Frugal Fridays: $1.00 Valentine Candy Bar Wrapper today only.

Goodness would you believe I completely forgot it was Friday!   I ate breakfast, exercised and such...sat down a the computer to start working on a Valentine box file and realized that UGH I need to tell you all about my frugal Friday special!  I can't believe I forgot all about Friday!  Maybe it's the pending snow storm we are getting that got in the way.  I think we are suppose to get 4 to 8 inches.  I hope it doesn't start until Tyler is home from school and Toby is home from work.  I know the kids will love it if they get to play in that much snow!  It's kinda nice when it occurs on the weekend and we don't HAVE to go anywhere!  If we get a lot of snow I'll post photos for those of you who are in wonderfully warm and sunny climates to enjoy!  LOL!

Okay now on to the Frugal Friday special.  For today only my Be Mine Candy Bar Wrapper will be $1.00.  This price will be poof...disappear at midnight find out what time it is in the store see the watch to the right of my blog.  Click on the preview to purchase.  It's a great file that will quickly get you ready for Valentine's Day. 

I am hosting a sketch challenge on the Paperthreads forum.   It's great fun!  We are using a sketch from our very own Aussie Caz.  Here let me show you! 


Isn't it great!  If you sign up to play along with us you get the cutter file of this card along with the layered PSD file courtesy of Caz...wasn't that sweet of her!  By participating you even have a chance to win a free file of your choice from my store.   So go to the PT forum and check out the details here.  You do have to be a registered member of Paperthreads but its' FREE and easy to register and you'll reap many benefits for doing so.  

Here is my example.  I made it quite a while ago!   Let me just say I hate coloring hair!  Any good online tuts anyone can share with me would be appreciated!   I know...I know it doesn't exactly look like Caz's sketch but...that's the beauty of a sketch.  You can use it for inspiration but if you sway from the sketch it's OKAY!  (Thanks Caz for reminding me of this!;)) 
The image is called Swiss Pixies: Gretel by C.C. Designs. You can find it in the Paperthreads store here.  The wings actually have glitter on them but it's hard to tell in the photo. Those little pearls are actually Tulip brand paint made for fabric but they work wonderfully on paper!  (Got them for $1.99 for 3 bottles at Ollies..can't beat that!)    The scallop circles came from my humming bird card.  Click the preview below to purchase!
Oh well I'd better go!  My daughter is getting containers out of the refrigerator...think that's a hint she hungry?!  I'm pretty sure it is!  I'd better feed her before she tries to cook something herself!  Thanks for stopping by!  Those of you who are getting snow...please stay safe and warm!

Have a wonderful weekend!
