That's it. That's all I ask. Let the girls know you've seen and appreciate their wonderful work :-)

Okay, so now on to today's projects and FREE cutting file and digi stamp.

Here is a layout I made a couple of years ago. It was pretty clean and straightforward. I used some Basic Grey patterned paper that was so pretty.

The BG paper inspired me to create this wonderful rose piecing. Here is a closeup of th rose. I cut all the pieces of the rose (except the leaves) out of white cardstock. I then inked and chalked the "inner" pieces. I left the background part completely white. I then assembled the rose and used some Stickles to "Outline" the rose.

Now here is the same rose, converted into a Digital Stamp.
I used my Copic markers to color the stamp in and then used some Stickles to Outline it. I used a couple of EK punches for the corners and flourishes and I used my Cricut for the dimensional flower. If you would like to know more about the dimensional flower, just go to yesterday's Fantabulous Friday post and get the info....you can go HERE

The digital stamp set comes in pdf with four different sentiments. It also has the plain rose (no sentiment) in jpg format. The cutting file comes in the following formats: AI, DXF, GSD, MTC, KNK, SVG, SCUT(scal 2.0), WPC and WPC 14.

Be sure to grab them quickly as they will only be available for FREE until Sunday night (tomorrow, Oct. 17th) at midnight (eastern) time.
