Happy Friday - lots to share!

Firstly... Happy Friday and a card share.  Made this with the amazing Jodie Mackrell's digital image Butterfly Bear 2 available over at Bugaboo Stamps.  Remember - Jodie does freebies every Friday!.  Thought this guy would be great for Valentine's - for the sentiment I did a play on words as I think he is a bear trying to impersonate a "bee"!!!!  Fun.... okay... the cold is getting to me!!!  it's minus 7 degrees celsius (19 degrees fahrenheit) outside!!! which I know isn't that cold for people in parts of the USA and Europe... but for Ireland ... that is BALTIC... the country is about to close down... running out of grit and salt supplies.. no kidding!

Supplies: Kraft cardstock, X-cut L corner punch, Bugaboo Stamps - Butterfly Bear 2,
PP by Cosmo Cricket - the boyfriend range, misc lowercase individual alphabet letter stamps,
Copics, foam dots.

I am a big fan of the very talented and amazing Heidi Swapp and discovered a freebie over on House of 3 on Wednesday that I thought I would share. 

It is a place to journal where you would like to be at the END of 2010 - a focus for your thoughts, dreams and goals.  If you are interested - the link is here.  Maybe you could incorporate it into a layout or just use it for yourself!  Check out what Stephanie Ackerman did with her printout... just amazing!

Then I came across my HA friend Kathy's blog candy.... I fell off my chair and then said I had better share!!!!  It is AMAZING... go check out her blog here and get yourself in with a chance to win!!! lots of rhyming going on this morning and I'm not sure why.... maybe it's the cold!!!

Anyhow... Kathy is a creative genius and is giving away the above on her blog until Jan 21st - isn't she so kind and generous... I would just love to win the card!  I just love that cupcake stamp too after what Shari made with it on the Hero Arts blog earlier this week - check it out here.  In fact... okay... I'll fess up... I love everything in the photo above... fingers and toes crossed!!! LOL!!!

I just spotted on Alice's blog that Jane has new digital image releases over on Squigglefly tomorrow... be sure to check them out.

Sorry for the long post... again Happy Friday - hope everyone has a great weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
