Clearly Besotted Design Team

I am overwhelmed by all you messages of support.  And stunned.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

It is with much pleasure & immense pride (not to mention a smidgen of smugness, because they are THAT amazing lol) that I introduce to you the Clearly Besotted Design Team....


I know, how lucky am I right?  When I first approached these 5 ridiculously talented & creative ladies, I had my fingers crossed that a couple of them would join the team, so imagine my shock (& delight) when I bagged them all lol  There are no words to express my gratitude to these ladies for lending their talents to my fledgling company & I fully acknowledge that I'm the privileged one here.

It's not much but I wanted to send them all a little something....

 Heart Dish - The White Company / Chocolates - Hotel Chocolat

Close up of the card....

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Butterfly Wishes' / Tools - Spellbinder Nestabilities 'Lacey Squares'; MFT Die-namics 'Sentiment Strips'; Provocraft Embossing Folder 'Distressed Stripes'

My shop will be opening at 12:00 GMT today & I'll be back then with some Blog Candy to celebrate....in the meantime I have the washing to put on & a bit of ironing to do - business as usual! :)

I can't begin to say how generous and {as always} thoughtful this gift was! The card is beautiful too <3.

It is a real privilege to be a part of this amazing team and so exciting to be embarking on this adventure for you right from the start - I think it's going to be a huge hit - hope you've cleared your schedule for the next few weeks hun?!

Wow that's quite a team! Talk about talent. I can't wait to see the flood of inspiration that's going to follow.
Are you sure you don't want to open your shop like now? I don't know if I can wait much longer! I'm so excited :)
B.t.w there will always be a cupcake waiting for you should you swing by The Netherlands. With the success of your new store perhapps a red carpet too.
Maybe I can provide the cupcakes at the first Clearly Besotted retreat. A gal can dream.
I wont wish you luck, you don't need it.
Catch ya later (at 12:00 to be precise)!

Cathy Weber said...

Such a cute card Stephanie...sweet little butterfly on the woodgrain background...as soon as I saw it I thought with a different sentiment it would make a really good sympathy card too with the black, kraft and the butterfly.

Michelle said...
