Art Creations Friday


Art Creations Friday is offering up a fantastic background today to download and create with. I used the background to cut out my bird and flowers as well as stamp my iron fence on.
If you haven't checked out this challenge blog yet, make sure you do. Every Friday they offer up free backgrounds or images for you to use.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I know I did, really enjoyed spending the day with family. One of the biggest surprises of the day was an enormous box of vintage cards my sister-in-law passed on to me which her family had been accumulating for 50 or more years. There are at least 600 cards in the box. I can't wait to start going through some of them. I'll be sure to post a picture when I do.
