A New Venture

Most of you don't know but several years ago I owned a very small stamp company.  I mostly sold on line and sold to a few brick and mortar stores across the US.  I work full time and running a business was just not possible so I closed shop 4 or 5 years ago.  Now I wonder if there is any interest in some of these designs as digis so I started a very small digi shop with a few images.  If there is a demand I'll add more.  There is a freebie there for you to pick up.  Let me know what you think.  The images are not "cute"  They are more realisitc than I see most digis.  Maybe there is interest if not that is OK but thought I would give it a try.  Go check out my new ity bity store  GingerLoft Hopefully I'll make a little bit of spending money for our upcoming trip.  Hugs to all.

Pretty in Pink for the 4th

We haven't done much this 4th of July but we did go and see the Karate kid this morning and really enjoyed it.  We have more stuff planned tomorrow like visiting the art museum that has a travelling egyptian exhibit and eating lunch at Incredible pizza.  Fireworks tonight look like a bust as there is a huge green blob headed our way but who knows.  I broke my leg three years ago today on a rainy 4th of July so I really don't mind just staying home but I think Aly and my husband may not agree. 

Anyway on to my card.  I actually bought this digi can you believe it;)  You know I love the freebies.  It is by Pollycraft.  I love their bear collection.  I added and added layers trying to get it look like I wanted.  I have seen some lovely work with border punches and need to figure out how somethings are done.

This card was made for these challenges
