Friday Freebie -- New Feature ! ! !

Friday Freebie Time!

So ... We all know I am a big softy for sentiments *understatement* 
And of late I have found myself playing around on my computer and making a few of my own.  Even though I have a great stash of saved ones I am finding they don't quite fit into the die of choice for a particular card or I just can not find a digital copy to purchase of what I want, so ... hence I am trying my hand at making my own. It seems a waste to not share them so I am going to offer them as freebies every Friday. 
Here is the 1st one off the ranks.  
I love this verse and often think of hubby when I see it.

Click on the image to make it full size, then right click to 'Save As".
 Please do not re-post this on your site as a freebie.  I would be flattered if you would make mention of where you obtained the original image, and I would love to see your creations with any of my sentiments so be sure to drop me a line so I can come and have a peak! Thank you! 

This little darling is headed all the way over to hubby in Perth.  The heart buttons are faux, handmade with Designer Paper and Cardstock and to give a vintage aged effect to them I have used thick clear embossing powder giving a really textured bubbly effect.  I love all the browns in this card! Even with all the hearts it feels really masculine and earthy.

Little envelope (pocket open) I am adding a love letter to hubby in here.

So tomorrow is my 32nd Birthday :$ *getting old lol* and I know hubby is sad that he is not going to be here to celebrate, so I thought I would take this perfect moment to send him a little love letter (hence the envelope inside) and try and cheer him up.  Seeing as making cards is such a passion and love for me I feel sending just a letter in an envelope is really impersonal and should always be sent with a card. *yeah I am a little loopy :)*   And seeing as it is a love letter, it needed the hearts :))

Thank you for visiting and I hope you like what you see:)
