Check It Out

Check it Out!  That's what the Cuddly Buddly challenge #15 wants you to do.  Use checks, plaid or tartan patterns.  That challenge got me thinking of some Graphic 45 Christmas paper in my stash.  Yeah!  another Christmas card done.

Did you know that there are free digi images available at Cuddly Buddly.  I can't think of a better deal than that.  Click here to find out the details.  I checked it out and was amazed.  Go to the shop and click on the "Instant Downloads" menu.   Click to list the images by price and you can view all the free ones.  I clicked on the last page and made my way backwards from there.  There's several pages filled with a variety of images.  If you haven't made your Christmas cards take a look to see what's available.  I picked up a couple Easter images too.  Go on a spree, you can't go wrong at these prices. 

After you've picked up some great new images why not use one to make a card or project for the "Check It Out" challenge.  Who knows, maybe you'll win and then you can get even more images. You don't have to use Cuddly Buddly images to play along with us but we'd sure love to see what you do with them.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Cuddly Buddly "Xmas Lights"
ink - hp printer; Ranger "Scattered Straw
