Before I share my card with you all today I have a little announcement that I feel that I should make.
It is with great sadness that I had to make a very difficult Decision.
As all my fellow bloggers know, I have been with Heartfelt Creations for almost a year.....in actual fact they were my first ever Design Team which I applied for and successfully became part of!
Most recently I have become a Creative Expressions Demonstrator and Design Team member.
I have been asked by Heartfelt Creations if I would like do more workshops all over the UK and also demonstrate on Create and Craft TV. ....Wow! as you can imagine I was overwhelmed with excitement:) However for reasons which I don't feel is in my place to go into I am unable to do both....This decision has left me with many sleepless nights, but I have had to make the difficult decision to leave Creative Expressions.
This does not mean that I don't love working with there products or doesn't mean that my admiration for Sue and all the design team members has changed. All I can say is that I haven't made this decision lightly and I will always be thankful for Creative Expression for everything that they have done for me.
I hope you all understand, I had to make a choice.....Life is a journey and sometimes we find ourselves on a roundabout and have to choose which turning to take.......I believe that I have taken the right one and am looking forward to bringing inspiration to you all through Heartfelt Creations.
I hope you will all join me in my new adventure:)
