Hope you're happy and healthy today and thank you so much for stopping in for a visit today. We want to let all our followers know that effective Oct 1st, our very own Jessica will be leaving us as a Design Team member. After much deliberation and thought she has decided to leave the team. Although we are saddened with her departure, Jessica has been pursuing her talent with her graphic arts and has been working on designing her own line of rubber stamps. Check them out HERE and HERE. With her upcoming wedding and being a young mother with many demands, she has only so much time in her day. We wish her many successes as she explores other avenues of her creativity, we will miss her unique style of her handmade cards, but she did say she would come back as a special guest sometime :) With Jessica departing, we had a position open on the Midnight Madness Design team. Carol our Sept GDT has become very involved with multiple projects including our coming Blog Hop on October 16th. So we have asked Carol to stay on board with us till the end of the year. Together with our team, we are planning some amazing things to come to the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenges and blog for your enjoyment. We will be announcing our October Guest Dive on Thursday and will then be on a search for our November Diva.
