There isn't a normal release countdown this month, I think December is far too busy a time to be making demands on the already over worked Design Team!

And of course, the super duper Design Team are also in the mood for some teasing today!


I'd like to give another special mention to my baby sister Jenny, who is our stamp designer (she also processes orders, answers emails, maintains our website...okay I admit it, she does it all!).  It is only recently that I have given her a free rein to come up with her own ideas (& that's only because I was freeing up some of my own time!) which explains why in the last few months we've introduced an influx of sets consisting of beautifully drawn (& very cute!) characters, I really should have let her do her own thing a long time ago!

Well, that ironing pile's not getting any smaller by itself, spare me a thought while I battle through it ;)  Hope you have a great day, I know it will be better than mine! lol xoxo
