Whimsie Doodles digi freebie

Whimsie Doodles released a new digi freebie to cheer up a dreary day!  Here are two cards I made using the new freebie with inspiring messages!  Now all I have to do is find a friend who's feeling stressed so I can give them a card! LOL Sorry for the odd way of looking at things :)

So my first card is keeping it simple with of course some stitching! The sentiment is from a stamp set also from Whimsie Doodles called Jungle out there.
for my second card I flipped the image and cut it out with a Sizzix circle die.

Best Dad ever

Good morning my crafty friends!  Today I have a card that is ahead of it's time, I mean it's about 4 weeks early :)  But it's never too early to think ahead and before you know it Father's day will be upon us. There are some really cute tool digi's by Whimsie Doodles that can be used as tags or embellishments for cards and scrapbook pages so I used the handsaw for my card.  I managed to keep it fairly simple (for me) to keep the focus on the saw.  I think this would make a great Copic class don't you?

I didn't forget

Today's Wednesday Trends over at There She Goes is all about Twine.  When I first spotted it a few years ago it was this little box 6 from Martha Stewart and I just loved it!  I couldn't wait to get it home and when I did I couldn't figure out if I liked it or not on my cards so I put it away.  A year later twine was everywhere and I love it.  
I used Jute Twine from May Arts 
  Jungle out there stamp set from There She Goes.
