I am officially on a break. 20130725-120340.jpg I know it seems very strange that I should blog on the first day of my break, but here’s the thing… after Paislee Press, some really big opportunities opened up for me, but like most things in life they came with their own timeframes. I didn’t want to say no to them, but it all had to be done by yesterday. Lord help me, I was up until 1am some nights trying to get it all together. There was a fantastic moment there too, when a lapse in concentration saw me cut a photo in half, when I was just trying to trim a white border. Did I mention how much I love fiskar’s cutters? Mine survived a trip to the wall and then the floor in quick succession. I love my blog and its readers very much, but in the little time I did have to write, I often felt overwhelmed and exhausted. I didn’t really want that coming through in my posts. Thankfully that’s all behind us now and I can finally tell you I have four surprises for you! Yay! One a day for the next 4 days. How does that sound?

Right, well let’s begin with something very near and dear to my heart. Earlier this week I was announced as the newest member of the ‘Give a Girl a Stamp’ design team! I love Kellie and her stamps to bits and I really pride myself on only working with brands I truly adore, so this was a fantastic fit for me! Check out this cute little aeroplane stamp: 20130725-113441.jpg If you would like to see my Week 29 spread, which includes this card, head over to the Give a girl a… Blog P.S. you should totally buy this stamp set!
