joy...

Please CLICK HERE for my The Craft's Meow post!


This holiday season I've noticed a ton of manufacturers slinging out the free images...it's GREAT.  But, I'm pretty ritualistic...I save all these gorgeous images and never return to them to actually USE them...sigh.

So in an effort to "use what I have"....I've broken my ritual and used a freebie!

Check out that gorgeous Webster's Pages tag...YUP, it's a FREEBIE.

The detail is delish:


Check out those SWEET birds...one even has a crown...

My card was Inspired By...Laurel:)


You gotta check out Laurel Seabrook's new Challenge site:


I'm one of those many crafters that seem to need inspiration in order to create....whether it is a sketch, a color combo or inspiring photo.  So I was thrilled to learn that Laurel started a new site...you have until Wednesday, December 7 at 11:59 PST to link up!

I loosely used the Cardabilities sketch:


Thanks for poppin' by!
