We now have a design team! :)

And what a team it is....I had to narrow it down from 25 amazing entries and with a little help from more than 130 people, I have done so. :) Thanks to each entry and to each person who voted. I asked for the top 5 to 7 cards and the top three cards appeared on almost everyone's list. What an accomplishment, Lissa, Lysa, and Emma. :)

While the voting was important, it was not the only deciding factor, as I visited blogs and weighed other factors as well. At this point, I wanted to only choose 5 members, but I ended up with 6 outstanding members. :) I also decided to offer some guest spots as so many more than those 6 were so spectacular.

If you were not selected for the team this time, please understand that this was a very difficult decision and this is just the first round. :) I hope you will consider participating at a later date and helping us build a strong place to share ideas and friendship, a place where we can all grow and have a reason to create with fun and unique images.

So without further ado, please meet the members of Tiddly Inkers, our first design team (in no order :D):

Emma http://emmalockley.blogspot.com

Lissa http://www.scrappynites.com
Lysa http://lysaq.blogspot.com

There are several people who didn't participate in the design team contest, but they provided great encouragement and many positive vibes...to all of you, thank you! :) I would list names, but I would miss the one I didn't want to...plus, you know who you are. :)

If you have time, please stop by each of the blogs and say congrats to each lovely artisan....All the cards really blew me away and it was tons of fun seeing all the creativity that our group has. :) I look forward to seeing lots more of it in the days ahead. :)

Our first challenge will be posted April 20 (mark your calendars :D) and as soon the download shop is completed, we will have our first blog hop filled with prizes....how fun! I can't wait. :)
