The BIG REVEAL blog hop...

Monday, April 1, 2013


I'm incredibly delighted and honoured to have been invited to join the
2013 Little Yellow Bicycle Design Team
along with an incredible line up of talented designers.


Each designer was asked to create a card with a 'Welcome' theme as an introduction piece for today's announcement and blog hop. So here's my card with a touch of Australia in the sentiment.


Not only does Little Yellow Bicycle announce their new design team today, they also reveal their new blog which you can view at the end of today's blog hop. And they are giving away prizes so don't forget to leave comments along the way.
Now you would have arrived from Eva Pizarro's blog
and now it's time to head over to:
Mou Saha

    1. Sabrina, you are right in saying that 'Melinda' isn't a very common name as I don't know of too many others. However, it's lovely that you shared with me that your eldest has the same name. :)
