Frugal Fridays: $1.00 Bracket Fun and Spring is coming!

Hello everyone,
      First I'll tell you about my Frugal Friday special then scroll down to see what else I'm excited about!  For today only you can get my Bracket Fun file for merely $1.00.   It's a very versatile file perfect for scrapbookers and cardmakers alike.   Hurry though this wonderfully frugal price disappears at midnight EST today...March 5, 2010.  Here is a fabulous Christmas card Kelly sent me.  I just love those trees and they match perfectly with that paper.  The tree files were designed by Chris Durnan and you can find them here.  I bet you could easily change this card design up and make this card more suited for Spring by adding flowers to the trees and using floral paper.


Click on the preview below if you'd like to purchase my brackets.  



Okay take a close look at the photo above! Do you see it!   Do you see that wonderful site that I see?!  Yep my tulips and daffodils are poking their leaves out of the dirt promising me that Spring is coming!  I can't wait!  I'm sooo tired of  the Winter snow and cold.   I absolutely love flowers and can not wait to see the blooms that these leaves are promising!  There is something about the birds chirping and flowers blooming that makes me happy!

Well since Spring hasn't officially arrived yet..I decided to create my own Spring by drawing my first digital stamp.  I showed you a preview last week.  I'm excited to say it is now in the store.   I colored it and sent the card off to my Mom.  Here is the preview of the card.   I do like how it turned out...but I've got to say it was hard for me to leave it be!  I don't do simple...I kept slapping my hands and closing my eyes because I so wanted to add something else but knew deep down that is was perfect just the way it is.  So ....what do you think..did I do good?  Oh and the scallop border on the card came from Penny Duncan's wonderful nesting files.  You can find it here

If you'd like to color a watering can of your own and bring a little Spring into your world on the preview below to purchase the stamp in my store.
Okay I've gotta go clean my house!  In laws are coming!  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

Wonderful work- in "drawing" the digi stamp, coloring it, and designing the card.
I love using Penny's files, too.

The digi stamp is PERFECT and I have already purchased it from the Store. I absolutely LOVE it and as soon as my pea brain can figure out HOW to do a print and cut on my craft robo, I'll be getting this one done. I've tried and tried and TRIED to get the print and cut to work but I must be missing SOMETHING because my CR cannot read the registration marks and I'm SO frustrated with it...but, my ole brain will figure it out....some day! LOL
