Mister Ginger Freebie

Helloooo there, it has been so long since I last posted, I must admit I have been very busy of late with Christmas coming up.  I sat down today and had an idea of this cute little guy, so I set to and put keyboard to computer screen and when I finished I thought...  he'll do.

In the download you will find, both a coloured and a digi stamp image of Mister Ginger in both jpg and png formats.  I hope you like him.

Until next time...

Swinging Bird

Hi all, sorry for not posting for what seems like forever, I have been suffering from digi block, and have been fiddling with different drawings and deleting them as they are really not what I was looking for.  So if any of you have any ideas of things to draw then let me know in the comments.  I can't promise to draw your ideas, after all I freely admit I am not the best at drawing, but maybe you will have some ideas that I haven't thought about.

Anyway, I did come up with this little digi for you all, basically, what you see above is what you get in the download, a jpg digi stamp image.  Except of course for the the writing, yours of course, comes with my blurb all over it.  Just click on the image to be taken to the download site.

Take care all of you... until next time..

Croc Freebie

Hello again, seems ages since I last posted, and indeed I do think it is ages.  Ah well, at last I have a new freebie for you, but to call it new isn't exactly right, as I drew this ages and ages ago.  Phew, there does seem to a lot of 'ages' in this paragraph.  lol.

Anyway, just click on the image and you will be able to download my cute (ahem) little crocodile, in both coloured jpg and png formats, and a jpg digi stamp version.  Also in this download are a couple of Word Art images, in both jpg and png.  You can see what they say in the image, and I hope you find them useful.

Happy Crafting,

Scary Monster Freebie

Well it is that time of year, when you have to keep looking out for ghosts and ghoulies wherever you go. So to help you find some, here is what one may or may not look like.  Yes it is a scary monster, and yes it did make me scream like a Victorian Miss seeing a mouse.  But saying that, I am sure being scared will not make you not want to download it by clicking on the image above.

In the download, you will find a jpg and png version of the coloured image and a jpg digi stamp for you to colour in however you wish...

Hello ~waves~...  phew I am hot...  I know I shouldn't really complain... but... phew I am hot !!!  I am sure that this is not normal weather for October in England...  well at least in my little corner of our fair isle.  Still, I have an excuse to sit down and do a little drawing, it's really much to warm to do anything to energetic isn't it?

Do you know I like piggies, I have quite a collection of different ones... little ones, big ones, cuddly ones, ugly ones and cute ones as well.  So I thought I would inflict another little piggy on you all...  and yes he is a little cheeky as he is sticking out his tongue.  Seemed like it was something he be should do.

From the Top Santa Freebie

This is the last of my From The Top images, which I am sure you can all recognise as Santa, but as I was just looking at it now, you can also use the digi stamp image and use different colours and turn Santa into a Gnome.  Sorry was just a thought, but I am sure you can see where I am coming from ... lol.

I really like this image, and is my favourite of the 'From the Tops', I just love his little nose, and to be honest I just love Santa...  makes me feel all happy and bright.  If you want him, just click on the image above, and in the download you will find, a coloured and a digi stamp image in both jpg and png formats.

You can use Santa with the other From the Top images, stand him beside the tree etc.  I really hope you have fun using some of these freebies from this week...  there is a final freebie tomorrow...  so check back...

A Flying Rudolph Freebie

'On Blister, On Dumpster, On Dishwasher, On Pincer...'  

All those lovely Reindeer names I remember so well, but there is always one missing from Santa's cry...  and that's Rudolph, not sure why he forgets every time, maybe he is getting a little forgetful as he gets older !!! 

Whatever the reason, I have decided to help Santa out this year, and gently nudge his memory by sending him this little image out into the World of the Web.   Hopefully this will prove that I am a good little girl this year, and he will add me to the appropriate side of his list.

In the download, just click the image above, you will find, a coloured and a Digi Stamped Rudolph in both png and jpg formats.  I really like this image, and I hope you do as well...  There is another image coming your way tomorrow, so don't forget to check back.

From the Top Snowman Freebie

Oh look it snowed last night and see what I made....  lol.

Okay, maybe it didn't snow, and maybe this image has been made for some time, but it is jolly festive.  First I gave you the From the Top Tree, and now in the same theme I give you the Snowman.  In the download you just get the Digi Stamp image in both jpg and png formats, but I am sure you can soon make that nose a lovely carrot by adding some orange...

