Stamped Frame Freebie

This is a 'Stamped Frame' I made today. I decided to share it with you as it looked so nice on a page I'm working on for my aunt. I made a new preview page too and a new TOU as well!
I don't know why, as over the weekend I had some serious thinking to do about whether I would continue to give freebies at all. The jury, as they say, is out - for the moment anyway.
Maybe I live in cookoo land, but I try to live by the ethics I was taught as a child. It's simple.. when someone is kind enough to give you something, then you should return the kindness by saying thank you. No Big Deal. As I have written before I was a serial 'Mopper Upper' of freebies in a past life, however, no matter how small the item was I always left a thank you. For some time now I have noticed the thank you's on my download page almost dwindle away to nothing which is so demoralising when so much time is spent making a freebie. Anyway... I hope you enjoy this little frame, it's handier than a brush as you can rotate it to fit your picture without having to stamp on a separate layer. Download below

This is my latest freebie gift to you, hope you like them. The ribbons are sheer (see through) and the little clouds are also see through. I love the way they look overlapping background papers and other elements. Also you can sit them on the edge of a picture or over text to get a nice faded effect. Anyway, if you download I hope some of you will leave a comment, I see Fran noticed that too! it's a good thing that I enjoy sitting at the computer for hours making stuff to give as freebies or I might get grumpy and you don't want that now, do you, LOL. (but never mind, my hubby loves my work & he says the nicest thank you's!)        Heaven Sent Tags Download GLO_Heaven_Sent_Tags_FREEBIE

Button Up baby QP Freebie

This is the second QP as promised, it will make a nice double page layout along with the previous page. The bent frames give a 'blowing in the wind' look which is what I wanted for the winter pictures. The words running around the frames are "baby it's cold outside" and "All buttoned up" Again, expressions we tend to use when getting the little ones ready for the outdoors in cold weather.
While I was making these pages I decided to make some complimentary 'word art' in the form of dangles. I thought they looked nice pinned on to a little piece of the striped 'cloth' I made for the sidebar on this page. I hope you like what I've done and I would like to thank the few who continue to support me and leave nice comments. I have been living in a different world in the last 18 months since my hubby became ill and so, I have only occasionally blogged and posted freebies. Some days I think it's not worth the effort, then I get a nice comment from Fran, Bridie, Paddy's Girl etc, that makes me smile and forget my problems. TY girls. Downloads below wordart preview.

Hope you like this new QP Freebie, geared towards the boys. I was hoping to be using nice spring colours by now but Brrr it sure is cold - which is how I got  the title for this "Brrr.." QP. As anyone who knows me knows - I love boys, (had three of my own) and any excuse to try my new QPs with my boys photos is a winner for me. I made the little heart buttons first and then used the colours to design the paper. I have another similar page coming up which will compliment this one, so enjoy your freebie and I hope to see you back in a day or two.
Oh, and please don't forget the TY, it makes it all worthwhile

No sign of warmer weather so far although my little willow trees have been brave enough to put out a few catkins. For me it's always the first sign of Spring along with the snowdrops and the daffodils. A lot of my plants and trees were really battered by the storms this winter, the sea winds were so strong a few weeks ago that during the night a beautiful Oleria tree was lifted right out of the ground. It flattened bushes & plants where it fell and our garden birds lost their feeding table too. The tree was beyond saving so we sawed it into logs for the fire, though I don't know if I have the heart to burn it. It was a tiny cutting about ten years ago, then gradually a little bush and finally a beautiful 20ft evergreen tree. A great haven for birds and occasionally our wayward cat Buster!! don't ask.
