A Final Walk with EAD Designs

 Recognize these ?

It's what got me hooked on a company called

 And now what a bittersweet post to share.
Today bring us the final day we will be blog hopping
together as the designers of EAD Designs.

EAD has decided to close it's doors as new opportunities
are on the horizon.

It has been my pleasure to be a part of such a fantastic
company and a very creative team.

If you are here by way of the hop, you will have made
your way here from

If you would like to say farewell to each designer,
you'll want to stop by the
and make sure you leave a note along the way.

For my final post, I thought I would take a walk
down memory lane by revisiting some of the
projects I created during the past 10 months
as an EAD Designer.

Technically, this collection of cards and tags was created
just prior to coming on board as a designer, but they've always
been some of my favorites.

You can read the original post HERE

Here are some fairly Clean and Simple designs that were created
along the way for a variety of occasions.
To see the original posts, you can click each of these links:

Here are snippets of some fun and very different designs
using a variety of EAD Stickers.  I always enjoy adding embellishments
to my cards and these designs were perfect for that.

I created this one during the London Olympics and loved adding
the bling to the Eye.  The original post is HERE

I added a lot of elements to these sweet little Stickerz
and created a very flat, but dimensional card.
You can see how it was all completed HERE

Finally . . . I can't finish off the day without something for
Halloween.  Even though these projects were shared most
recently, I thought it would be great to end with these.

Who wouldn't love this colorful guy outside their back window ?

Everyone's favorite little green guy trying to escape
just reaching for that big blue gem !  You can find this card HERE


I've appreciated all the Mondays you've spent during our
Designer Blog Hops with EAD Designs.
I'll miss our dates, but I'm sure something will fill those
days soon.
Until then, please make sure you stop by my creative teammate

Thanks for coming by and walking down memory lane
with me and I hope you'll leave a little love before you go . . .

I just discovered EAD a month or two ago thanks to your blog. And now I can't believe they are going. Sigh.
