Crow Trees and Freebies!

Fall is certainly in the air way up here in Maine. The leaves are beginning to change and we may have a frost on our hands (well, on the grass) this morning. When the sun comes up, I'll go check and see! I had asked Lindsay to create a crow stamp for me because I'm in a ATC swap at The Stamp Shack. Well, being the overachiever that she is, she made a whole set of crow stamps! Here's a preview of the set: (I'm not sure why the pic is so small. Maybe someone can help?)
I just love it! If you love it, you can buy it at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff for just $5.00 You can also get an awesome FREEBIE if you stop by her blog, thefrugalcrafter's weblog. I can't tell you what it is, just that it coordinates with the Creepy Crow Set and you won't want to miss it...
Even though I originally asked for a crow to use for the ATC swap, I decided to do another sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches. Makes sense, right? :) I am really loving sketches lately! They take all of the "thinking" out of making a card. I used black bazzill for my card base. I layered a panel of the the striped side of a sheet of bo bunny paper onto the base and cut two small strips of purple bazzill and emobssed them with a border folder. I layered a panel of the polka dotted side of the bo bunny paper onto that and printed the Crow Tree onto a scrap of orange DCWV, inked up the edges with Black StazOn ink. I used pop dots to adhere the top two layers and I finished up with a couple of Prima Flowers (also pop dotted) and some Stickles~ Ta DA! I can see I'm going to have a lot of fun with my new stamp set! Thanks, Lindsay!

...weather update! The fog is clearing, and there is no frost here in my neck of the woods. Safe for one more day!
