Trendsetter Farewells

The current design team term is about to end on the first, and we have a few designer's that are leaving us...and we are so sad. 

We have already said goodbye to two of them: Debby Hughes and Wendy Ramlakhan.

Debby, you are a CAS simple GODDESS. We will miss your stunning creations, and amazing talent. You put together clean and simple cards like all of us DREAM we can, and you make it look so easy. Thank you so much for your time with There She Goes. We will miss you terribly!

You may have noticed that Wendy left almost three month's ago, but I just can't make myself let go....I miss her! LOL! Wendy, your ability to color is OFF the charts amazing, and your layouts are just as inspiring. Not only is she an amazing artist, but she is an amazing mother and person. She is also a cookie thief, just ask Danielle. :)

Now, for the designers that our leaving us on the 1st: Candace Pearce,

For those of you that don't know, Candace started out as a AMAZING customer, and friend to There She Goes. We noticed her enthusiasm and talent, and had to make her a part of the team. We are sad to see her go, but only because we will miss her....she has SO much ahead of her (new job, new BABY, squeeeel!!) Thanks for being a part of the There She Goes family, don't be a stranger!!

Kim Teasdale is also leaving us this term, and I can't even begin to deal with how this makes me feel. I will miss your GORGEOUS designs, and AMAZING..and I do mean A.M.A.Z.I.N.G coloring. Beyond all that,  you are an amazing person, and a great friend. I know we will see you around, but you will always have a home here. So come home when you can! :)

We are also saying goodbye to Kelly Collins and Stephanie Muzzulin. It has been a joy working with both of you for the last 6 months. You both bring something special to the team, both with your card making, and with your amazing, and fun personalities. It has been an honor working with you, and we hope to see you playing in the challenges, and hanging out with us at our release parties. You will always be Trendsetters in my eyes.

Well, that's all the sad news I can pack into one blog post. :(
Stay tuned for our big announcement on Thursday, February 28th....you won't want to miss it!

Trendsetter Tuesday- Danielle Lounds

Our final Trendsetter Tuesday for this term, and Danielle Lounds...it's your turn!! I have been working with Danielle in one way or another since the beginning of my stamping career, and I have to tell you it has been an ABSOLUTE JOY working with her. She has grown so much as an artist, and is truly one of my FAVORITE stampers. Her designs are SO original, coloring amazing, and she always has some neat trick, or project she is showing. She is truly an artist, and having met her in person, I can say that she is one heck of a baker, lol!!!  


For her first card tonight, I decided to show off her Be My Valentine card from last release...isn't it AMAZING! Her colors and coloring, the super cute buttons, all of it is just TOO much fun!!


Her second card made me giddy, literally, I squealed out loud. I LOVE her coloring, and that paper...yum! It's so gorgeous. She really made Get In Gear look AMAZING!


Her next card features one of our older sets, You're a Hoot...and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! I would have never expected the colors on this one, but from the colors to the embossing...it's perfection!!


I normally only show three cards, but you have to see the close up detail on her card using Cute as a Button...all that shine, sparkle, and cutting...truly amazing!!!

Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to check out Danielle's blog and say hi!!
