Phew what a scorcher!

I can't believe how hot it is here today! We've got to get the caravan spruced up before going away on monday and it's unbearable, the drive is south facing so it's like an oven.
The kids have been outside since we got back from a last minute shopping trip and poor old mum has to get the laundry finished :(

freebie #3

what a numpty!
I forgot the download link(blush!)

Freebie #3 - the packages!

Image bumped

Here they are, I eventually managed to save them properly (did them as png's -whoops- no layers to play with) They are tiffs so you can create a new image and drag them in-I've included stitches and staples on each of the files so there's a choice. Feel free to do what you will with them, I really enjoyed playing, but settled on the austere manilla card look, after trying out a few textures.
try changing text or a doodle to a pattern , you can get a great embossed effect if you use bevel and emboss/texture with it, or just fiddle with the sliders to change the colouring, use one of your papers as a pattern fill on the header, stick an eyelet or ribbon in the hole, whatever you want! All I ask is that you give me credit.
Don't know what i'll be doing next -i've a bunch of colour schemes worked out and am waiting for the inspiration fairy to sprinkle her dust on me, I've got something in mind for after our hols which should please all those motorbike mad OH's and sons, but it'll be a biggie and probably set free in bits lol!
thanks to everyone who has downloaded #2 - I'm really chuffed so many of you like it!

Here are a few stickers that I drew when I got my new wacom(well you've got to test them out!)theres a transparent and a cutout version of the doodly ones and cutouts of the flowers, plus brushes of the doodles in .abr format. Many thanks to Atomic cupcake for the sticker actions.

Thank you!

thanks to everyone who's downloaded my Dad papers - I'm glad that you like them! I've been packaging up some stickers and brushes tonight, then I had the idea to make blank packages as a CU freebie so that anyone who needs bags and header cards can have a couple to customise - needless to say, I've got a little way to go , but should be ready to put them up tomorrow (morning or evening depending on when DH gets his sleep!)

Nearly there!

Only 2 more days to go until the kids break up from school, then another 10 until we pack up the caravan and go to legoland for #2 son's birthday! he's been asking every morning if it's his birthday yet.
I've got a few potential freebies sorted so will get them up as soon as I organise them into files and upload them
