DT Faves Showcase and A Little Announcement...

Good morning, and Happy Friday! We have some inspiration for you today, with each designer using one of their favorite images! Thank you to everyone who played along with us the last two weeks in the challenge, the winners and new challenge will be announced next Friday!

Which brings me to today's post - which is a little different as we transition to a new format! Tammy will be taking a much needed hiatus, and for the time being needs to carve out a little more time for her family. What that means for ADFD is...
  • There will not be any new image releases for a while. (although Tammy reserves the right possibly surprise us with a freebie here and there...)
  • The shop, which contains over a thousand images, will remain open.
  • We will have a monthly challenge starting in August, and you may enter 4 times per month, 
  • Each month's challenge winner will be a guest for ADFD the following month and receive four images from the ADFD shop to use for their posts!
  • The ADFD Facebook page & ADFD FB community will continue it's mission to grow and share gorgeous creations.
  • The DT will share their ADFD inspirations in their own posts on the blog, several time a week!

See, that's not so bad. And one day when time allows, Tammy will pick up her drawing pencils, and we'll all still be here - hanging out and having fun coloring and sharing when she does!

And now on to this week's beautiful creations from the Design Team...

Love the papers on Cathy's gorgeous card...

Wow, Cindy's use of embossing is fantastic!

Jen's simple and elegant card is amazing...

Gorgeous layout Tanja, and your coloring and paint splats are perfect!

 Have a wonderful weekend & we'll see you next week!


  1. gorgeous projects by the team, as always. will be here to support ADFD no matter what. it will always and forever be one of my ab fab fave stores. :) hugs to Tammy and the team!
    enjoy what remains of your summer!

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Jennifer! I know Tammy appreciates your support and so do we! Looking forward to your entries. I am super-excited to reach back into the ADFD archives and play with Tammy's great work. My first post is next week, so stop back! Hugs, Cathy

  2. I'm glad she'll be taking some time with her family. Everyone deserves a break. ADFD has some of the loveliest images. I have literally spent hours looking at them in the store.
    I hate that it's going to a monthly challenge but I understand about needing to get some R and R. Running a blog takes a lot of time. I'm looking forward to the next challenge. How fun that the winner will be asked to be the guest designer for the following month.

  3. Family is so important! ADFD images are timeless, I'm so glad the shop is remaining open :)

  4. Enjoy your family time Tammy. It's the most important thing in life. So many beautiful images already in store. More than enough to keep us going for quite some time! xoxo

  5. Not going anywhere! Tammy is worth waiting for.

  6. Everyone needs, and deserves, a little break now and then so, enjoy yourself Tammy and know we'll be here waiting for you when you're ready.
    As always, the DT's have created some gorgeous cards, thanks for the inspiration. Looking forward to the new format. :)
