The 2008/09 Design Team Says Goodbye!

It's time for the August Firecracker Designs blog hop! The theme this month is: The 2008/09 Design Team Says Goodbye! This is the final blog hop of the current design team so we thought it only fitting that we went with a "goodbye/missing you" theme. To make this blog hop even more fun, Pamela has decided to have a Scavenger hunt for a 25% off coupon code that will be good on your entire order (excluding magazine orders please)! Each design team member will have a secret letter/symbol that you need to find. Once you've gone all the way around, you'll have all the letters for the code. To unscramble them, put them in order, starting with Pamela's blog. (Follow the links from there, to get the correct order for the letters.). Have Fun!
(If you haven't figured out my secret letter yet, I'll give you one more hint at the end of my post).

For my card I used the FCD set "Elephants on Parade". I absolutely love this set. It is full of fun elephant images and sentiments that coordinate perfectly!
I want to thank Pamela for giving me the opportunity to be on her design team for the past year. It has been a great year and I'm sad to see it come to an end! It has been a true blessing to work for such a great company!

Thanks for stopping by today! This is a “circular blog hop” where the beginning is wherever you start!! You will know you are at the end of the blog hop when you’ve come back to the blog you’ve started from! (It’s not a huge circle…so it should be easy to remember where you started.)

There will be blog candy given away to 1 lucky blog hop participant. The winner will be chosen from the comments left on the blog of one of the FCD design team members...but which one? The blog candy hostess is a mystery! We don't even know who the blog candy hostess will be until the hop is over…so make sure you leave a comment on EVERY blog, so you don’t miss out on a chance at the blog candy!

****If you are the blog candy winner, you will be contacted by Pamela via e-mail (so be sure to leave it with your comment.) and you can also find out the winner on Pamela’s blog after the blog hop ends on Monday, August 31st at 8:00 PM (EST).****

Now, to continue the circle, hop on over the the blog of the incredibly talented Ursula,
and keep going until you’ve come back to where you’ve started! Thanks so much for playing along with us and we hope you have a great time!

Have A great day!
