Bittersweet

I know all of you all LOVE the monthly one card swap. I do too! I am so grateful to all of YOU for the support you've shown me for the last year. Can you all believe that it's been one year? I can't! Well, if you know me personally, you know that my life has been spinning in circles with all of the events happening in my life and it's actually driving me crazy to keep track of everything that I'm responsible to do. Yeah, I'm admitting...super woman is no longer super and I'm actually starting to feel extreme pressure. I know, get to the point! This post is to announce that the April OCS will be the last swap organized by me - boo hoo! BUT GOOD NEWS! I am passing the torch to two of my best buddies, Linda and Kyoko and they will continue our wonderful monthly one card swap. I have shared all of the data files with them (your info and the swap lists from last year til current) and I am trust them with all my heart that they will take good care of all of you. If you enjoyed being a player in the one card swap, please continue to play!
As you know, the OCS is also a chance for me to "play" with other images other than my beloved SU...Here is a card that I sent to my GF Michelle for her bday. Whew! This was a tough decision to make, but I know that for my sanity, I needed to "pass the torch"...I'm still working on reorganizing my life to stay sane! Thank you for all of your support and love and I'm looking forward to becoming a "player" now! yippee!! Thanks Linda and Kyoko for being my best buddies and helping me out with this fun swap!! Love you.
