I feel so bad that I don't remember where I found this free digi stamp. This is probably one of my favorites so far and I can't find the location. Still searching and as soon as I know I will def let you know. Hope you enjoyed the card.
*updated....I found the blog that I got this stamp from. You can find it here.

This little old guy just made me laugh when I saw him. He is a digi stamp from . And he was so much fun to color. This card is actually for my grandfather. His birthday is V-day and I'm always teasing him about being old. I think he's gonna like it though. Thanks for looking.

A little birdie...

I adore this digi stamp. I got it off . I'm a huge fan of digi stamps now. I can print a few copies of it and make all the mistakes I want until I figure out what I want to do. I can't believe how great the wings turned out. Thanks for looking :)

On a Wednesday Afternoon....

I absolutely love The Outlawz site. You can find them here. Everyday there's a new challenge, from cards, to sketches, to colors to use, to simplicity, and on and on. This was the Wednesday Sketch Challenge for this week.

As you can see it's intended for a card but I decided to use it on a layout instead. I used the kit from Walmart and the Storybook Cartridge on this layout. Thanks for looking :)

Challenge for Me

We've all heard and said it ourselves a thousand times.... "I have enough scrapbook supplies to open a store". Well, I'm in the same boat, and I'm not really in the position to buy anything right now. But when you see that really cute paper and that awesome new tool, you just can't help yourself. I really need to stop!!!
So I've challenged myself. The next big crop of mine is Feb 26th. I have a few blog hops between now and then and I'm really needing to use up what I have. Plus, I want to save some of my money so that I have some to really spend that weekend. Maybe I'll even be able to finally buy that Cuddlebug that I've really been wanting lately.
My challenge is simple.... for each project I make with using things only from my stash, I earn myself $ to spend. When I finish that particular project, I'll take the $ immediately and put it in my savings jar. So the price list is as follows....
Layouts $1
Cards $.25
Altered Project $2
Craft it Forward Completed Project $3
30 min of cleaning scrap space $2
This is just an idea, not sure if I'm gonna add anything in the future. I'm excited to get to scrapping now, because I'll be earning $ to spend on future projects! And hopefully by time the crop rolls around I will have completed all the "need to do's" and be able to spend some time on "want to do's".
