Special RAK Event

Good Evening Everyone, WOW its Thursday already!!! Days just seem to fly by...... is it because I am getting older??? LOL!! My daughter has a soccer tournament all weekend this weekend...We are spending the weekend in Columbus Ohio... so I am hoping to get one more post in before we head out. If not this will be my last one until Tuesday...



I wanted to share a NEW digital freebie being offered at Whimsy Stamps. Crissy Armstrong created this sassy froggy in honor of our DT member Lisa's sister Jayme, who sadly was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Lisa has a special RAK request posted on her blog now with a great prize up for grabs. If you're a card maker and want to brighten someones day, please make a card and send it off to Jayme!

You can visit the Whimsy Stamps store page to download this image or click HERE to go directly to the download. The file is a zip file so you will need to save it to your computer and then extract the files to be able to print and re size and flip the image.


I just had to make a card for Lisa's sister....this touches my heart and I just knew I needed to be a part of this RAK event....She loves frogs and this image is just sooo sweet!!! Please if you have a moment take the time to make Jayme a card....you can find all the details HERE.


Here is my card I created for Jayme.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope everyone enjoys their evening!!!