From the Top Christmas Tree Freebie

I did warn you that Christmas was coming early to my blog, and yes it has arrived, and to prove it I am putting up my tree, it's absolutely full of baubles, and for a change I am giving you a different view of it, looking down from above.  Phew, that was a entirely to long sentence I believe, sorry about that.

You may say that it's much to early to be thinking about Christmas, but in the crafty world, if you are like me, the cards have already started to be made.  I have been making Christmas cards for a couple of months now, and I just love finding the freebie festive images that have started to trickle into the freebie digi world.

Just click on the image above to be taken to the 4shared site, where you can download my freebie.  Once downloaded, you will find, a coloured tree in both jpg and png formats, and a jpg digi stamp image of the tree as well.  I did think the tree would make a really nice decoupage image if the layers were all cut out and stacked up.  I haven't tried it myself, so if anyone does, let me know how it looks...

There's another Christmas Freebie tomorrow...  so check back when you have a moment to spare.

A very scary freebie !!

Don't Panic !!!!

It's not a nasty, creepy spider, it's just Simon, hoping to get to know you better.  I am really not sure why I decided to draw a spider, I can honestly say I am not one of their biggest fans.  But - as you know with me, things sort of develop into other things and suddenly my new image is there.

So, after I have crawled out from behind the sofa, I took a good look, and thought to myself, 'Hey, Simon doesn't look that scary, you big girls blouse'.  I really hope you agree, and click on the image above to download him.

In the download, there is a coloured and a digi stamp image of Simon, in both png and jpg formats,go on, you know you want him on your computer, who could resist that smile... lol.

Meerkat Freebie

Hi all, this is a very special post, and I am giving you one of my favourite animals as a download as a treat for you all.  The reason why this post is special is that I have just gone over 100,000 downloads from my blog, and I was rather chuffed at reaching that splendid achievement. 

The trouble with having an all freebie blog is that I can't give you anything for helping me reach that huge figure, so I decided to draw a Meerkat as a thank you.  I love Meerkat's, I am not sure why, but every time I see one I just go 'Ahhhhhhh'.  I hope you find this image as pleasing as I do,  as it took me a while to get it just how I wanted it, and to be honest, the poor creature went through a redraw just this morning.  LOL.

In the download, just click on the image, you will find.  A coloured jpg image in png and jpg formats, a jpg digi stamp image, plus some rather nice Word Art, to celebrate a birthday.

Thank you once again, for all the lovely comments and e-mails you send me, they do give me so much inspiration, and mean so much to me.

Freaky Critters Part 6 Freebie

Another day, another Freaky Critter, well you will be happy to hear that this is the penultimate one, yes, the Freaks are ending soon.  As you can see this time, I have 'put the bunny back in the box' ...  Okay... okay... I know that was a freakish reference to the film 'Con Air' - but I just had to say it - as I just love the way Nicolas Cage manages to keep a straight face while uttering that line - now that's acting... ~grin~

Anyway, to get the bunny out of the box - Tee Hee - (for goodness sake humour me here) - just click on the image above to go to the download site.  Not that I really think that the Freaky Bunny would be happy to go anywhere, let alone into a box !!  (Enough with the box jokes I hear you cry)

As usual in the download you will find a coloured and a digi stamp image of today's Freaky Critter, in both png and jpg...  you lucky people...

Have fun folks, and don't forget to check back tomorrow for the last of this weeks set of Freebies.  I think I have saved the best til last, but then you might have other ideas...  us crafters to tend to think 'out of the box' at times... (oh hahahahaha I am sooooooooo funny - I managed another box reference)

Freaky Critters Part 5 Freebie

Well more than half way through this fine set of Freaky Freebie Images, and what have I for you today?  It's none other than a Freaky Dog, all drooling, and eye balling you, my advice is to not look away.  Just back away slowly, and click on the image above when he least expects it !!!!

You will then, after a few seconds, possibly minutes, become the proud owner of your very own Freaky Dog, both coloured and Dig Stamp versions.  Both in jpg and png formats, for you to do nearly whatever you want with... lol

Some might say this was modelled after our dog Welly, but I want to assure you, this is completely drawn from my imagination... so you can make of that what you will.

Freaky Critters Part 1 Freebie

Hello, I am so excited about this set of downloads, that I simply HAD to start the set off today, a day earlier than I had planned.  So, my dear readers, I want you all to gather round and put your hands together - (echo's of polite clapping ) - for the very first part of Freaky Critters....

