Scribbles Designs June 24th Freebie: Seagull


Hey everyone!  I have some very exciting news that I am going to be sharing with you all at the beginning of July and I've been extremely busy getting ready for it; so unfortunately, I do not have a project to share with you today.  However, I still wanted to let you know that a new Freebie Friday Image is available, over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog. This week there is an adorable Seagull available for download. Summer means beaches for many and with beaches comes seagulls! If only all seagulls were as cute as the one Sandy created! 

Don't forget to mark your calendars every Friday to head on over to the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog to grab the latest freebie up for grabs. You can find Seagull from June 24th's post HERE. Alternatively, you can find it in the store HERE. It is a great way to add to your SD digi stamp collection.  Remember, when you use an SD image on a project that you enter into our monthly challenges, you get extra entries! That is a great incentive to use one of Sandy's images. 

Well that is it for this post. I'm sorry that I'm not as active on my blog as I used to be. With so much going on behind the scenes, I have little time these days to be in front. Please know that your continued support is greatly appreciated!!!

Until next time,

Father's Day is coming and I thought I'd make a fun paper!  Of course, it will work for other masculine projects too!

I tried to give the paper a bit of a vintage feel.  Check it out...

http://pattiescreationschallenge.blogspot.ca

Hey folks!  I'm here today to announce the next challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design ChallengeThis time around for Challenge #123, the theme is Father's Day or Graduation ONLY!  With Father's Day coming very soon and many students graduating, there are lots of opportunities for either of these two ideas!  I choose to go with the Father's Day theme.

  • The sentiment on the bottom was created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and for awesome sets for purchase, click HERE to go to the home page of the store.  It has been coloured digitally to match my project colours.

Challenges I am hoping to enter...

You have until June 30th to enter our challenge which should give you lots of time to get a creation done.  Remember the theme is Father's Day or Graduation ONLY!  I really hope that you will be able to join us. Don't forget that along with all the typical rules that apply to the majority of challenges out there (please click HERE to become familiar with all the rules), you MUST USE A DIGITAL OR STAMPED IMAGE to qualify for the drawing (unless stated otherwise). We would absolutely love to see you use a Pattie's Creations (PC) image on your card, but you are allowed to use other images. If you do use a PC image, you will gain an extra entry in the draw and will have a better chance to WIN! You can enter twice per challenge and of course MUST follow all the challenge requirements that are posted for each challenge. Easy Peasy right!

Pop over to the challenge blog and check out what my fabulous teammates have offered up for inspiration.  Oh and don't forget...Pattie offers up a new freebie the first Friday of the month and it will remain up for approximately two weeks; so, be sure to pop over and check it out as well!

Until next time,
