Thank you Card and Farewell to Tessa Wise!

Saying Thank you & Farewell to Tessa!

Did you receive some great Holiday gifts? It's time to get working on those thank you cards now! Today I am sharing a sweet little thank you card by Tessa Wise! Tessa created this adorable card using the "snow" pup from our Flaky Family stamp set. This set is meant for creating your own snow family but Tessa has shown us how you can take out just one image and make a non-holiday card with it too! She added in the "thanks" banner  and the little "so much" from the Winged Wishes stamp set.

I am sad to say that  - this card marks the LAST post for Tessa Wise as part of our Design Team at Newton's Nook Designs! We have really enjoyed having Tessa on our Team! She has been with us since day one! She started this journey with us on our very first Design Team about a year and a half ago -  and we've loved every minute! Her bright and colorful designs have really ALWAYS made us smile! We are so sad to see her go but we've enjoyed having her hang out with us for so long! We definitely wish her the very best as she continues to do fun things in the craft world and will definitely be checking out her blog - Crafty Girl Designs - often to say hello!

I thought it would be fun to re-share a few of my favorite cards by Tessa:
(although it was really hard to pick just a few since she has so many great ones)

This was one of the first cards Tessa created for us on her first month on the team! I still LOVE those patterned kitties! So adorable! The kitty image and sentiment are from Newton's Anticsthe very first "Newton" set we released!  Her card was first posted here.

This is still another of my Favs that Tessa Created. I just love the pink fox from the Sweetheart Tails stamp set paired with the fun grey, olive and teal. First posted here
 I just love the cute pink card with the snowman from the Frozen Friends stamp set. Such fun colors for a winter card! First posted here

 This card showcases some awesome watercolor skills by Tessa using the Love Grows stamp set! First posted here.

This card is a an awesome example of Tessa's eye for using with bright colors - I just love the color combo and bright colorful coloring on that kitty from the Newton's Birthday Bash set! First posted here.

I love the technique Tessa used for coloring with q-tips on this card using our Flirty Flamingos stamp set.  First posted - with video - here.

And a more recent favorite - I just love how Tessa cut around this snowman family from the Flaky Family stamp set  with such precise detail! So amazing! First posted here

Thank you so much, Tessa, for the awesome inspiration! We'll miss you!

Don't forget - if you love Tessa's work you can continue to find her great projects at her blog, Crafty Girl Designs!
