Visit often, new things always being added

A sample of my handcrafts for sale

Now, I dare you to say that three times fast!  I'm in a whimsical mood, don't know why . . .  I'll be on the road 8 hrs.+ tomorrow heading north, and you may as well start laughing thinking about being in the auto that long with DH and the geriatric dogs.  Mind you, the pooches have always been good travelers; it's just getting difficult 'cause my 15-yr. old Yorkie is totally blind now so she doesn't know where she is on the car seat which makes her more skiddish.  We are planning a few stops on the way up and back, so even though it's a quickie trip, it should be enjoyable. 

I've made you two FREEBIES  to hold you over until I return in a few days.  Always when I get in my creative groove and get on a good roll, I have to leave or something. 

Here's the first; these are so cute and will add a bit of whimsy to your summer layouts!  They are actually called ribbon fish, and I made them from a template from Farrah's Designer Scraps and some of my first papers.  These are all in the same color family, and I'm sure I'll do more of them later in other colors.  There are eight pngs in the zip, and they were just fun to make.  I procured the template at Groovy Scraps if you would like to get your own.


Your second FREEBIE is the first set in a large series of papers I've been working on for quite some time trying to get happy with the finished idea.  It finally came together well enough to suit me with the use of a grungy border overlay by Janice Ward of JW Digi Scraps.  Thanks, gal!!  I'm simply calling this series "Shadow Floral" and there's a view of a single one on the preview so you can get the impression of how each will look basically in the different hues of coloration difference.



As usual, these papers are 12 x12 inches and 300 dpi.  I'll have more sets of these coming at you soon in a lovely variety of colors.  Let me know if you like them as it helps to spur me on!

Well, I'm off to finish up my last minute trip details.  I'm carrying my laptop so I can keep designing, but again I'm going to that place where it's so difficult to pick up the internet for the sticks (mountains and valleys).  I'll be taking a ton of pictures, I'm sure; so it's a fun opportunity to be with family for a few short days and gather a lot of scrapping flicks.

Stay safe, and I hope you all enjoy your holiday weekend!
