DYSU #85 - Buttons Blog Hop

Good morning everyone! We have some sad news here to share. One of our DYSU girls has to leave her term early. We are a group of girls that advocates for health & family first - so we support her decision! And she's always welcomed back as a Guest Designer. Although last week was her last week as an active DT, we wanted to give her a good send off! We enjoyed having her on the team with her beautiful creations, her wonderful cheerful spirit and her kindness. We will truly miss you, Meredith!

So let's have one more swoon over her creations, and introduce our next challenge:

Yes - we will miss this girl for sure! Thank you, Meredith, for your contributions to this team. 

This week we're shaking things up a bit. To give Meredith a good send-off, the DYSU team is organizing a blog hop today, so that each member can say their personal goodbyes. 

Also - please note that this week we're not drawing winners from the Mr. Linky pool, but from the DT's blogs, so make sure to comment. You never know who's blog we'll be pulling the winners from! 

Before we get to the blog hop, we would like to introduce our special Guest Designer Marcy. She's a girl we happen to know very well, because she used to be part of our DYSU family! Welcome back Marcy! Read on to get to know her...

Hi my name is Marcy Schwarz. I was a member of the original DT for DYSU and loved every minute of it. We are super excited at our home as we are expecting the arrival of our first grandchild at the end of August. I've put all my DT assignments on hold and have been concentrating on creating for the new little one.
I love all types of paper crafting but scrapping is my passion. I'm crazy about digital stamps. They are so versatile since you can change the size, reverse the image or basically alter it in any way. I use digital images in my scrapbooking all the time. They also make for very inexpensive embellies.
I miss the daily contact with my DT sisters, but I do keep an eye on them in cyber space!
My blog:

You will see Marcy's card along the blog let's get started, shall we? 

To kick things off we would like to showcase our teammate Rebecca's card who can't participate in this week's blog hop (we'll tell you why next week...yes, more news!)

I especially love how she cut out those hearts and backed it with patterned paper. 

Our first stop is Archana from Germany. See what she's up to! And in case you want the whole it is:
This week we have three sponsors to make our blog hop a special one:
