Design Team - One Year Anniversary!


Hello everyone! It's Bibi (owner of Rubber Dance) here today. I can't believe it's been a whole year already since my very first Design Team started working for Rubber Dance! And what a GOOD year it has been!! 

I was extremely lucky to find such nice and talented women who were willing to make artwork in exchange for stamps! And what do you know - they think they are lucky, too! It's a win-win situation for us all, but between you and me,  (I'm leaning forward, whispering ...), I am the luckiest of us all, no doubt!!
I couldn't have kept this blog so active and full of awesome artwork and tutorials all on my own, nor would I have been able to spread the word about my stamps like my DT has on their own blogs and other social media - and a few paper publications, too, plus lots and lots of video tutorials on youtube. Did you know you can find all the video tuts in one place right here? Now you do, but go back and look at those videos later because right now you have to look at these fine ladies, who'll all stay on my DT during this next term, August 1st to January 31st, 2016 (and hopefully much longer after that ....).

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you have already met and see the work of the first six chicks - Katy, Gabriele, Susanne, Helen, Majo, and Irit. Brand new on the team are Anita and Gail, who both live in Norway. You may perhaps know these two women by their blog usernames, Niti and Ionabunny! :-)  They will be posting on my other blog, which is in Norwegian, but I'm sure you'll see their artwork here once in a while, too - so please give them a very warm welcome, and a happy continuance to the good ol' six! ♥





If you want to read more about these FAB women, please go to this page where you'll find their bios, or drop by their blogs and simply admire their work!

Rubber Dance Design Team Blogs:





From the bottom of my heart, a BIG thank you to all my DT members for all the work you do, for your support and for always cheering me on, for believing in me and for loving my stamps! You are THE BEST!!!!!

It's almost like a speech at the Oscars here, but bare with me (I'm almost done), for I also want to thank all our loyal blog readers for your lovely comments, and to all my lovely customers and those who have won our challenges and giveaway and blog about the artwork you've made with my stamps, and to all of you who join our monthly challenges and thereby also help spreading the word. The blogland grapevine is growing and baring fruit- so thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!! ♥

I honestly cannot express how grateful I am, but perhaps I can show you by having a giveaway? I hadn't prepared for one, but I can be spontaneous - so here goes: Out of the comments left on this post, I'll randomly pick out TWO winners who will get to choose a whole set from the new stamps that will be released in a few days. How's that? I can announce the winners when I post about the new stamps on Sunday, August 9th. My goodness, I must be having a temporary strike of genius, 'cause that way you HAVE to check back and look at my new stamps, too! *grins*
This giveaway is open to anyone, worldwide. Just leave a comment below and you're in! :-)

Till next time: Be super good to yourself.

XOX,
Bibi