In this Freaky set are seven Freaky Critters, starting with today's offering, a Freaky Owl.  Tee, hee... I wonder what the record is for having the word Freaky in a sentence? 

Each of the Critters start with two things that are the same, the body/head shape and the eyes,  you will see what I mean as the days go by, because I will be posting a Freaky Freebie over the next few days until I run out of them, which should be next Saturday.  The funniest thing is this owl, which was the first Critter I drew, was supposed to be a Bee, but somehow it morphed mid drawing into this owl.  Don't ask me how my mind works, it scares even me sometimes !!!

Just click on the image above to go to the '4Shared' download site.  In the download you will find, a coloured and a digi stamp Freaky Owl, in both jpg and png formats.

Remember to pop back ever day this week to see the other Critters in this set, I love them all and hope you do as well...

Stitched Dragonflies Freebie

Hi all, not posted for a while, sorry for that, no excuse, just being very lazy...  I was at the Summer Crafting Event at Doncaster at the weekend, all those crafting folks I had seen on the tv were there, and so many things to buy. Such fun!!!

Today's freebie was an experiment for me, I had an idea to do a dragonfly with buttons, so I had a go, and was not completely happy, so tried again.  The next one I liked a lot better, there is not that much difference between them, but it is nice to have a choice.  I shan't tell you the one I didn't like so much, I just hope you enjoy both.

In the download, which you can get by clicking on the image, you will find, 2 coloured dragonflies in both jpg and png formats, and also both come in digi stamps, in jpg and png as well.  I really hope you find something you can use these with.

Dotty About Flowers Part 1

Hi again, hope you are all well, I am feeling good at the moment, feeling quite excited actually as Stuart and I have bought tickets to go to the Summer Crafting Show at Doncaster, we have never been to a large craft show before so should be a great experience for us both.  I am of course busily saving all my pennies to spend there, but I might have to resort to spending all the pennies that Stuart saves up as well.  Tee Hee !!

Today's freebie is all about flowers, as you can probably tell.  There are quite a few different elements in the download, each coloured image available in both png and jpg formats, and each coloured image has a jpg Digi Stamp to go with it.  I think the large main flower image would look lovely decoupaged up, and hopefully there is something for everyone to play with.  Tomorrow, or possibly Wednesday I will post up some matching papers in 5 different colours, so that's something to look out for...

Have fun all...

Granny's Cottage Freebie

I tend to think about strange things at times, like last night as I was laying in bed, I wondered if girls still wore Slips.  You know under dresses and skirts to stop the cling.. rofl.  I haven't worn a dress or skirt since I was at school, many moons ago, and it was just something I was pondering before going to sleep.  I know I am odd!!!

Anyway, enough of my oddness, and here as promised on both Facebook (it'll never catch on), and Twitter (no one reads my tweets ~sigh~), here is the brand new freebie, tee hee!!!  I decided to call it Granny's Cottage, mainly because it looks a little like the bungalow my Nan used to live in.  I prefer the word cottage to bungalow, which is a really strange word when you come to think of it.  Will have to look up the origins, and see why they decided to call a house without an upstairs a bungalow.  Oh know, am pondering again!!!  Sorry.

Anyways, if you would like today's Freebie, just click on the picture above, and you will be able to download the folder.  In said folder you will find, a jpg and png version of the coloured image of Granny's Cottage, and also included is a jpg Digi Stamp image.  I know that one of my other 'home' images is one of the most downloaded images I have on my blog, so hopefully you will find this one just as fun to use.

Happy Crafting...

Pretty Petals Freebie

If I were feeling uncharitable at this moment I could say 'Bah Humbug', why I hear you all cry.  So I shall tell you, my sister Sue is buying herself a Grand Calibur today, lucky sister.   My jealousy has no bounds, I am literally green with envy.  I want, I want, I want...  ~stamps foot~

Feel better now, apart from my foot, that hurts as I stamped so hard.  LOL!!!  I am not really green with envy, that would be such an unbecoming colour, but she is a very lucky sister me thinks...

Anyway, to take my mind off the Grand Calibur, I am giving away these 'Pretty Petals' papers as my latest freebie.  They are all 300 dpi, A5 papers. in various shades of prettiness.  In the image above you can see a close up of the papers, pink, green, blue, purple and brown.  Also you get a Digi Stamp of a matching flower in the download, which you can get by clicking on the image above.

Hope you like these... take care...

