Phew!!!

The decisions have been made and boy was it a hard process! We received so many stellar applications that it was hard to narrow all the choices down. We did however decide on having two Guest Designers every two months beginning in March AND we will be starting a Featured Friday Stamper (every other Friday) beginning March 13.

Our first Guest Designers for March/April will be:

Debbie Seyer and Judith Rozema

Our first Friday Featured Stamper will be:

Michelle Seward

Be sure to stop back often at the DRS Designs DT Blog to check out these designers as well as some other well known SCS favorites we'll be featuring in the coming months, such as Miss Boo, Prchvs, dawnmercedes and resqbarbie to name a few!!

Thanks to everyone who submitted...if you were not selected this time around we hope you will join us in our next call.

See you soon...
