Welcome! You are at the first stop of the Michelle Perkett Studio "We Heart You and Thank You for your Friendship" Blog Hop and Challenge!
I have been dreading this day because it is the last challenge with all of our current MPS DT Mermaids. But we are here to celebrate them! We want to show our appreciation and thank them for their hard work and especially their lovely friendship they have shared with us over the last 6 months!
Jan, Tammy, Melissa, Marilyn and Margie will be leaving us and I would like to tell you girls that you have been more than just a DT to me and to all of us. You have been more of an extended family. You warm friendship you have shown to our group and our members has been so warmly appreciated, much more than you know. You have all displayed the qualities that I look for in not only a DT but in friends as well. I will miss you dearly and will miss seeing your incredible creations each week. You all have made MPS a place that people feel comfortable sharing their good times and bad and sharing their MPS creations, knowing that they will always hear a positive comment just like they would from a good friend or family member! And a special thank you for Jan for all of your amazing blog posts on Thursdays and for all of your Challenge posts! They were all so wonderful and we cant thank you enough!! And thank you to Margie for her fun parties and excitement for each of our events at MPS! Thank you all so much for being such wonderful ladies and for working so hard to make our group such a success! We Love you!!:) I also want to give a special thank you to Julie, who was with us for the first part of our hop but had to leave us early, thank you so much for your lovely friendship and beautiful creations, Julie, we miss you!!:)
And to Marion, Shelley, Claire, Mari, Andrea and Pauline! I thank you all as well from the bottom of my heart for your amazing friendship and creativity and for making Michelle Perkett Studio one of the most uplifing groups to be a part of and a place for sharing and caring! I am thrilled to have you back for another 6 month term and I know it will be as much fun as the last 6 and I know you will welcome our new DT ladies with open arms!:) And a Big thank you to Marion for all of her Saturday posts as well as her weekly Challenge posts, especially over the last couple of months with her family illnesses, Thank you Marion for everything!! And another big thank you to Shelley for running our blog hops and events with such a wonderful friendly attitude! Thank you so much girls! We love you, too!:)

Hi Michelle,
Thanks for the inspiring 6 months I had in your team. It was a journey of joy and celebrations. Working with you is a real blessing.. and I feel that I found a true friend at the other side of the world.
thanks for all the support you gave me!

Claire said...

Thanks for a wonderful 6 months Michelle and all my lovely teamies and here's to the next 6 months :-)
I'm going to miss our departing mermaids but blogland is a small place and I'm sure we'll all keep in touch.
Your images are a real pleasure to work with and I get so much inspiration from all the mermaids. I think most importantly though I'm so lucky to have made such wonderful friends are part of this team and I'm looking forward to making some more when our new mermaids arrive
