You get to design Amy Butler and her teams name badges. Yes you!!! How fun is that? And if you win this challenge whats in it for you, I hear you ask? One, the pride in seeing your name badges on Amy Butler and her staff. (Kelly plans on taking lots of pix in Houston) Two, your name posted on I Have A Notion as a "Spanked Out Designer" and..... four patterns, Stationary and some surprise goodies from Amy. The unfortunate thing is its only open to US participants because of time restrictions.

YES 100 FOLLOWERS.....wooohooooo......I think that's pretty exciting but I think that the freebies I put on here are worth following. I say that because I know they are all things I would like to make...even if my talents may not be in that line they are something I would like to make if I could.

I do want to say a very big THANK YOU to all the wonderful people out there who offer their talents to us and give us the freebies. It is very kind and generous of them to be willing to share them. I have accumulated so many purchased patterns over the many years and some stay unused in their packets. And, as we all know, our tastes change and then you grow out of a pattern you have never used. Soooo, A VERY BIG THANK YOU again to all the wonderful freebie givers.
