FREE DIGITAL STAMP ~ GET WELL SOON!

Hello and welcome to another Free Sentiment Saturday. I'm visiting with a sick family member tomorrow which inspired me to make a Get Well digi for you all today.


Here's the deal: This digital stamp is available in jpg and png format. If you would like to have it, please send me an email and I will send it out to you.

Send emails to: snoopyshomemadefunblog (at) gmail (dot) com.

As always, my digis are free of charge because FREE is definitely in my budget and I know it's in yours too ...lol. One request though, please do not share these with others, instead send them here and I will be happy to send them the digis as well.

By the way, there's no expiration date on my digis so if you see one from the past that you'd like to have, send me an email at the above address and tell me the name of the digi or the date the digi was posted and I'll get it out to you.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Snoopy :D

P.S. Feel free to send me a photo/scan of anything you create with my digis. Who knows? It might even be showcased in a post.

FEATURED ARTIST ~ LOZ KINGSTON

Hello and welcome! As many of you know I post Free Digital Stamps here on Saturdays. I receive many requests for them and send them out, but it is very rare that I get to see what gets created with them.

Card by Loz Kingston

This card was made with one of my digis by Loz Kingston, a sweet and talented lady whom I've had the privilege of knowing for about seven years now. She posted it on her blog with a link here and I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was to see it. Isn't it just the cutest? Thanks so much for the shout out, Lozzie! It's a fabulous card.

Hugs,
Snoopy :D

P.S. I'd love to feature more cards on my blog that were made with my digis. Feel free to send me a photo/scan of your card if you'd like yours to be included in a post.

HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #190 ~ "ANYTHING GOES" AND/OR "CASE THIS CARD"

Hello and welcome to House Mouse Monday! We have a new challenge, with a twist. You can go with Anything Goes (which is always an option), or if you'd like a chance to win a Special Prize you can CASE the card America made. You can find all the details over on House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. Here's my card.

(click on photo for larger view)
   
I decided to CASE America's gorgeous card and went with a photographic theme. The background paper is covered with images of cameras and if you look just below the "Oh Snap!" on the left-hand side, it even says "say cheese". Perfect for my little mouseys.

Sew What by Stampabilities

The cardstock I used was from Recollections (Black Cardstock) and Neenah (Solar White).

Birthday Cupcake by Stampabilities

The silver paper is Die Cuts With a View (Glitzy Glitter Paper) and it doesn't shed its glitter at all.

Birthday Donut by Stampendous

The beautiful stitched detail on the squares  was made using My Favorite Things "Stax Stitched Square" dies.

Make A Wish 02 by Stampabilities

The pierced detail on the stars was made using My Favorite Things "Stax Pierced Star" dies. 

Oh Snap by Stampabilities

The decorative background paper is from My Minds Eye (All Things Chalk) and the circle and scalloped circle dies are from Spellbinders.

Monica's Gift by Stampabilities

I added a little sparkle to some of my images using Copic AtYou Spica Glitter pens.

Amanda Mouse

I colored my images with Prismacolor Pencils and blended them with odorless mineral spirits.

Tiny Jumper by Stampendous

The final detail, the bling, was Stampin' Up! rhinestones.

Hopeful Mouse by Stampendous

This was such a fun card to CASE. I hope you'll play along with us.
