A couple months ago, I decided I needed to step down from some of my DT work. I have some "new" commitments having to do with church and a volunteer organization, so I needed to free up some time. One of the challenge blogs I designed for was closing at the end of December which was a perfect out without having to feel like I was letting anyone down. (It turns out that the owner decided NOT to close the challenge, but she is working without a design team anyway.) Another team was running a design team call, so I figured it was the perfect time to step down since they would be able to acquire new team members without any problems. And then the third team (the one I was planning to keep designing for) suddenly was closed down without any definite plans for the future. So, I find myself without any DT commitments. It's sad, but it's also good--now when I make (and post) cards it will be because I need them or because I WANT to make a card, not because I HAVE to make one. This is my first card after being Design Teamless. It is a birthday card for my cousin and I tried Jennifer McQuire's "Eclipse Sentiment Stamping" technique for something a little different.
