I must also thank the lovely Pat at Joanna Sheen for all her help as well - Pat you are a star xxxx

For those of you who didn't see the post when Kathe was last with us, here is a little bit about her and what she does -

I would like to say that I am a Independent Distributor with The Angel Company (TAC) and it is a direct sales company that manufactures and sells an exclusive line of rubber stamps, paper collections, and accessories for scrap-booking, card-making, and other paper craft projects. They maintain one of the Nation's most liberal angel policies, allowing their customers to not only use their purchased stamps for personal use, but for projects for profit as well. You will love our revolutionary Creative Cling™ Stamping System! This system is fast, easy to use and can maximize your storage space. I would love to invite you to visit my blog at http://www.katzdesignz.blogspot.com/ I sure hope to see you there really soon…

Thank you Kathe - it's nice to have you back with us xxx

On a sadder note. we have to say goodbye to out wondereful guest designers this week. I can't believe it's been 4 weeks since they joined us - how quickly it's gone!!! But a huge thank you to you all cos you've all been stars and you've done some wonderful work for us xxx

We'll have a new and fabulous GDT for you next week.
