Good Morning Everyone,

Wow, do I have some fab news today.  I'm really excited and happy to give you some news I've been keeping under wraps (with great difficulty) for several weeks now.  I have been invited to join a brand new Design Team for Snazzy Stamping and Scrapbooking Ltd.!  I first discovered this lovely company and the fabulous stuff they sell two years ago at the Artisan show and saw them there again last year.  I 'spent' quite a long time watching and enjoying Val's demos and then did a different kind of spending using my plastic friend, lol!  Since then I have kept an eye on their website waiting and hoping for an online shop and it was on one of my 'web checks' that I saw the DT call.  I decided to apply and was completely taken by surprise and very thrilled when I was offered a place on the team.

Unfortunately Val and Don, the owners of Snazzy's are experiencing some technical difficulties with the online shop so have had to delay that launch for a short time but have decided to go ahead with the launch of the brand new Design Team Blog.  The blog is opening with an introductory post from each of the four DT members starting today with our illustrious and very talented DT Co-ordinator, Gillian, with my post tomorrow, Paula, whose work I have long known and admired, on Saturday and last but most definitely not least, Astrid on Sunday.  On Monday, Gillian will kickstart the posts of the projects we have been making and we do hope that you will pay us a visit, be inspired by our creations and leave us a comment.

I'll leave you with a little taster of something that will be revealed in my post tomorrow and hope to see you on the new blog.

Lesley  Xx

Lovely stamps - including the fabulous Chapel Art ones.
