[Mami Doodles] Farewell Blog Hop

Hello everyone! You may have already heard of the sad news that our fun with all things Mami Doodles is coming to an end. In honor of our fun time with Elisa and her amazing designs, many of the current and past DT members have accepted my request put together a surprise blog hop to celebrate the accomplishments Elisa has undergone and the joy that Mami Doodles have brought to us.

So without further ado, I hope you are hopping over from my DT mate Pam's blog. If not, I want to encourage you to start back at the Mami Doodles blog and not miss out on this event.

Stamps: (Millie) Mami Doodles; (Say It Loud) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - White) Papertrey Ink; (Basic Card Stock - White) Recollections; (Salt Air) Cosmo Cricket; (envelope liner) Recycled
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin - No. 2 Cough Syrup) Ranger
Embellishments: (Mister Huey - Lunchtray) Studio Calico; (Border Punch - Poststage Stamp) Fiskars

My letter along this blog hop is D in Mami Doodles blog hop. Millie is one of my favorite digis. She is so fun, sweet, and delightful. I thought since she's our little mascot at Mami Doodles, it would be a nice tribute to dear Elisa to use this sweet Millie digi. I even tried to stay true to the colors that Millie sports on the Mami Doodles blog page. After that, the card came pretty easily together, since I knew that I want this card to be a message of Celebration!


On a personal note, I would like to thank Elisa for this wonderful opportunity. Mami Doodles was my first "break" into being on a DT that showcases an actual product. I accepted for the experience, but also with the joy of working with such great designs. Elisa has a very keen eye for drawing and her illustrations are fabulous. What I treasured most about working with Elisa is her laid-back and caring nature. She is very sweet and whenever a DT member is out sick or out of commission, she follows up with nice and caring email or card. I really enjoyed how we have grown over time to become friends, and I hope to one day meet her in real life :)

Even if the chapter to the Mami Doodles store comes to an end, I would like to wish Elisa many other successful endeavors. I hope she will continue to share her talent and art with the rest of the world. Elisa, here is to many more and our friendship!

Before I send you off to the next stop, I just wanted to remind everyone that the store closes on March 16, 2012. There is currently a big retirement sale going on. Use THANKYOU as the promo code when checking out, and everything will discounted 50% off.

In addition, leave a comment and I will draw a lucky winner off this post to select a digi of your choice! Winners are posted on Wednesday on the Mami Doodles Blog and here. So please check back :)

Such a fitting way to say goodbye to the Mami Doodles shop. It has been great to be your fellow DT member.
