Thank you Lena, take care xx

It is with great sadness that I tell you that due to personal reasons and a heavy workload that Lena has decided to leave our design team :(

Lena, as you all know, makes the most stunning cards and gift items, and we will miss seeing her awesome work each week,
Tomorrow's challenge will be her last DT work for us, but I can tell you, it is another beauty!

It may be her last DT card, but we hope that Lena will join in as a challenger now and then when she has the time to do so.

To Lena... a HUGE THANK YOU for your inspiration, commitment, wonderful creations and most of all your friendship.
Much love from all your friends here at SS xx
