Debra James, Team Yumi - Mahalo!!

****DON'T FORGET, CH #30 ENDS TOMORROW AT 9PM!!****


Hey everyone!

Thank you all so much for the lovely outpouring of kind words and love.  We really appreciate all the support and will certainly let everyone know if the circumstances change.  ((HUGS))

Welcome to our "Thank you showcase" featuring our wonderful design team.  I will miss them all so very much.  They always delighted us with their creativity and designs.  I hope you will continue to follow each and everyone of them as they bring so much inspiration to each project they share.  You can certainly come back to this blog to get inspiration and ideas, just please make sure to give our team the credits they deserve.

Today will be dedicated to our Team Yumi gals with a showcase of some of their projects both older and new ones that you have yet to see.  Being a part of a proactive team I was kept on my toes with some of our gals who love to work ahead, so the challenge schedule needed to be set.  The bad part is that with the challenges now closed (no, don't worry challenge #30 ends tomorrow) the team didn't get to personally share their gorgeous creations.  The good part is that with their permission I get to show them to you!  I hope you enjoy these beautiful works of art as much as I did...

Our first Yumi gal is Debra James, from I Dream of Color. She was only with us for a very short time but what an impact she made on us with her beautiful coloring and whimsical card designs.  I hope you'll stop by her blog and become a follower.  She's quite amazing, very friendly and one of the sweetest ladies I get to know.  So glad I can say we were on the same team if only for a little while. :)  Enjoy the showcase of some of her older projects and some new never before seen ones...

I have to say, Debra's creations have a wow factor that just can't be beat! So happy you were able to show-case the creations she had waiting in the wings to share.

I love the simplicity of the background, the pops of color, and Debra's genius and artistic way of coloring not to mention her design aesthetic!!

I have to say your coloring is so AWEMAZING that it brings anything you do to life! Always making me go "woah" and "Ahhs" on your fresh and pop of color choices and layouts. It was nice knowing you and am definitely following you ;)
