Hurricanes..........


Before Hurricane Irene roared into my life Hurricane Lesley did.  Lesley Croghan that is - yep that Always Playing With Paper gal.  She is one amazingly energetic, enthusiastic and creative lady!  When I received an e-mail asking me to be part of her new Design Team I was so honored!  Freshly Made Sketches will officially debut next Wednesday.  You can go there to meet the Design Team and get a preview of what is to come. It's all about clean designs :)


Lesley is also responsible for my new look!  I love the banner she put together for me using symbols for each season!  When I suggested changes to the design she willingly did them - then I had to write her back and say - oh your look was much better!  If she does a banner for you - trust her!


Normally I would send her this lovely thank you card and write a sweet note - but Lesley I am in a crunch here.  This is your thank you card but it has now officially become #84 and put in the basket for the library.......I found out I have to make 120.......will be singing extra verses to that song!

That Lesley IS pretty fantastic, I will agree! :) Your card is gorgeous, as always, Linda! I just love the detail you add while keeping the design stream-lined. You are making 120 of these? Yikes!! How do you do it?? ...and can you share some tips! ;) Hugs!

Beautiful! I love that dp, haven't cut into mine yet 'cause it's just too scrumptious. And congratulations on being on another DT! Whoo hoo! I'll have to try to play there sometime.

Linda I absolutely LOVE Botanical Gazzett and I will miss that DSP! I did get it in MDS, so might have to print my own!
Your card is just lovely as is your new look. Lesley did my make-over too!

CONGRATS on being on yet another DT! I KNOW they will be so happy to have you and I can't wait to add it to my favorites list! Hugs.
