Free Digital Stamp, Ornament Kitty

It's a beautiful morning!

I hope you're all having a good day! 

I've been working on my Etsy shop and finally got the banner up yesterday. It's a simple banner but it will do. I've decided to go with Carmen's Place for the name. Short and simple, and therefore hopefully easy to remember. 

I've also decided to keep everything in one shop. It's just easier that way for me in the long run (yes, it's all about simplifying with me). So, my shop will eventually consist of digital stamps, crochet, some specialty cards, sewing and maybe some clay jewelry pieces. Right now I just have digitals in there. Most of them you've seen already, but new ones will be coming soon.

Speaking of digital stamps, I have a free Christmas image for you; a kitten playing with an ornament! I've left it quite simple so you can decorate the ornament and kitty any way you want. 

I've left the copyright to the left of the image so it doesn't get in the way. I've decided to do this to ensure that any of my images that are pinned to Pinterest will show a link to my blog. 

Also, there's a link to Carmen's Place on Etsy in my sidebar. I'll keep you up to date as to what I post in there. Right now, it's time to take some photos and get some things completed! :)

I do love to craft!

Have a wonderful day,
