Farewell is not Goodbye!

I'm here saying farewell Paula from our Die Cut Divas blog.  Due to personal reasons, Paula is stepping down from the challenge blog.

She is a woman that deserves the title "Diva".  I got to know Paula through the Flickr group of Die Cut Divas and was thrilled to assist with the challenges there and now on the blog.  I have also had the thrill of meeting Paula for real.... The first time nearly 4 years ago when she had a two week old baby!  (My, Paula, hasn't the time flown by!) and then again in September 2012 when I got to spend a whole day with her, talking and visiting her local stamp store and doing some crafting too.  I can tell you, this is one LOVELY lady.  Paula, I will miss you  on the blog, but I can tell we'll be friends long time.  Next time I'm in Mooloolaba you can guarantee I'll be popping in for tea and card making!

Here's the card I sent Paula to say thanks for being such a fabulous Diva.

I used an adorable little bee from Bugaboo to make my card,  I coloured and fussy cut parts of the been to layer. I used an embossing folder on the PP to make my base and when I cut the dies, I sponged with blue ink before removing the dies.  There's lots of Wink of Stella on the card both black and clear. 
(P.S. sorry for the poor photo quality.. I nearly forgot to take a photo and had to take this on my cell phone)

I will certainly miss Paula on the blog but am sure she'll still be around on her own blog - Scappy Me

Hello Dawn,
How sad Paula had to leave the team, but as you say it is not goodbye.
I am sure she will enjoy your card very much, the Bg is fabulous.
