Oh where oh where has all my time gone?

Well certainly not doing what I would prefer to be doing, that's for sure! Over the last couple weeks we have been going through some major changes at work. One of them was closing the local office that I worked at. Now I have an hour and 20 minute commute every morning and sometimes longer coming home. This has seriously cut into my crafty time, and I am none too happy about it! So I apologize for no post last week, or anywhere in between.....I will get used to it and start posting more often! ***pinky swear***


Happy October Everyone!! Fall is here and Halloween is just around the corner! And what a great time will be had this year, as Halloween falls on a Saturday! Whoohooo! To celebrate one of my favorite holidays, Lindsay has created another great set of digital stamps. The Creepy Crows set can be found here for only, $5.00. There are 7 stamps in this set, and a million ways to use them!

One of my faves from this collection is this silhouetted tree in a graveyard. So spooky with the crows flying all around. I tinted the stamp using Adobe Photoshop Home Edition and printed the image to fit my card. No additional coloring was necessary. Let's see you do that with a traditional rubber stamp! Then I added stickles to the tree and the crows.

I used #36 sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches

Ok, ok, on to the good stuff. I know you came here in the hopes of a freebie, and I will not disappoint! Hop on over to Lindsay's Blog, The Frugal Crafter, and see what she has to offer. Also there is a new set of stamps in the shop, Leaf Prints set. Contains 9 images for only $5.00

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to have more time, and PROJECTS soon!

That came out awesome and i love how you did the sentiment and date, cool card! I have a long commute too and I constantly think of how much time I lose driving, it totally stinks. At least I love my job but I would rather be home in my craft room!
