Country French Happiness

Hello, my friends!

A card & some fun news to share with you today…


…a little bit of French countryside whimsy to tell you how happy Sandy, the owner of Crafty Secrets is to go all digital!


In an effort to simplify her life (she’s a very busy woman!), all your favorite stamps will still be available—just digitally now—and grouped on future CD’s…it will be so easy to play with , re-size & use all these images and so many new ones to come!

Lots of new paper—and your old favorites!—will be found on the upcoming CDs…just like the beautiful scenery and vintage jointed French lady I used on my card today…


…isn’t she wonderful?!  Just copy, cut out (I love cutting out pretty images!), and place her where you want her…so much fun to do!

This pretty floral background paper can also be found on the new CD—matches this sweet scene just perfectly, I think!


And just to make your feet do an extra happy dance…


…Sandy will be having a big sale on “Black Friday”, November 25th, on all the Clear Art Stamp sets—you don’t want to miss it!


Here’s what Sandy has to say about the new “Creating with Vintage Illustrations” CD:

“I’m super excited about this CD and with over 200 files it’s a fabulous deal for $15.99--but if you can’t wait until this Friday and want to pre-order it NOW, we will include a free Image & Journal Notes Booklet (just state what title you’d like in the message box in our Shopatron Store, or we will automatically send a Christmas Booklet). We should have the first 100 in stock this Friday, 1000 more to follow.” 


That’s about it for me today…I’ll be back in a day or two with more projects using the new CD…until then, I hope your Thanksgiving holiday is a warm, wonderful, family-filled time!

See you soon with something new…
