I was 'clickitty-clicking' around the net the other evening ... as you do ... and stumbled across some really cute images available to download for free.
Yes ... FREE ... every crafter's favourite word!
They belong to Elizabeth O. Dulemna who is an author/illustrator of children's books and she offers her images for free provided the conditions of her Angel Policy are followed. CLICK HERE to read the details and then follow the links to check out her lovely cute characters.
This afternoon I sat out in the glorious sunshine, armed with a mug of coffee, a box of Promarkers and a sheet of images downloaded from Elizabeth O. Dulemba's free colouring pages. The time just sped past and I was lost in my own little world of colouring bliss.
After dinner I came upstairs and made 2 cards using this ultra-cute book-reading dinosaur image.
Isn't he absolutely adorable? He's coloured with Promarkers and matted onto patterned papers from the Forest Friends Kit which I was lucky enough to win in a recent Creative Cottage Challenge.
It just so happens that their challenge this week is Father's Day and they have a June Freebie which is perfect for this occasion ... I have used one of the circle sentiments ... so hop over and snag it while it's available.
The other version is a birthday card and it fits in with the Simon Says Challenge and For Fun Challenges as they're both asking for 'Male-themed' projects.
I have added some 'faux stitching' which follows the theme set at The Res-Q-Challenge and Books are the hot topic at Passion For Promarkers.
Finally, Stamp Something are having their first Digi-Day Challenge and have lots of prizes on offer so if you are a 'digi-fan' then you MUST check them out for sure.
Our sweet Naomi is due home shortly after enjoying a school trip at Alton Towers Theme Park - lucky spud. Wonder if she braved the new ride TH13teen? GULP!
She'll be absolutely shattered when she gets in after all that lovely sunshine and excitement ... not to mention an 8 hour journey in a stuffy coach - Bleurgh.! Can't wait to hear all about it.
Hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend, with plenty of sunshine, wherever you are and whatever you are doing.
