Blooms with a sad farewell.

Today is a sad day for me as it’s my last post with the DT with Purple Onion Designs.   So I would just like to say a big thank you to Michele, you are incredible and  have a fantastic and supportive team and I know I will continue to be inspired by all of you.

For my final card I knew it had to involve some flowers and these little Blooms are stunning, so I kept it very clean & simple.

  1. This is such a wonderful card, Therese! To me it looks like a sympathy card with a ray of hope shining through. I really, really love this design. So sad that you leave the POD DT. It were these cards that brought me to your blog in the first place. I love your other creations too, but I hope you’ll still make one or two (ore even more) projects with Michele’s stamps in the future.

  2. That’s too bad 🙁 Actually you were the one who inspired me to buy the awesome goodness of POD, I am so gonna miss ur inspiration of POD.
    The last card you crated is simply amazing 🙂 love the pop of yellow..

  6. This is indeed sad news, as I love how you’ve used POD stamps. You turned me on to Stacey Yacula’s designs, especially — I JUST put in another order for her cute critters.

I’m sure you’ll be on many more DTs soon — who wouldn’t want your talent?? 🙂

  7. Therese!!! How are you? I’ve still not made it to the post to mail your card… sigh. Will do so soon!

Now on to catch up with your other posts– I’ve not visited anyone in a very long time.

I love everything about it – the paper is gorgeous, the flowers so nicely designed (typical Purple Onion amazing), the color combo fascinating and the subtle shine on them just finishes it all perfectly.
