Special post in Memory of Lindsey Martin-Penny

Hello Crafters,
We are deeply saddened to share the news that we lost our treasured friend and teammate, Lindsey, last week, following her hard-fought battle with cancer. Lindsey was well-known for her amazing creativity, witty sense of humor, and immense capacity to support and encourage her design team members and challenge participants. The crafting community will miss her shining light.

Today The Seize the Birthday Team is playing along with their Sister Challenge-Color Hues where Lindsey was also a Design Team Member. This challenge was to be hosted by Lindsey, so the Design Team wants to honor and celebrate her beautiful, creative life by sharing "Lindsey Inspired" projects using her Blue and Purple combination, along with things she loved the most, as inspiration. We hope that you will join us as we pay tribute to our dear friend and teammate.

Here are a few of her favorite things:
humor, cats
love of reading
*If you are a regular at Color Hues and/or Seize the Birthday you might also know that Lindsey loved Clean and Simple cards too.

Here is the card that I did and it was a special one to me as I remember Lindsey.  I think that she made a comment about a flowchart that I had done years back and I made this one and sent it to her. I would always get a chuckle out of her snarky sentiments and comments on my blog too. 

On the inside
This flowchart was computer generated and I used a circle of blue cardstock around each section. The panel is on a purple base in keeping with the Color Hues for this Challenge. 

We would love for you to join us and you can find all the details along with inspiration from both of the Design Teams over at the Color Hues blog below.
If you cannot join, swing on over and appreciate all that Lindsey meant to our team and teammates. 
Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments!

  2. All thoughts lead to wine. Yep. That was our Linds.

  3. Love your fun card, Lindsey would have laughed out loud. So cute!

  4. Such a sad post, I had not seen it before. This is a fabulous card, so clever. I'm sure Lindsey really loved it.
