There is someone very special i would like to say a great big THANKS too.... its our friend Jenni!
Jenni has sadly decided to step down from the design team to concentrate on her very own personal venture.
As most of probably know, Jenni has her very own range of digital stamps and would like more time to spend on her talent! Please pop by her store and have a look around, there is images to suit every occasion and her work is stunning. Here is the link to her store, Cardmadfairy's Creations
and her challenge blog, Cardmadfairy's Digi Days
Thank You Jenni for sharing all your creations with us and also for all the times you sponsored our blog.
We all wish you the very best of luck for the future!
