A beautiful freebie for you all



Good Morning Peeps, seems winter is well and truly here now in the UK, it's been raining and dull for days and now the dreaded frosts have arrived so really it's the prefect opportunity to craft and as stamping is still proving difficult for Mrs Fumblefingers I have concentrated on working with Ignacio's latest releases and thought I would share a few, the Oriental ones further down in particular are lovely and a little different for Christmas.

Also Iganico has very kindly given me a freebie for you all to download (below), it's a famous illustration from 1921 by C. Leyendecker.....I've never offered an image before so not sure how it will download, so if you have any problems just mail me and I will send it to you that way.


And not only that, he has a discount voucher for his Christmas Ball images..............


As you can see Igancio has worked his magic again with my photos and added names of the image sheets and you will find direct links to all in the thumbnails below.


And a couple more, I kept them all fairy simple as the images are beautifully detailed and I thought too much embellishment would distract from them.....................


Thanks for popping in and I hope you enjoy using the image above.
