A very special Special!

This is a special you don’t want to miss. Not only will you get these 2 adorable Christmas stamps, but by participating in this month’s special you’ll be helping save animals. Every time a customer includes our special in their purchase, $2.00 will go to “Pet Pardons”We will keep you posted (on our store front) just how much money you and I can raise for our four legged friends.

All you have to do is spend $7.00 anywhere else in our store, and you’ll get this FREE gift.

It’s a sad fact that many animals find themselves in pounds and animal shelters through no fault of their own.It would be lovely if they ALL could find new homes but unfortunately it’s just not possible.Many beautiful creatures face death because of this.Even if you can’t rehome an animal please help in just a small way to give them a better quality of life.

As well as the Special the November Sale is taking place :

Pay Digi Doodle Shop a visit.You won’t be disappointed.

Here’s a card I made using one of the Special digi stamps :

This is the gorgeous Santa & Friends and it’s been watercoloured with Whispers Brush Tip Markers.I’ve had these for years and never really got on with them so I decided to revisit them using Crafter’s Companion Watercolour card and wow what a difference! I actually coloured straight onto the card and blended out with a water brush.I added some Polar White Flower Soft to make the perfect snow.Edges have been torn using a deckle edge ruler.The sentiment is Digi Doodle Shop Circular Word Art -a freebie!Along with many others!The papers are Basic Grey Jovial,edged with Vintage Photo and Black Soot Distress Ink.Other cardstock is from my stash.All edges have had the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser run along them.The Cheesecloth arrived in the post from Ebay (sorry can’t link to the seller,they’ve sold out!) and the Making Memories Primary Brads I’ve had a while.

Some challenges this card is for :

Clear It Out : Your Favourite Holiday

Socks’ Story :

“Somebody’s sleeping in my bed.” It sure ain’t Goldilocks!LOL

This is our gorgeous dog Socks.She was picked up as a stray and for whatever reason she was never claimed by her owners.She’d been at the pound too long and the vet was called to put her to sleep.Luckily the sensible decision was made not to.She found herself at a rehoming centre and we had the good fortune to come across her there.This sweet natured,loving girl has fitted in perfectly with our family and loves everyone equally.As you can probably tell she is thoroughly spoiled and gets all the attention she deserves!

Thanks for looking

Lisa x