Heartfelt Card and Tag

Hi all, I just couldn't keep these to myself when Barbara sent me an e-mail showing me what she had done with my Heartfelt Owl image, aren't the card and tag gorgeous? I adore the colours, and they inspired me to do some owl colouring in myself yesterday, I had a great time.

If you want to see more of Barbara's crafty inspirations, then take a look at her blog, Herzlich Willkommen in Babsis-Ideenwelt. She even has kindly provided a translation button down the right hand side  for people like me who can't read German.

Thank you Barbara for allowing me to put this up on my blog to share with all my readers.

V is for Victor(y) Freebie

Yay, victory that 4Shared is working again, at least for me to upload my freebies again.  I do know that some of you are having troubles downloading my images, and I honestly do not know what the troubles could be.  If anyone else has had the same trouble and fixed it, could you let us know how you did it please.

This image I used on Stuart's sister Netty's birthday card, she likes Vultures, and was really pleased with her card.  Of course I forgot to take a picture to show you all...  but just think absolutely fabulous, and you will pretty darn close ~big grin~.

Just click the image above to got to the download site, and you will hopefully be able to download Victor.  In the folder you will receive, a coloured Victor in both jpg and png formats, and of course a digi stamp for you to colour in yourself.

Enjoy all...  hugs Janie xxx

Nothing to see here... well nearly... lol

Hi all, tried to post a new freebie yesterday, but 4shared was playing up and I couldn't upload my file.  Tried again today and the same problem.  Have now written to them to see what the problem is, so while I am waiting I shall sit here and twiddle my thumbs....

~ A Large Amount Of Thumb Twiddling Later ~

How was that for you?

Hmm...  ~Yawn~

Well this is boring, how about I put up a couple of posts to older freebies you might have missed...  at least it will give you something to look at...

So here are some blasts from the past, yes all the way from 2009...  Just click the one(s) you like to download.

I love the Wilson Bear Freebie, it was named for my very own Teddy that I cuddled up to not so long ago.  The papers that come with this one are gorgeous, and of course not forgetting the Digi Stamp, that I forgot to put in the image.
One to never forget, that's Elle the Elephant.  Such a cutie isn't she, especially the one with the mouse on her back...

A really early one this, Butterfly Kisses, no Digi Image, but really nice colourful images for you to enjoy, I have seem some really nice cards made with these.
Two little monkeys, I love the feet.  Makes me giggle just to look at them...  lol.
There are plenty of other images to browse through, why not take a look in the archives until I can get a new freebie added.  Hope you find something you like...

Heartfelt Owl Freebie

Hi again, yes I know, it's another owl, but I like owls, and I thought this one was cute, so I give him to you.  Just click the image above to go to the download site, and once downloaded you will find you have a coloured owl image in jpg and png formats, and a jpg digi stamp as well.

This would look great decoupaged, or paper pieced.  Hope you enjoy making him into a crafty item to treasure.

Just saw on the QVC UK website that Dawn Bibby is leaving, I remember watching her more years ago than I care to mention, she inspired me to craft, and I probably would not be were I am with this blog if it wasn't for her crafty enthusiasm starting me off on my crafting adventure.  I wish her well in her next venture, whatever it turns out to be.

Happy Crafting folks...  keep smiling...

Zebra Freebie

Hi again, can you believe it, the weekend is here again?  I suppose with the Bank Holiday (May Day), last Monday it has made this week shorter, but it does seem to of flown by.  It looks like today will have to be Housework Day, the house is looking rather in need of a bit of TLC.  With the weather being so nice and the windows and doors open, I think all the dust from outside has ended inside on my furniture.  Ah well, it has to be done sometime doesn't it?  (Hopefully you will all say NO now, and I can get on a do something far more to my liking LOL)

Anyway, enough of my dirty house problems... and on to today's freebie, which I like very much.  I haven't got a name for him/her, which is a shame I know, but I am sure you can come up with something if you want to.  To download my Zebra, just click on the image above, and in the download you will find, a coloured Zebra in both jpg and png formats, and of course the jpg Digi Stamp Image as well.

I have had a couple of comments from  Silverbutterfly about not being able to download my images, I am sorry about that.  I can honestly say I am not sure what the problem is.  As far as I am aware no one else is having a persistent problem like yours.  Occasionally '4Shared' do have problems, which they fix as soon as possible, but as I said I am not aware of any problems from them.  All I can say is to delete your computer cache, maybe there is a glitchy page stored,  clear  your cookies and history and try then.  I hope this fixes the problem for you.

Happy Crafting,
