Hello talented friends!

Thanks for joining in on our blog hop yesterday...there's still plenty of time to comment for your chance to win one of the NEW December stamp sets - wohoooo!

We have an announcement to make.   

Heather has been going through some health issues and the recovery process has taken a toll on her creativity.  Since she can't foresee how she will feel in the upcoming year, she thought it was best to step down from our team to concentrate on getting better.  Heather was wonderful to work with and we will miss her sooo much!!  She will always be a part of our PS family and I feel fortunate to call her my friend.  I wish her the best.

This leaves an opening on our team.  Yes, this means that we have ONE spot to fill.  Oh’ how I wish I could add 10 designers to our team, but 5 is the perfect number for us at this time.

We have a great appreciation for our designers and we hope you consider trying out for our team.  We are looking forward to seeing your talent! onto another December sneak peek  :)

This crazy crab is from our new Chubby Chum Pals stamp set....of course the coordinating sentiment is included too (grin)...and the disguise is an addition to the crab.  I stamped it over his face and paper pieced the nose.  The scalloped edge was doodled.

Here are some other add-ons that are included with this quirky set:

The eyes are spaced just right on the Chubby Chum Pals set, but there are other Paper Smooches images that they will work well for as well.  The hats work great with many PS images!

Have a wonderful weekend friends!
big hugs,
