Simply Create Too #69 and a Farewell

This is a difficult post for me to write. I have decided to step down from the Simply Create Too DT. I have overextended myself a bit and I feel too stressed about all those challenge blogs I am on, trying to keep up with the deadlines and commenting on top of working full time and running my household. I have been with Simply Create Too now for almost 1 1/2 years. It was the first DT for me and I will be always grateful to Diane, the owner, to give me a chance. I learned a lot and really enjoyed being on this wonderful team with all its creative and supportive members. So this card is for the wonderful Simply Create Too family.

Thank You All!

The challenge for the next week is to show us something new. I lately saw a few Brusho cards in blog land and was intrigued. Had to get that stuff.....And it is FUN I must say. Its pigment crystals. You sprinkle them on and mist with water. Great effect - absolutely love it. You will see more of that in the future from me, I promise. 

I hope to see you over at Simply Create Too. Come and visit and get inspired by our DT. By the way there is a DT call going on right now and I can only recommend you apply. Its a great team!

I am linking this card with following challenges:
 Simon Says Wednesday challenge - use a clear or rubber stamp and leave comments on all the blog hop stops (left comments and used clear stamps)
Bizzy Bec's - Anything Goes
Lawnscaping challenge - one layer card
Darnell's NBUS challenge #2

           Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

Eine traumhafte Karte hast Du geschaffen, auch wenn der Anlass dafür mit Wehmut behaftet ist.

Oh Cornelia ich kann das so gut verstehen, so ein Entschluss
ist nie leicht, manchmal muss Frau aber einfach neue Wege gehen...
Deine Karte ist wieder fantastisch!!!
LG hellerlittle

Flo said...

Ja, da hast du aber auch mächtig viel am Hals!!! Ich kann mir sehr gut vorstellen, dass du da mächtig im Stress bist.
Auch diese Karte ist wieder einmal wunderbar. Danke fürs Zeigen.
LG Flo

Cornelia, your card is absolutely gorgeous; what a wonderful way to showcase the lovely poppy stamp! I'm sad to hear you're stepping down from Simply Create, Too - but given all your other commitments, totally support your decision. The plus side of this: you're on other design teams so we'll still be treated to your amazing creativity!!

Susanne Vargas said...

I was wondering how you were able to manage everything...
Love your card! I am very intrigued by those Brusho paints and the awesome stuff I have been seeing on various blogs. They are on my wish list....

Hi, Cornelia: This card is absolutely gorgeous! I was sure you used watercolors [kind of difficult to control] this seems much easier [got to check this product out, but you KNEW I would!] Bet other crafters will too--it's a beautiful effect to use!


Darnell J Knauss said...

You card made me gasp, Cornelia! I love it!! It was a wise and thoughtful decision, but I know you will be missed on the DT. Luckily for us, we will see you on others and on your blog. Hugs, Darnell

Debra James said...

Such gorgeous watercoloring!! Thanks for joining us at Lawnscaping Challenges! :)

Anita in France said...

Stunning, Cornelia, absolutely beautiful. I've not been in blogland much over the last week or so, and am enjoying catching up with all your lovely work ... and had to stop here to let you know how awesome your card is. I admire your decision to step down from SCT, even though it was a difficult one ... there is only so much of you to go around! Anita :)

Oh Cornelia, ich kann dich nur zu gut verstehen und ich glaube dir gern, dass es eine schwierige Entscheidung für dich war! Auch wenn man sich noch so viel Mühe gibt um alles unter einen Hut zu bringen, irgendwann geht einem der Gaul durch und man rennt nur noch hinterher!!
Deine Karte sieht fantastisch aus und dein erster Versuch mit den Pigmentkristallen ist dir total gut gelungen.
Es gäbe noch so viele andere tolle Karten bei dir zu kommentieren..... aber leider, leider kann ich in letzter Zeit auch nur noch die Posts und Kommentare für die Challengeblogs bewältigen, bei denen ich mich engagiert habe.
Ganz liebe Grüße sendet dir Rosi
