Free Images

My First Christmas Card 

 Crafts on the Net  is a site that has many sheets of digital images for free, so all of the following cards use images from the various sheets.

This is from one of the Christmas sets. I think this will definitely be a one-of-a-kind....too much fussy coloring for me! I made the poinsettia from two different sizes of leaf punches and some seed beads.

The next three are from the fall animal set.

 Inside: "Honey, You're still a fox! Happy Anniversary."

Inside: "To celebrate you! Happy Birthday!"

Inside: "Sorry I missed your birthday! Hope it was happy!"

This is from the monkey set.
  Inside: "Your secret is safe with me! Happy Birthday!"


This one is from the spring set.  

Inside: "You made me bloomin' happy!"


This last one is from the Valentine set. I think it's my favorite of the bunch! I love the flat-backed string of  pearls from WOC! They are so easy to apply.

Just a word or two about the took me a long time to isolate the different images in my card program. I first tried to crop out the desired image, but that didn't work. I had to position the image I'd chosen then 'erase' all the surrounding images. I then saved them so I wouldn't have to bother with that again. I wish I knew how to do it in Gimp! I'm sure it would be easier!

So follow the link at the top to some great images, and have some fun creating!

Thanks for dropping in!

 A little something!
I have a little gift to give away. It's a set of six clear Christmas stamps made by Inkadinkado. Just leave a comment, and I'll choose a winner randomly. No strings attached, but I'd love it if you'd follow me!
