FFF/ and some SAD news!!!

Hello everyone, today I have some super sad news to share! Todays Farm Fresh Friday card is my Last card to make for The Greeting Farm as a DT member for The Greeting Farm! 
( I will still be designing for other companies, just so there is no confusion on this post)

These BEAUTIFUL Flowers were sent to me by Marie the owner and dear friend from The Greeting Farm!!! Thank you sooooo MUCH Marie!!!! I LOVE Them!

I had to take 2 pictures of them!!! :) they are BEAUTIFUL and really made my day when the UPS guy brought this big box full of fresh flowers!!! :)

I have soooo ENJOYED my time on TGF and Im sooo Thankful to Marie for finding me on SCS and asking me to be a part of her wonderful DT! Thank you Marie!!! I will miss all TGF DT sisters that ive come to know, and have loved working with!!! Jessica I want to say thank you for being an AWESOME DT coordinator! This post is super hard for me to write up, and its gonna be a short one!!! I know you are asking why am I leaving, well I signed a 1 year contract last year and my time is up! I would have LOVED to stay on, but I guess needed to move on :)

 I know that when 1 door closes another will open, and it already has!!! :) Ive always believed in that, but its still hard to say Goodbye! I know I will still have my wonderful friendships that ive made along the way :) and thank God for that!!!!  I will continue to do some of The Greeting Farm challenges, so I wont be a stranger :) hehehhehe

I will have some exciting news to share with everyone on May 1st, thats tonight at Midnight!!!! :)
