I asked the team members, both present and past, if they'd like to share some parting words and also share three of their favourite cards that they made using CBD images. Here is what they had to say and share...
I have been privileged to have been a member of the CBD challenge team right from the start. I have enjoyed creating with such a variety of lovely images that I have worked with over that time. I will miss the challenges and I thank Lisa and Naomi for including me in their team and wish them all the best.
Suze's Three Favourite Card Creations:
Having been on the team for a very short time it is really hard for me to be saying goodbye to everyone so soon. I have really enjoyed working with the CBD images, they are all so adorable and I am going to miss them. I am also going to miss seeing everyone's wonderful projects.
Two of our recent past members also found the time to add their thoughts and cards to this special post...
I consider myself incredibly lucky to have been part of the great team over at Creative Bug. The images from Naomi were very cute and fun to color. Lisa was the most amazing coordinator that you can have making sure all would run smoothly. As designers we all had different styles and it made it very fun and creative as well as stress free!!! I’m very sorry to see the store close and that chapter has finished.
Vicky's Three Favourite Card Creations:
I have really enjoyed my time on the Creative Bug Digital Snapshots Design Team. It has really given me an opportunity to make new friends while promoting some wonderful images. Naomi and Lisa have both been very generous and wonderful to work with and I have loved seeing all of Naomi's images come to life in the challenges we have hosted.
Three Favourite Card Creations:
Well that happens to be what our DT chose to share and I thought that I'd add my own two cents as well.
How on earth can I possibly sum up this experience into a couple short paragraphs? Well, I can't. There are just so many thoughts and feelings that I have, it would be impossible to share it all. Suffice it to say that it has been wonderful being able to support and promote my good friend Naomi. I only wish I could have done a better job--that way we wouldn't be saying goodbye to you all today. I took it upon myself to become Naomi's Promotional Coordinator almost two full years ago and I never regretted that decision. It has been a lot of hard work but it has been worth it. Naomi has become one of my closest friends and I will treasure our time together working to put Creative Bug Digital SnapShots on the map. Along with that, I had the best group of ladies to work with. Thankfully, each of the above women are on at least one of the two other teams I am involved with either as owner or co-coordinator, which means that I don't have to say goodbye to them.
I also got to meet some new people along the way as I got to know some of Naomi's followers. Some of which have become my own. Thank you for that!
Today may be a sad day as we say our goodbye's but I have so many happy memories of my time here that the sadness will only linger momentarily. Who knows?! Maybe one day if the stars align, Naomi may be back in business and I right along side her. Now of course, CBD isn't going away completely, Naomi's images will still be offered up as prizes and we will still be sponsoring anyone interested. Besides, several of these images are so wily, they often escape from the store all on their own! You never know where you might end up seeing one of them!
I too decided to share a few of my favourite creations that I made using Naomi's images and like Suze, I had an extremely difficult time in making my choice. Finally however, I ended up with these...
So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, adieu! Thank you so much for all your support this past two years, that I've been posting over here and of course for your interest in Naomi's adorable images. Naomi and I felt it fitting that we share some final freebies with you all for a variety of occasions. Enjoy!
Clicking on each of the above five watermarks will take you to a download location where you can grab these images. I'll leave the links active until the beginning of the new year to give people a chance to download them.
Well, now it is definitely that time--time to bring it all to conclusion.
See you all on the flip side! I may pop in from time to time just to see what you've been up to, share some news or even offer up a classic freebie. You just never know when I might pop around or when Naomi might be able to stop in and share some news with you. We thank you all for your support! If you would ever like to come and visit me on my own personal blog, I'd love to see you there. You can find me at:
