I Googled my name tonight testing how my site was coming up on the search and I saw that way back in June you had my First Christmas design on your blog as one of your favorites. That was so sweet, thank you!

Hi Carrie, I love your work, especially the adorable Tweet Tweet design, which caught my eye right away! I was just browsing Flicker, and came across this invite I thought you might need to be aware of: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mielledesigns/3256923278/. As a fellow designer, I felt like I should give you the heads up! :)
