OMG I am in awe!!!!!!!!!!


Well, after talking to none other than Kirsty Wiseman last week on the blower (telephone!), I received Patti Picklicious and a lovely set of Doodlebug Baby stamps (I have wanted them for ever), from the uber talented Mrs Wiseman and can I just take a moment to say.........................wow!
Now I do like my downloads and I have a lot, but they are mainly soft pastel, or light colours - great, but sometimes you need some Zing if you know what I mean?!  Zing, ting, ting, Patti is soooooo full of fab pattern and colour!  There are image stamps, titles and sentiments too, at £15 incl post it's amazing value.  
Hey maybe now we are on speaking terms I should be asking for commission?!  

Big plug from me though, because if you love colour and you like something different you will love it too!!   Find Kirsty's Patti CD Blog here

I made this card as soon as I got it and that wasn't easy as I am a bit snowed under as I mentioned before, but, I was itching to get going with it so.............!
I used the 'Choc Fudge Sundae' papers from the CD and the baby carriage from the Doodlebug stamps.  paper pieced and I shrank the papers cos I fancied making a tiny card (loving mini cards at the mo!). to make the image smaller (I'm on Mac BTW) I opened the image in Preview (the Mac image browser) chose print and then selected to print more than 1 image on my A4 page, as I hate to waste paper & card I chose 4 to a page as I know I'll use it all, I love it so!  Did the same with both papers, to make a mini version!

I was so chuffed when I emailed it to Kirsty & she asked if she could pop it on her Patti Blog!!!

It is there in all it's glory and I am all warm and glowy inside!!!  I may be a wee bit of a saddo?! I'll let you decide!
