Freebie Friday

Today is Freebie Friday at Bugaboo and Jodie has this awesome image (okay I know I say that every time LOL) but what woman doesn't love chocolate?  well these images/sentiments say it all.

it may be hard to tell in this picture, but I dry embossed lines on the brown cardstock to make it look like a chocolate bar :)

Now hop on over to the store and get your image.  If it's not there yet, check back throughout the day (possibly around 2:00 EST), Jodie is in a different time zone then I am and sometimes her internet doesn't want to work right so this gives her time to get them up.


Mini set of cards-Artful INKables

I thought for today's post I would use Aquatic Fantasy and create a mini set of cards.  This set has four matching 3x3 cards.  The card was created using the crab, one of the sentiments and the little mound scene from this set.  I kept the cards simple so that if they were placed in a holder (yup, there will be one of these on a later date ;) ), they wouldn't be so bulky.

Here's the set:

and here's a close-up of the card:

Happy Birthday Card

I had all intentions to get a card created using the freebie image "Katie" from Victoria Case done before it went out on Monday but with Abby's birthday party and everything else this weekend, I just couldn't do it.  So I sat down last night and created this card with it.  I really liked how it came out.  The layout of the card came from Club Anya & Friends Saturday Sketch and I used it to submit my entry to become part of the design team over at Party Time Tuesdays (*crossing my fingers that I get in*).
If you like the looks of Katie, she is available over at the Victoria Case yahoo group (link is on the right of my blog).  Become a member and you can get her for free!
