The Store

Sunday, July 25, 2010
Well hello there crafters. Today is a very sad day. 1 - we are losing our lovely Susan as a creator for the store, but YAY!! she is staying on the DT and 2, it is my last day as a member of the team. I'm stepping down due to the fact that basically...there is no easy way to say it - my card making mojo has completely disappeared. I believe that as a DT coordinator I needed to lead from the front and be able to pick up the slack if anyone is on holiday etc but with no mojo, I'm having trouble picking up a pen let alone the slack. So it is with a heavy heart that I am leaving from what started out as both Stitchys and my baby. No falling out just so you know (they make me laugh too much to fall out with any of them hehehe), the girls here are the tops, creators and designers alike. I will miss doing this every other week, but I'm sure if my mojo does come back, I'll be about, but taking part this time as a challenger just like you guys.

Okay now, onwards to the fun stuff....THE WINNERS!!! Another fabulous response to last weeks challenge so here is the name of our lucky overall winner..............

Whoo hoo well done hunny, please contact Liz on so that she can sort out your goodies.
Now our Top 3 (in no particaular order just the way the RNG chose them)
1.  #98 Mary
2.  #67 Cheryl
3.  #38 Rhonda
Awesome ladies, please remember to snag your badges from the sidebar to display proudly on your blog.

All four of our lucky winners please email to get your prizes sorted

Now then, onto your inspiration and the deets for this week from our fab DT plus the talented Ali AKA Dragonlady. We'd love to see your interpretation (in whatever form) of Black, white and 1 other colour this week. Now lets kick it all off with Ali then shall we.

In a tribute to Susan, the girls have all used some of her scrummy papers on their DT project this week.

Now I hope you will go and check out these guys fantastic blogs and give them some love. Nothing from me this week unfortunately because of the mojo situation. I hope you'll continue to give this fab bunch of girls the support they deserve each week (I will be checking) and I wish my successor all the very best - I know you'll have fun. Now all that remains is for me to say for the last time (wipes away a tear from her eye), please leave your link with our linky widget so we can come round and leave you some love.
Take care everyone - I'll miss you all

Now that Sam is in Bed sleeping, I am going to add my little two cents here ;)

Susan even though you are leaving the store end of the team, you will still be here for the Design Team and I thank you very much for that...Your papers are lovely and soon as you have your store up and running, I wish you the best of luck ;)

Sam Sam Sam, my Sammy Girl, words cannot say the feelings that are soaring through my head right now...You know when we first started this blog together, it was our baby..that will never change, it will ALWAYS be our little baby lol...I know real life has to take precedence over the blog world, but I want you to know huni, you will only be a click away and beware, I am learning my way around facebook hahaha...
I wish you lot's of luck with your new adventure, please keep in touch, you will always be my #1 unique designer ;) I want you to know that Liz, Tammy & even ME made you a little tribute card.  You are not going to believe my luck, when I went to print out my digi, guess what, no ink!!!  Now does that sound like a Stitchy move or what lol.. So mine is digital hun, but I made it big enough for you to print out if you like...I will email it to you personally.
