Patties Creations Design Team

 "Babies, Babies, Babies Every Were"
Hello, little old me again with lots of things and a card to share with you this afternoon. Can you remember a couple of weeks ago i shared a baby card, and that i was feeling a little old as my children's friends all seem to be having babies. Emily's best friend Sophie and her husband have had their baby. A very cute little chap called Alfie-James. I knew i had to get a couple of baby cards as lots of babies due before Easter. On my travels for gorgeous Digital images i came across a little etsy shop called Pattie's Creations. I found a perfect image but the baby was wearing a Santa hat. I ping over an image to Pattie on the off chance she had any thing similar. I received a lovely message offering to draw me another with out the hat. Excellent customer service you have to agree. To cut a very long story short Pattie and I hit it off and I am know on her design team. I am so honored to be on a team with such talented designers. Please pop over to the the Pattie,s Creations Challenge blog and see what lovely things they make. The current challenge is an any thing goes, and i will be joining them on their next challenge.
