I’ve been contemplating bringing in more hostesses full time and after finding them and giving them some of my tips I totally surprised myself and them too I think…I had planned to stay with the new hostesses through June then decided after a couple days of migraines that the year is coming to an end and so are my challenge hostess days. I’ve been the SC hostess for six years and I'm ready to move on!

Migraines are still an issue for viewing the screen but have been better this last half of December and on a more fun note - I’ve made commitments to friends that will take up one or two afternoons most weeks and I know we’ll have fun during our stamping sessions where I guide them through the card making process.

I’ve met a lot of wonderful stampers while being hostess and I enjoyed bringing you a new layout each week.

I am turning the challenge over to three talented stampers who will do a fine job for you and I’ll introduce them with links to their gallery.

Toy/Holly

Happy Stamping this week with a layout borrowed from a scrapbook page in a store ad! I’ll be seeing you in the gallery…enjoy your stamping time everyone and have a great New Year!

I didn’t get a card done this week so our examples come to you from:

Roxie......it is with mixed emotions that I write this....

First, I am so thrilled that you have put up with us for six years.....AND have managed to challenge us each week with absolutely fabulous sketches. I also appreciate the fact that you shared not only your cards....but also your methods and 'tricks' through your card descriptions. I have learned a lot from you. The sketch challenge treasury of sketches is a place I visit often when 'stuck' and looking for ideas.

However......I understand why you are 'retiriing' and know that you have left us in good hands. Sketch challenges are my absolute fav, so I am glad that your 6 year tradition will continue.

I look forward to 'playing' with you in all the challenges.....and look forward to your future creations that will inspire and motivate us.

Relax, my friend........

hugs
joanne

Love ya Rox! Thanks for everything... Take it easy.
Thanks to the 3 taking the reins!

Sad to see you go Roxie. You've been an AMAZING Challenge Hostess. Thanks so much for all the hard work and effort you have put into making this one such a well played challenge. You've brought some very talented stampers on board to take over, but they will have big boots to fill!!!!

Thanks SO much!.........now off to play

Thanks for doing a great job on the sketch challenges Rox. Have a great New Year's & hopefully your migraines leave you alone.

TreasureOiler 12-27-2011 06:31 PM

Thank you for all you have done Roxie! It was YOU that got me hooked on SCS all those years ago! Sketches were a starting point and without them, I'd have been lost.
I understand your need to move on, especially with the migraines. I do hope you find some relief from them soon.

Best wishes to you for a wonderful 2012!!!

I look forward to the three new hostesses and know that they'll bring us much inspiration too!

Roxie, I'm so glad that you are doing what you need to do now. I'm very sad to see you go. After 6 years though, it is time for a change. I hope that this change makes the migranes less frequent. Blessings to you and thank you for all you've done for us here on SCS.

Roxie - I couldn't have said it as eloquently as Joanne has! But I agree with everything she said - so thank you from me! And you have left us with 3 awesome designers so thank you for that too!
Hugs, Harriet

Roxie

I'm so sorry to see you go. I didn't often post a challenge card on here but I always look forward to wednesdays and it's my first stop on the computer every week. I've saved all the sketches in a folder on my computer and use it constantly as a reference. Your cards are always amazing and you are an inspiration.

As a migraine sufferer myself I can understand how difficult you find the computer...or anything at all while suffering an attack.

Thank you for being an inspiration and God Bless all that you do in the future.

Love Dawn x

Zbear1 12-27-2011 10:22 PM

I didn't get to play very long...but I did appreciate the sketches....it was a fun thing to do !! I'm glad it will be continued. Thanks for all you have done and I hope this decision will help you to feel better. I will miss you !!

What she said! How can I say it any better. Sad to see you go, but I know you'll still be 'here'. Welcome to the new hostesses.

Sweet, dedicated, GIVING, Roxie: You have left your mark on this site and on our hearts as you have poured time into all of our hobby in this very specific area that so many of us look forward to checking out each week (more than once, your layout has brought life to an image I just couldn't figure out how to get onto paper) whether we get the time to play or not:) Thank you for your faithfulness to us through good times and not so good (you just never know what may be going on beyond the screen world sometimes!!) Bless the year ahead of you and I know you will be an amazing IRL guide to the gals you have committed to taking through the card making process just as you've taken us through so many sketches and broadened our scope that way :) Hugs~Michele

kittie747 12-28-2011 02:45 AM

Rox, Thank you for all your hard work and dedication in bringing us the Sketch Challenge each week. I have been playing in this challenge with you since 2005 and will miss you very much. am comforted knowing you will still be here taking part in the daily challenges with us. I know you are turining the challenge over to very capable ladies who will serve proudly but they have some mighty big shoes to fill. Hugs, Kittie

Rufie 12-28-2011 03:05 AM

thanks for all you've done and all the people you've inspired, thanks to your sketches my cards have improved immensely. Enjoy your free time and I pray your migraines improve. You certainly deserve a break and some good health. Thanks Rox.

Jojot wrote so elegantly for us all. I agree too. This has always been one of my favorite of the challenges since coming to splitcoast in 2004.Thank you for keeping it alive and interesting for us all. Have a wonderful new year, enjoying your new ventures and good health to you. You will be missed.

schirmcat 12-28-2011 03:56 AM

Oh Roxie, I am glad that you will be enjoying new stamping adventures, but your sketch challenges will be missed! Although I haven't been able to play very much this past year, one of your sketch challenges was the very first challenge that I entered here and you got me hooked on SCS! If it wasn't for that, I might not even be stamping anymore!! So thanks so much for all of your hard work and dedication to this website! You've picked some very special stampers to take over the reigns, too :)

BEST WISHES and THANK YOU!!!!!

BarbieP 12-28-2011 04:07 AM

Roxie, I want to thank you so much for all the inspiration you have given me over the past 2 1/2 years I have spent on SCS. If it had not been for the wonderful sketches you gave us week after week, year after year, I would have been lost for ideas. I know you have left us in the hands of 3 very talented ladies, but you will be missed.

Again, thank you, Roxie. I wish you a Healthy and Happy New Year!

eured99 12-28-2011 04:20 AM

Roxie....6 years! Wow! You have done such an awesome job and have been so kind to newbies like me who started just a few years ago! I completely understand your decision, but please know you will be greatly missed. I sub to your blog so I can at least keep up with your latest creation. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into this! It is a much better challenge because you were here! I thank you for sending us the three very creative ladies to continue this challenge!

luvs2stamp2 12-28-2011 04:48 AM

Roxie, thanks for all that you have done. Coming up with challenges week after week is a challenge in its self. I'm a very simple stamper, but with your challenges I've come out of my shell a little bit more. Relax and stamp.
