Toot Toot!! and a Blog Hop ...

I have nearly burst with excitement during the last couple of weeks because of an email I got asking me if I would be interested in joining a new Design Team from ..............  Lori Boyd! Oh my goodness I just about exploded doing the excited dance as I replied to her email. Not only is Lori one of the sweetest people I know but she designs the cutest digital stamps (or you may have seen her rubber stamps here and here) and she makes gorgeous cards too.

So, there you have it - my exciting news! And I have a new badge to add to my list of people that I design for over there on the side of my blog


We thought a Blog Hop was in order as we are celebrating the new team as well as some new releases by Lori which can be found in Lori's shop here.

The whole Design Team are joining in and if you hop to each of them leaving a comment as you go you will go into the draw to win Lori's latest Grandparent and Bride & Groom stamps as well as 5 other digi's of your choice from Lori's shop. You have until Saturday night (midnight US time) to leave your comments on all the blogs to enter the draw

Andrea - that's me!
I have played with the Grandparents stamps but as I didn't need a Grandparent card - I actually needed to make a 40th birthday card for a man - I changed his trousers to jeans and gave him brown hair instead of grey, snuffed out the old lady and he instantly appeared 20 years younger! I wonder if this could work in real life? I could be onto a winner there :o)
