On behalf of Donna and all the Design Team (Andrea, Andreja, Carol, Collette, Dawn, Denise, Dorothy, Jacqui, Julieanne, Kym (me), Lozzy, Natasha, Pauline and Tiziana) we thank you for supporting the Bearly Mine Designs Store for nearly 8 years and for all of you that entered our challenges.

Personally I would like to thank Donna for making such gorgeous papers for the Design Team and crafters to use.  She is one talented lady.

I would also like to thank the members of the Design Team, past and present, for helping to promote Donna's papers and for making such amazing challenge cards/creations and inspiration posts.

It is hard to say good-bye but it is time.

Thank you all for support

Final inspirational post by Jules

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is looking forward to the New Year.

I'm hoping that 2015 works out to be a better year then this one as it certainly wasn't the best and to be finishing with the closure of Bearly Mine Designs I can't wait for what 2015 brings.

So I decide not to finish off with a card but an Off The Page project, it's something I've had sitting in my craftroom I'm sure for a couple of years just waiting for the right time.

I've used my favourite sets of digital papers from Bearly Mine Designs - Mixed Media & Mixed Media 2 but as you are now all aware the store is closing on the 31 December 2014 so you better make sure if you want these papers to head on over there in the next two days otherwise they are gone forever.
Donna is currently having a huge closing down sale
I would like to thank Donna for this amazing opportunity of being on her Design Team for almost 2 years now and it's been awesome and I've made some life long cyper friends through out this time. I've also seen some amazing work entered into the challenges and this is something I will definitely miss but I hope to start entering into the challenges myself so I will also be still finding inspiration in cyperspace.
I wish Donna the very best for what ever she chooses to do with herself now and I look forward to still seeing her work out and about when she creates.
Wishing everyone the best for 2015.
Happy crafting
