Yipppeeeee!!!!!!!! Elzybells madness.......edited list of DT members

Well have ya guessed or have ya been on Elzybells Blog....

I have made the first Design Team, and am very pleased to see that my good friends and fellow papertake weekly designers Dawn Wheeler and Stephanie Mayne have made it too.... well done girls !!! Yippeeee isn't it great....

Well I have had a fabulous year craft wise and one I shall never ever forget and will be truly humbled by it for the rest of me life........

I always thought that my cards were a little too simple, I am not an in yer face girl when it comes to creating, I'm not sure what ya call my style, I call it plain and simple!!! I always feel that less is more, I always worry if it's good enough and I never sit on me laurels, there are many crafters I truly admire, and always wished I were as good as them and now I have achieved my ultimate goal in crafting and thats to see me creations in print,I am sooo glad that I entered the competition now, I divered for so many years to do so and glad that I took the plunge, I am not one for badgering peeps or punting me creations, I get a little embarrassed by it all, I did it once and was flatly refused in not a nice way either and that kinda put me off, oh I knew she like my stuff she couldn't take her eyes of them, but perhaps I wasn't for her... but nevertheless her lack of tact hurt me very much and I swore to myself I shall never go down that road again.... and through this competition well it has opened up worlds I only dreamed of, it bought the people to me, and I can't explain the feeling of that, it's too overwhelming....

Elzybells was the first card comp I had ever won , and what a feeling too, to see my card on the net, and to win some super duper stamps to boot, well it made my day in more ways than one... and now to have been picked for the design team has topped my year off completely, those that know me personally will know of the struggle i have had for the past six years, how I have got through them sanely I will never know, but I will say crafting has helped me in the biggest way possible, from creating right through to the good friends ya meet....
