My friend called and asked me to create a card for a snooker loving male friend of hers sooooo this is what i came up with, you get the stamp and the digitally coloured image in this pack, I will be back with the card once i finish it :)
I had a mail the other day informing me my favorite Scrapbook Store is closing its doors on November 11th, this is the site that set me off with digital scrapbooking and i am really sad to see it go, unfortunatly i am afraid it is a sign of the times that such great stores are going to have to hang up there hats due to the climate and all, but deb did say somthing i totally agree with, and am going to share with you all here about Freebies.
"The closing of this site is a sign of the times. The cost of running this site is simply not supported by sales. I would like to take this opportunity to help the digital scrapbooking world in general by sharing a few thoughts with you all.
I know we all love freebies, but unfortunately, if there is an overabundance of supplies available for free, then sites where you can find quality products and interact with people who share your interest will eventually cease to exist.
When a person walks into a grocery store, they might get a sample of a new brand of cheese, or even a free box of crackers… if they buy 1, but that is the catch… the store has to make money, or it cannot stay open, and it’s inventory has to be kept up by paying it’s merchants and employees, or they will stop bringing products in or stop working, which again comes back to sales.
One person doesn’t have to spend a lot of money every time they go to a store, but they do have to purchase something on a regular basis, or the store will have to close it’s doors."
It is definatly somthing to think on if you wnat to continue to see your favorite designers continue to produce the fantastic kits they make, so with that said I would like to wish Deb and all the girls at Deco Pages all the best in everything they do from here on in, they have a closing down sale on right now and you can still grab some of there fantastic designs in store until the 11th November.
Get Sketchy's sketch this week was one i just couldnt pass by so i took the chance to use some free papers and bits from a magazine i have been wondering what to do with them for a while so here we go i used glitter card and ribbon from stash and finished off with a couple of square diamond brads.
