Pussywillow Butterfly Digi Stamp Freebie

Hey there!

It looks like this weekend is going to be a busy one! Luckily I had some time tonight to draw up a Digi Stamp...but this will be the last one for about a week. I am prepping some frames for the Seniors to embellish, and I still have my taxes to do in the next week or so. 

The craft room is coming along nicely, I just need some shelving to finish it. I got a great deal for a small shelf at a local second hand bookstore that is closing. It'll be great for my stickles, glimmer mists, wooden stamps, punches, etc. If you can see them, you tend to use them!

For Christmas last year, my husband bought me a Flip Video to make You tube videos with. I haven't had an opportunity to use it for that yet, but I do plan on it. I definitely want to do one for some of the soaps and maybe the frames as well, so maybe in the next couple of weeks I can get something together...if I can figure out how to use it. I blush...but it's the truth!

I noticed that most of the faux leather techniques out there are quite different than mine. My technique gives the look and feel of leather. If you'd like to see what I mean, check out these posts:
Money (Wallet) Gift Card  (This one looks like Ostrich Leather)
Carpenter's Belt/Handyman Card
I hope to do these as video tutorials too! Check them out!

Anyway, enough chit chat! Time to show you my Digi. It's Pussywillow Butterfly Branches in a Jug.
A little whimsy for the weekend!
