Freebie: Paw Die-Cut + Keeping Up with My Goals

HelloBefore I start… if you have an electronic die-cut machine, scroll down. I have a freebie.

If you stopped by a few weeks ago, I mentioned my 2009 goals and one is to do at least two challenges a week. Since then I’ve been pretty dang good! I have also met my “get two things published this year.” I have a Jan. Scrapbook Trends page published (it’s under the Showcase section) and I have another one this Feb. for an online publication called Bella Scraps. Both have been by accident so yes I’ve met my goal but it’s not like I was trying. Do they still count?

So here’s my second challenge for this week, a card created using a 2Sketches4You sketch and also inspired by Caardvarks: polka dots. For the paper I used SU card stock, KI and Damask (the b/w flourishes that I trimmed out of a whole paper) pattern paper, and Sassafrass stamp. The sentiment I think is CTMH. It was a freebie from a scrapbook expo. The ribbons were garage store finds and I used my Nestabilities for the circle and scallop circle behind the owl.

I am home sick today. Just not feeling too hot. Between soreness from being preggo (I had nerve issues with M too) and trying to fight a cold I decided to stay home. The good thing out of it… after a nice nap and some tea, I could whip up a card {::SMILES}.

Paw Inner

The freebie… a while back I made this paw print for this layout. To download, just right click and “save as.”

Just FYI, I only have a KnK but from what I read, those with other machines (Wishblade, CraftRobo, Cricut Expression with proper software) will be able to import either the SVG, DXF, or PDF file. For the JPEG images, just click on the paw images to download them.

Alrighty, have a great one. I think I’ll nap some more!

    I’m not surprised at all that you have had things published. I adore your style and I have come to really look forward to seeing what you have created! I hope you get feeling better soon… won’t be long and the new little one will be in your arms and it will all be SOOO worth it! That’s what I told myself every day with my last pregnancy. I seemed to catch every cold and flu going around on top of the pregnancy yucks, but in the end he is worth every bit of sickness! It’s hard to believe that he is already almost 4 months old… where does the time go??
