I'm Home to Sad News

Hello everyone! We are home from vacation, and had a great time at Disney World! I've posted some photos at Facebook if you're interested in seeing any of them, but I will skip posting them here.

Upon my return, I learned of some sad news about Lizzie Anne Designs. Here's what the girls have posted at the LAD Blog:

After five wonderful years, it’s time for us to say goodbye. We’ve loved being a part of your creative outlet all these years, and the friendships we’ve made in this industry have been invaluable.
Visit Tricia and Meridith's blogs to read more.

Everything is 40% - 50% off! All sales are final. This is your last chance to stock up on Lizzie Anne stamps as all designs will be retiring! Everything must go!

The Mix Club is now CLOSED.We've shipped out the new Summer Mix sets to all our current members this week. There are a few members who we weren't able to collect payment from. If you are a Mix Member and you don't have your Summer Mix set yet and you'd like to receive it, please email us by Friday, July 1st (note that sets sent to international destinations will not have arrived yet). We have a very limited number of these sets, and there is a good chance that these may never be released to the general public on our site. Thank you to all our loyal Lizzie Anne Fans.Love, Lizzie & Anne
I am still in a bit of shock over the news, and am typing this with a bit of tears in my eyes. Lizzie Anne Designs will always hold a special place in my heart, and so will Tricia and Meridith. They are so much more than "bosses", they are the dearest of friends! Thank you both for having faith in me as a designer to showcase your fabulous stamps. I will be holding on to them, and continue to use them for my cards and creations. I will also dearly miss being a part of the awesome LAD team!! What a great group of supportive and talented girls!! (((Big group hug here)))

Here are a couple of cards using the July Simply Singles stamp, Big Thank You.

***sigh***
I agree, Rose Ann. The news about Lizzie Anne closing is definitely sad. What a roller coaster of emotion for you to come home from delightful times in Mouseville to read about this closing. Glad you had a fun vacay though.

I'm sorry to hear about that, Rose Ann. You've been a true blue designer for them for a long time and I know you'll miss them. You've always shown how cute and easy their stamps are, and these cards are perfect examples. Wishing them all the best.

Sorry to hear about Lizzie Ann...I can *hear* how sad you are about the news. You've done their stamps proud though. Always such cute cards. :)

Susan (rainy) said...

This is sad news.. so sorry. You have always designed such wonderful things with their stamps. Love these two examples here.. so fresh and bright.

Kristine said...

awww, that is incredibly sad. I know that digis have become all the rage, but stamps are what got me started in this hobby (and led to me blogging) so it's really sad to see rubber stamp companies close. You created such wonderful creations (and will continue) with LAD.

On a happy note... what a FUN vacation!! We took our girls to Disneyland (CA) last year and had a blast. This year we've chosen a much more laid back vacay at the beach. =) Anyways... have fun getting back into creating. Hugs!
