Practicing Creativity

From our Home to Yours Christmas Card featuring Beccy's Place Stone Cottage Freebie

The stone cottage digital stamp focal point of this card is a freebie from Beccy's Place. In addition to the awesome digis available in her shop she generously offers a plentiful selection of freebies. Exactly why she's on my list of 10 Favorite Free Digital Stamp Sites.

The paper is a grocery store find a few years back and I'm getting down to the last bits of it. I've used the heck out of it, as on this Snowman on a Swing card

The sentiment was created with Milk Shake font. Embellishments are three velvet brads with the tines cut off. I've got two little pots of these brads and although I use them a lot (this From Our Gnome to Yours step card is another example), I've never actually used one as a brad!
