Getting nowhere fast..and great news and more great news

I'm struggling to get a card made today...I struggled to get a card made yesterday...I'm hoping I'm not going to stuggle to get a card made tomorrow! The rest of my day is filled with cleaning and cooking because I've got some very special visitors today. My cousin (3rd I think) is coming over for dinner tonight with her two kids and guess what??? I've never met them!!! She's over visiting family and my big sis (she's only met her once years ago) gave her my details and she's staying just 30 minutes from me. I've spoken to her Kerrie...yup same name as me but spelled differently...a couple of times and she sounds lovely so here's hoping it will be a good night.
I've got some really great news to share with you. You know how Jeanie aka The Spotted Chick is now my Guest Designer? Well, when I was going over her comments I noticed one from Meahni. Now there's not too many people I know (none!) with that name so I knew it could only be Meahni from Animal Factory and she left a lovely comment for Jeanie's Magnum card. I mentioned in an email to Jeanie how pleased I was to see Meahni's comment because I love her work. Well didn't Jeanie tell me they were good friends and if I wanted she would suss Meanhni out to see if she wanted to be a Guest Designer too!!! IF...hello Jeanie???!!!! So my great news is......Meahni is on board to be a Guest Designer!!!!!!!!! Yaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!! Make sure you go on over and check out her blog. Not only are her cards beautiful she is a lovely, funny, warm person and I'm so happy she has agreed to design for LCI :-D Both Jeanie and Meahni are part of my DT but will be doing so at their own pace as both have a lot of committments and full time jobs!!
So as not to leave you without some eye candy I wanted to show you a 'card' that Lisa emailed to me last week. She made this fabulous replica of a Channel handbag and look who's got pride of place on the's only Shopping Nikki!!! You can check out Lisa's blog Mess2Magic to see how she did it.

It was originally Tams that planted the DT seed with Lisa putting her two cents worth in so I've them to thank for this. I've already had a few 'applicants' for a DT position...LOL...sounds like you're applying for a high powered position in a major conglomerate (000h...isn't that a big word lol...not sure where that came from rofl)!! Thank you to everyone who has sent emails. If I haven't replied to you I promise I will in the next day or two. Hmmm...maybe it's not a DT I should be looking for but a PA....any takers??!!!

Catch ya later x

PS More good news...the stamps are arriving tomorrow so you should get yours Thursday/Friday!!!

Have a great evening - it will be wonderful to meet your cousin.
Take care
Lisa ;)

Design team is a fabulous idea and I would've loved to apply but unfortunately I don't have a Blog. Never mind any time you need some cards made I'd be happy to help out, you'll have seen my cards at Craft World. Hope you have a great time with your cousin.
