Thank You Mynn Blog Hop

Hi everyone,

It's the first of the month which would usually mean it's time for a new challenge at MHKDesigns, and also for a new set release.  But sadly, Mynn, the very talented owner of MHKDesigns and card creating genius, has made the very tough decision to close the blog (the Etsy store will remain open for the time being at least, but nothing new will be added to it) to focus on what's important to her, her life as a teacher.

The news came as quite a shock to myself and the other DT members, but it's a decision we totally support.  And because most of us already had our cards created for today, we've decided to instead make it a blog hop to say thank you to Mynn for all she's done for us.  The hop order is further down the post, but first I'd like to share a little of what Mynn means to me...

I've known her for years after initially coming across her other challenge blog, House of Cards, (which I've now been on the DT for for 3 years), and she is one of my closest friends.  She really is remarkable, and although she apologized profusely for the news coming just months into my first term with MHKDesigns, there really was no need for her to so.  Because, as I've said, she's had my back for years, and now it's time for me to support her in the way she has always supported me.

Mynn, I really cannot thank you enough!

Here's what would have been our inspiration photo for this month...

And here's my card, created using the digi set Majestic Medalions which unfortunately won't be added to the store...

MHK Designs Digi Stamp set: Majestic Medalions colored with Spectrum Noir markers
Tools and embellishments: Sue Wilson's Sydney from the Australian Collection, and Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen

Before we get to the hop, it would be remiss of me, as the "last" member of the DT, to not mention all who have gone before me... Alicia, Asmah, Donna, Jerrie, Katie, Lilian, Lorie, Michele, Monica, NanaConnie, and Tasha... all of whom helped make MHKDesigns what it was... bursting with talent!

Hop order...

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
