A Freebie and a great deal too!

So if you guys haven't already checked out the new FABULOUS digi-blog called The Daily Digi, then you're missing out!! This great new blog takes the best of the community and boils it down to some fantastic quick daily posts. Plus each month the site is featuring some of the best (if I do say so myself he he he) designers in the industry and for a HUGE bargain of only $5.00 gives you a giant grab bag of their designs!

This month's designers are as follows: Shabby Miss Jenn, Heather Ann Designs, Sweet Shoppe Designs, Flergs, Vira Lim, Audrey Neal, Melissa Bennett, Jen Caputo and ME!

I've purchased this "grab bag" and it's SPECTACULAR! But it's only for sale for a few more days, so click on the image to hurry over and check out this great new site and deal!

And now thanks to Tami, (one of my fabulous CT) here's a little goodie for you that she made from my PURE JOY kit! It's a checkbook/pocket calendar cover!

Just click on the image to download, and PLEASE leave Tami some love!!
