All about the boys (or men!)

Hi blogworld,

Well here ends another era - this is the last Saturday that I'll be posting a card for the fabulous challenge that is Sweet Stampin.  I felt that I wasn't giving 100% to my wonderful DT buddies - lack of Mojo being the main culprit!  Then with the work that is going to be going on on our house in the next couple of months I'm just not going to be able to give the time that is needed to the challenge in the future either.  I've therefore taken the sad decision to step down.

So, boss ladies, thank you for picking me to be on the Team all that time ago - and my fellow DT buddies, have loved working with you.  If you can call this much fun working!!

Back to work! This challenge it's all about the boys - so we'd like to see your masculine cards please.

The arty farty:

I used:

Stamp:
The Greeting Farm - My Guy Ian
coloured with me Promarkers

Dies:
Stacking Stars
Nestie circles

Papers:
K&Co - Hopscotch

Anything else?
Hobby House - Pearls
The Ribbon Girl - Hessian Mesh

I do honestly feel that it's the end of an era for me - stepping down from two of my oldest DT positions, and leaving some fabulous Teamies, but I feel it is the right decision for me right now and I'm happy (sorta anyway!!) with the decision.

One thing thing this does mean, now then is this good or bad?, is that I should have some time to come visit all your blogs!  Be afraid, oooh yes be very afraid, this girl waffles and isn't afraid to share!!

Have a good weekend!

Sarah

Morning Sarah, it looks like a goal net to me too. I am sure your DT buddies will miss you, but you can only do what you feel to be best for you and your family. So enjoy your 'free' time.
