Spooky Birthday

Happy Tuesday.  I hope you had a great weekend.  I got together with some stamping friends and had a blast.  We spent the day making cards, eating and laughing.  It was a great escape!! 

I don't know about you but I love digi stamps and paper.  They are easy to use, don't take up space in my craft room and are convenient.   This made this weeks challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations so much fun for me.  All you need to do is make something using a digi stamp and digi paper.   I used a stamp from Make it Crafty and the paper is from Barely Mine.

Kristen is also giving away a prize.  All you need to do is leave a comment on Going Grey with Scrap-Creations with your 3 favorite digi companies, #1 being your favorite.  The following week she will pick a winner and they will win a $10.00 GC to that company!!  How cool is that!!  Get out those Digi's and join the fun!  You could win!!

Good Morning.   It is rainy and cold here today.  It is the kind of day you just don't want to get off the couch.  But it is a weekday so I have to work.   The good news is that I work from home so I don't have to go out in this mess if I don't want to.
