#201 Friendship/Keep In Touch/Goodbye

Good Morning Crafty Pad followers and friends!
Sadly today is a heart-breaking day amongst us :(

Our ever so wonderful, talented and darling Debbie Moore
 'Boss Lady' has come to a very hard decision and made the tough
conclusion to close The Crafty Pad Designs Shop, along with the
challenge blog :(  This decision has not been reached lightly.
Great time and thought has gone into this evaluation and for the
moment, it is the right path for Debbie to take.

We would like to say a massive thank you to all of our
wonderful sponsors, who have kindly donated prizes,
images and goodies to the Design Team.

An enormous thank you to all our current and past Design Team
and guests! Without you, we would not have made it this far!
You are all exceptional, talented and gifted and we thank you!

And lastly; our followers, friends and customers!
You have made this journey memorable, incredible and extraordinary!
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

In admiration of the good times we have had here at
The Crafty Pad,the friendships that have been formed,
moulded and been discovered, today we bring you
our final challenge ....
Friendship / Keep In Touch/Goodbye
