I'm soooo excited!!!


Two posts in one day that's a first for me. They are both really important posts, so if you are reading this one, make sure you scroll down and read the next one too......it could be to your advantage!

There's a little story behind this post. I'm a bit of a blog lurker, I do leave comments sometimes as I know how important it is to leave comments but I'm always so pushed for time that I don't always comment when I really would like to. Anyway, I had my eye on a particular blog for some time as I really liked her work and her blog is always funny and very entertaining. The author of this blog......drum roll please.....Linda Elbourne. If you are not a follower of her blog, you need to be, it's just fab. Anyway, I loved what she had done with Grungepaper, Wendy Vecchi's and Paperartsy stamps and baked bean tins. I began to wonder what if these were done in metal? So to cut a very long story short, I approached Linda and asked if she would be interested in doing a spot of design work for me. It's now official, Linda Elbourne designer extraordinaire, is my first design team member. Look at what she made!!!! Hop over to Linda Blog, there's a link on my sidebar, she will be posting details about how she made these babies. This is not the only one she made...you should see the others....my favourite one will follow soon. Is this very clever....or VERY, VERY CLEVER?

I was only saying the other day how you do all your designing yourself and how much work it must be. Does this mean you get to have some time off now? (LOL) Linda obviously seems a woman after your own heart. Those flowers are gorgeous.
