Store and Pattie Gomez Bio

I am an Internet Technology Professional and an Artist. I always dreamed of being an artist, but I found out quickly that I needed another field to support my family so I pursued a Degree in Information Technology. I love to use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks to enhance my work.
I created a character called Pattieboop and her cat named Allie. I have had so much fun coming up with different images so I also created a site to sell them. You can go to my store to find out more about Pattieboop & Allie. I know you will just love them when you see them. My store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/pattiescreations
Here is the bio of Pattieboop & Allie if you want to use it. I have it posted at my store.
Pattieboop is an 11 year old girl who is very opinionated. She was created by me, Pattie Gomez on September 7, 2009. Pattieboop is an average 11 year old and she loves dressing up. She is very petite in nature but stands tall because her mother always told her that “If you stand tall you will one day become someone important”. Pattieboop always remembers her mother’s words and makes sure she is noticed. Pattieboop has a favorite pet named Allie. Allie is a slender black cat and loves playing and spending time with Pattieboop. Allie spends most of her days napping and her nights are spent getting in to mischief…

The lucky winner will receive 3 images from her lovely store. 

Now here is some inspiration from our lovely design team who have been lucky enough to use some of the sponsors images.







Hope you will all have fun with this challenge and have a great weekend.

Hi my crafty friends i am Tracy Wray owner and designer of craftycat designs, i have been crafting for many years, but my love of art and crafts comes from my mother, she used to make all my clothes and stuffed toys, i was knitting and crocheting at 5 something my mother, grandmother and i used do together. I love all forms of crafting and i often have many things on the go as i cant just stick to one thing. I have 7 mad cats who also like to craft with me, well that's what they think they are doing, most of the time its them chasing my paper flowers all over the place! I love that anyone can craft no matter their age or ability it brings everyone together with such wonderful hobby, i hope i can inspire a few people along the way and share my passion for crafting with everyone. hugs Tracy x

South African crafters are new to the digital stamping world, with the first South African online digital image store launched in 2010  Digistamps4Joy (or DS4J) http://www.digistamps4joy.co.za/eshop/.  In February 2012, Margy Kieser took over ownership of DS4J, and there are now two South African artists who contribute to the more than 500 images available. Margy has taken the store to new heights and the store now stocks digis that are cute, whimsical, artistic, sometimes serious, and sometimes humorous. The store has PAYPAL, PAYFAST (South African) and EFT (South African) facilities.  Digistamps4Joy offers a monthly freebie on the first Friday of every month, and holds regular bi-weekly card challenges that draw entries from many international card makers.

Hi, I am Bernardine Cuttino, kindly call me BERNI. I live in Santa Clarita, CA, USA, 40 miles

I retired from Princess Cruises, the cruise line. I have travelled the world and visited all seven continents. 
My favorite place in the world is Italy. I also worked in the Motion Picture Industry for twenty years. I have worked with many actors and producers. I casted Star Trek the next generations, TV show.
I began scrapbooking and went into card making when I retired. I love to create and experiment with different techniques, and enjoy gardening. I am involved in the Women’s ministry at church. Living the life of the retiree. Always looking for inspiration and ready for a challenge. http://berni46.blogspot.com/
