Hi, Katie -- I was wondering if you have time to design one card for the Greeting Card challenge for a new copy I have thought of. I love your whimsical designs, and I believe you can bring this new copy to life. I have sent a friend request to you on Facebook (I'm "Marie Ag") there, so that I can send you the copy there... I look forward to hearing back from you :) Thank you :)
