You Are Amazing - Design Team Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends! Today we have a surprise for our fearless leaders, Tara and Rick, the owners of the Seven Hills Crafts store.

As most of you will have noticed, Tara and Rick have launched a complete rebranding of what used to be "Make The Day Special", with the major update being a completely new website for the store. Now, I won't bore you with all the technical details, but let me tell you that this was a monumental effort because all the stamps, dies, inks, etc. that we covet so much have to be added by hand. All 4,000+ of them. If you get bored after working on a complicated spreadsheet after an  hour, imagine how this must have felt :)

So, we – the Design Team – wanted to say "thank you" to Tara and Rick for the amazing work they have done over the christmas holidays and for continuing to bring all those fantastic US crafting supplies to us here in Europe. They are such an essential part of the crafting community!

To celebrate them both, we have created a few cards which are hopefully in their mailbox today. Here's a sneak:

Please visit the blogs of the Design Team to see the full cards. And leave Tara and Rick a nice comment on the blog here – I am sure they'd love to hear from you! Thank you for supporting Seven Hills Crafts!
