The Angel Co. Final Farewells Blog Hop

With the recent closing of TAC - Angels over at PaperWings have joined together for a Final Farewell Blog Hop.  I started with The Angel Company back in 2009 and have enjoyed each and every moment.  Not only was it a way to spend more time with my mom ;) but it was a great way to meet new people! Below are some of my favorite cards that I've made with past TAC stamps - some old and some new!

Stamps - Summer Boys, Savvy Sayings
Paper - Pop Rockz

Stamps - Spring Flowers, A Blessing to Me

Stamps - Circles & Sentiments
Paper - Miss Moxie

Stamps - Cheery Thoughts
Paper - Tutti Frutti

Stamps - Squirrley Girl
Paper - Pop Rockz

This last card is one I made with one of my favorite sets, Enjoy the Ride, from the last catalog. It's hard to imagine going on without such amazing stamps and products - however, we will all find a way to get by! My time with TAC has been awesome and had I known then what I know now I still wouldn't change a thing! Hope you enjoyed my cards - now it's time to enjoy the rest of the Blog Hop.  Click on each of the links below and check out all the other Angels creations! Prepare to be amazed!

TAC is hanging up their wings

As some of you may already know, we have recently received very sad news from Mischelle at The Angel Company. Below is the message we received as well as what is posted on The Angel Company home page.

It is with great sadness that I must announce we are hanging up our wings. These past several years our industry has faced enormous challenges and as a result, we have seen many companies close their doors. We continued to hope we could see The Angel Company through this recession and back into prosperous days and we held onto this hope as long as we could.

One of the largest challenges affecting each of us is our industry not being able to support all of the direct sales companies in our field. Even in a healthy economy, we are a niche market trying to compete for a very limited number of distributors. As a small company, this has been a grueling challenge for us. Times are tough for everyone ~ in direct sales and retail environments.

I would like to thank each of you for being a customer and Angel these past years. Indeed, it has been a pleasure to serve you.


I plan to continue blogging and sharing with you my creations in hopes that it will continue to inspire you! We are also planning (Mary & I) on continuing our "hostess group" with just a few minor changes. If you would like to know more about this group or are interested in joining let me know!

Thank you all for making my time with The Angel Company a success and I am grateful for the friendships made while being a part of this company.

Please note - previous links to TAC including specials etc. will no longer work.
