Happy Monday everyone.  I hope you had a great weekend, my husband and I went to visit my Mom in San Francisco and on Sunday I worked on a set of baby shower invitations someone ordered (18, not too many but enough to require lots of time cutting all of the elements.)

Here is the invitation:

From October 11, 2009

Oh and I did laundry today as well, while watching the 49ers lose...sigh.  Oh well, there is always next week.

Before we get to the freebies I wanted to show you a card I made using a Prickley Pear LOVE this stamp!

Here is the card:

From October 11, 2009

I stamped the image (a grid with the heart and swirls) on top of some ledger paper I have (actually have about 500 sheets of the ledger paper), added the butterfly, added another thin piece of card stock (which I stamped) and mounted everything on the black card stock. I used faux stitching around the black card stock (have an old tool for sewing that makes the perforations, then just add some lines with a pen for the stitches).

The butterfly was colored with copics then covered with diamond glaze and some glitter.  I will be doing a tutorial on how to blend different copic colors together (as I did on the butterfly)  for Paper Craft Planet at the end of the month.

And now...onto the links.

I love, love, LOVE finding "free" stamping/scrapping things online, and let me tell you there are tons of things out there if you just spend some time looking.  Today I have perhaps the longest and most diverse list of freebies I have ever posted, and there is sure to be at least one "freebie" that you are going to love.

Here goes:
