Final Farewell


I really was challenged with what to do for our "Final Farewell to TAC" Blog Hop - and then this afternoon it finally came to me and this card reflects now only what I feel but what TAC has meant to me the past 9 years. When I think of TAC, Mischelle - and the dear angel friends I have made over the years I can only smile with the memories. Tac inspired me to take risks, be creative, and come out of my shell - when I joined I was so much a "lurker" but with the encouragement of Mischelle and dear angels I spread my wings and learned to fly. My self esteem grew, I became more confident in my skills and learned there was no "wrong" way or mistakes in stamping, it was just an opportunity to embellish!!! And embellish I do!!! May everyone be showered with blessing as new opportunities arise - I know everyone will find their niche and continue to be creative. Thank you for all the memories which no one can take away!!! Now follow the links and continue on this final farewell journey to TAC.
