The April release countdown teasers start today and we are super duper happy that the truly lovely Francine Vuillème is once again guest designing for us.

Also joining us this month is the absolutely fabulous Kitty Day.  Kitty has been a firm favourite of ours for longer than we can remember so needless to say we feel incredibly lucky to have her guest designing in April.

There are six new stamp sets coming on the 5th of April and today we're introducing two stamp sets called Brighter Days and Freshwater Friends.
