FREE DIGITAL STAMP ~ HANG IN THERE!

Hello and welcome to another Free Sentiment Saturday. I recently purchased a digital stamp by Mo Manning called Sumpin's Wrong.

(click on photo for larger view)
It's absolutely adorable and a perfect picture of  "one of those days". I thought it would be great on a card of encouragement but it lacked a sentiment ... so I made one and used it to make this Easel Card

(click on photo for larger view)
I printed the image on X-Press It cardstock and had fun coloring it with Copic Markers (Skin ~ E000, E01, E31; Pants ~ B32, B34, B37; Shirt ~ G40, G43, G46). I created the easel card using cardstock and Everyday Snapshots DP from Recollections. Then I added the buttons and sparkly buttons paper from my stash, added my sentiment and hung some more buttons from the sentiment with American Crafts twine.

HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #192 ~ "APRIL SHOWERS"

Hello and welcome to another House Mouse Monday! We have a new challenge starting today over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and the theme is April Showers.

(click on photo for larger view)

For my card, I used the "Rain Flower" stamp by Stampendous and a sentiment from Stampin' Up! that I inked up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic Markers. (Monica Mouse ~ YR0000, YR00, R11, C1, C3, C5; Raindrops ~ BG000, B12; Flower ~ G12, G24, G46, RV02, RV14, RV25)

(click on photo for larger view)

It's very hard to see here, but I also added Glossy Accents to the raindrops after I colored them. The decorative papers are from the DCWV Touch of Foil collection and I cut out my layers with MFT Dienamics Stitched Rounded Rectangle dies. The brad in the center of the flowers is from Basic Grey, the flowers are from my stash, and the twine is from American Crafts.

Now on to the challenge information.

FREE DIGITAL STAMP ~ PET SYMPATHY

Hello and welcome to another Free Sentiment Saturday! I've created quite a few pet related digis over the past few years and it occurred to me that it would probably be a comfort to someone to have a pet sympathy digi on hand as well. I always find it's easier to make sympathy cards when I don't need them so I try to keep a few on hand just in case I'm too overwhelmed to create the card when I do need it.


Here's the deal: This digital stamp (without the watermark) 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.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

MID-WAY REMINDER FOR HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #191 ~ "BIRTHDAYS"

Hello and welcome to House Mouse Monday! We are at the mid-way point in the current challenge over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and would love to have you come and join the fun. The theme for this one is Birthdays (with the option of Anything Goes).

(click on photo for larger view)

For today's card I chose to use the "Eat Your Cake & Nap Too" stamp from Stampabilities which I colored with Prismacolor Pencils and shaded with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I used Washi Tape from Pebbles, Inc. to make my sentiment and birthday candles, layered it up on DCWV papers on Recollections Cardstock and dressed it up with ribbon from RRR, some flowers I crocheted out of embroidery floss using this tutorial, and a little bling from my stash. 

Now on to the Challenge information:
