A Drum Roll Please...

Today we have the honour of introducing our newest Paper Sundae Girls, but first we sadly are saying goodbye to two more of our team-mates here at Paper Sundaes.

Our good friend Alica, who has been with us since the very start of Paper Sundaes, is saying goodbye to us.  I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Alica for sticking with us, and being such a wonderful and sweet team-mate and Sundae Girl.  Thank you Alica, from the bottom of our hearts!  It was our pleasure to get to know you better during our time together.  I hope you'll come back to visit us often!

Another amazing lady, Fiona, is also leaving us now.  Fiona is such an amazing lady, and any team she is on is very lucky!   I think Fiona set a record for 'Best Commenter of all time'.  Fiona, if I ever make it 'across the pond', expect a phone call to get together!  :)

Please take the time to stop by Alica and Fiona's blogs and leave them some love, they deserve it and so much more!

...... And now for our new Paper Sundae Girls......

I am so pleased to announce the newest additions to our Paper Sundaes team... (Please note:  Although using Magnolia Stamps was not in any way a criteria for selection, with our current Magnolia challenge we have decided to showcase Magnolia cards from the newest DT members.)




Congrats, ladies!  We are looking forward to getting to know you all!

Thank you to everyone who applied for our team.  I wish we could pick everyone!

Hugs,

Christine, Shana and the Paper Sundae Girls


PS - Don't forget about our current 'Magnolia' themed challenge!
