how we can connect over the is full of surprises.
We will also be moving house and renovating......just to add to my list.

There is a season for everything, and my new season has opened up with a bunch of major I am embracing everything new and different......
Change can only be brought about if we are willing to get out of our comfort can't expect anything to change if you keep doing the same ol thing....mmmmh!

So the theme for our last challenge is 
Anything Goes, 
with the option of Farewell/Goodbye

Our sponsor is Pickled Potpourri,

and the winner will be announced in a couple of weeks, which will be the last blog announcement.
So make sure you keep checking back.

So here are some great inspiration from the Dragonflies for you to get your creative juices flowing...

Sammy made this amazing card and matching it

CG used this gorgeous image to perfection

Wynn made this gorgeous card

I just wanted to acknowledge my wonderful supportive Design Team, with out a doubt, including the Team Members that have left, it has been an absolute pleasure...Blessings Hilde

Anything goes, with option of Farewell/Goodbye...

Winners # 37 Breast Cancer Pink Card

Cards in Pink (for Breast cancer)

Well, that struck a nerve!
Yes, we all know someone struggling with this perfidious disease, and some of the stories people told us when they entered this challenge were heartbreaking. 

Many of the cards were so beautiful - real beacons of hope and displaying great care, concern and love for family and friends going through this - but also a feeling of optimism and a sureness that this insidious thing can be beaten.

Our sponsor for this challenge was Sami Stamps

Hilde: I love the blog post, short and simple but to the point, love the beautiful card, great colouring and details....

Please contact Hilde regarding your prize Lorraine (see tab at top of page), and don't forget to also copy/paste the winner's badge to display on your blog.
