My Last Speedy's Challenge

Yes, you read the title correctly - After careful consideration, I decided that coordinating Speedy the Cat's Blog Challenges for a year was enough (and my plate is pretty full lately). Sadly, I have decided to say good-bye.  This card is dedicated to all of you stampers who have at one time or another, played in Speedy's Challenges.  I appreciate the support you gave me. THANK YOU~
Appropriately, I am also hosting this last challenge - use a hat pin.  On my card, I used the pretty MFP set Bearded Iris.  Did you know Mark's Finest Papers carries gorgeous hat pins? I'm telling you, MFP has such an array of items -- they need to change the name to "Mark Has It All" ~ lol.
I would love to see you play in my last Speedy's Challenge -- I comment on everyone's card -- I always felt that was part of my job, supporting all the players.  [I know what comments mean to me!]
Thank you again, it has been a pleasure coordinating the Speedy the Cat's Design Team and challenges, and I will miss you all!
Thanks for stopping by~

What a beautiful card...and a surprise to go along. I'm sure you'll be missed at Speedy's Friends challenge. Sometimes, there is just too much on a person's plate.

Such beautiful colors. I love the stick pin.

I have often wondered how you do as much as you do, totally understand the full plate at times, your card is beautiful, hope we still see you and your talent around town....

Vicki, best wishes on your current and future stamping endeavors! You are one busy lady, and we'll miss your leadership on Speedy's Friends.

Your card today is stunning! The orange is so happy with all the white to let it pop! And the leaf pin is simply gorgeous!

Orange is often such an under used colour. You have used it to perfection on this card. Great flower! I'm sure Speedy and Friends will miss you, but good for you for trying to balance things out a bit :)

Speedy's Friends is a successful challenge due to your taking on the leadership of it.....now you can sit back and watch it grow without the 'work'...you can just 'play along' when you can.....

We will miss you, Vicki! Thank you for a gorgeous card, it has such a tropical feel (I know that's not what irises are all about!), that it reminds me of Canna flowers. Best of luck to you, sweetie!
