Freebie and beautiful people.

Don't we meet the most beautiful people through our shared love of crafting. I met a lovely Canadian lady through a card swap site I'm on. Today when my health and energy levels are the lowest for a couple of years, and therefore my happy meter had sunk too, I received a package from her. After recently learning of my love (OK, obsession) with House Mouse Stamps she bought me a House Mouse Calendar - up shot my happy meter again and nearly burst out the top lol. 

They are beautifully water coloured images, on water colour effect paper, 12 x 8 in and perfectly scrumptious. A few of those babies, maybe more, well maybe all, are destined for frames as soon as their respective months are up.

The icing on the cake.....it was wrapped in Kraft paper.....was my hubby ever surprised to see my excitement over brown wrapping paper lol. I'd wanted to have a go at coloured images on Kraft such as Dorcas does so well, she even has tutorials so check her out. What to buy though, I thought I was looking for a card type of product, which wasn't on any site I'd look at - having seen the paper in the flesh I now know what to go for, and have a bit to practice with lol. 

Here are a couple of sheepies for any who want them. Again, hand drawn so 'primitive', but I think they are cute. I'd love you to leave a comment if you take them. 





Usual copywrite rules, please don't pass them off as your own, and I'd appreciate a link back to me if you use them. Please send people to my blog rather than pass on the images to others.  If you're new to my blog please feel free to snag previous freebies, in labels. Hugs all...

Well, this is my second attempt at leaving you a message. The first one disappeared in blog-land. lol. The sheep are so cute. I sure couldn't do anything like that. I'm happy that you had a pick-me-up. I haven't even wanted to make a card recently. Yikes! Thankfully I have a few obligations. Thanks, dj
