Muse #169 - a farewell

Sadly, today I say farewell.  To say I've enjoyed my stint as your Muse is a total understatement ... I've loved every single week, post, comment, card, and OH the friends I've made along the way - we must all stay in touch!

For my final Muse, I CASE'd my first Muse card!  It was a silly little idea I had to accentuate the negative.  Just one of many  silly ideas I had for my weeks as your Muse.  I do hope you enjoyed those extra little challenges I sent your way.  Thank you for all your wonderful creations - as your Muse I was meant to inspire, I was certainly more inspired by you!

Today's card accentuates the positive - die cuts!  and could I ever miss the chance to use a last little slip of vellum?

Inside:
"... this isn't goodbye!  Every moment together, every memory created,  will be cherished forever!"
 
 I will love seeing your cards in the Muse gallery
You'll join me, won't you?
 
Sending a pocketful of love and hugs to you all, and to my wonderful team-mates!  Thank you, Ardyth, for inviting me.
 
=]  Michele
