Thanks to all who applied to our DT Call

If you are here for the blog candy go here.

I want to thank all who applied to our First Design Team Call. Over 60 of you applied to be Fussy and Fancy Girls. Sadly we will not be able to have all of you on our DT. It will be a difficult job for us to sort through all of your blogs and narrow it down to a handful of you. I personally have looked and each of your blogs already, so I know you are all very talented paper crafters. Thanks again, we appreciate you all.

EDITED to add the DT call is over as of yesterday. Sorry for any misunderstandings.

Everything is Okay Now!

Mr. Linky is back--we have our list of links back, thanks to help from Lorraine at Simon Says Stamp Challenge! You're an angel, Lorraine--THANK YOU! Big hugs! And hugs to all of you for your patience, and for not laughing at us!

Stay tuned--we will announce our blog candy winner on December 11! Good luck! Then we will post a new blog candy!

Mrs. Stinky has run off with our Linky!

Some how all the links in our blog candy post disappeared. We feel horrible about it because there were nearly 250 of you who used Mr. Linky for a chance to win. We are trying to see if we can pull the links back up but if not we need to pick the blog candy winner a different way. We are open to suggestions, but ultimately we will be the ones to decide the fairest way to pick a winner. We will post again tomorrow letting you know what we decide to do, sorry for the inconvenience.
