Fabulous Freebie Friday!

TGIF!!  Not sure about you but I sure am looking forward to the weekend!!
While this freebie isn't an image this week, we thought we'd share a little freebie of sentiments and quotes to use with your creations.  You should be able to click on this and save it.  Once you open it, because it is a jpg, you should be able to resize it as you see fit.
Be sure to share your creations using these sentiments by leaving the link in the comment section of our blog!
We can't wait to see what you create!
Happy Friday - TGIF!!
Happy Days!

Terrifically Thrilling Thursday Challange!

Welcome to this week's TTT Challenge - Look at that, Same Bat Time, Same Bat Channel yep, I'm still trying to figure out what's up with the old Batman sitcom thing.  :o)  Were you humming the Batman theme yesterday?  HA HA!
First, we'd like to congratulate Bev on winning the TTT challenge last week - CONGRATS Bev!!
And now, the challenge you've all been waiting for!  :)
Today's challenge is to think outside the box and make a project that is in a shape OTHER than Square!!  We all make square or rectangle cards on a regular basis - so make a card or layout that's a different shape!
This is the round card I made using Shelly's Images "Balancing Act" elephant and the freebie tent that is offered under the Freebie Tab. 
So, let's see what you can do!  Show us your Shape Cards.  Leave us a link below through Mister Linky.  If you use an image from Shelly's Images and win, you'll win 2 images of your choice.  You're free to use other companies images - if you're our weekly winner, you'll win 1 image of your choice.
Good luck - we can't wait to see what you create!
Happy Day!

Marvelous Monday!

Happy Monday everyone! We have a truly Marvelous Monday planned at Shelly's Images. We are releasing our new "Sunflowers" image. Mother's Day is just around the corner and this may be the perfect image for those cards.

Click here to see the "Sunflowers" image at the store. And don't miss the sale price that is good only on release day. Today only, you can get this image for $1 off the regular price. (well...unless Shelly forgets to remove the sale price....which sometimes happens)

This image was so fun to draw. We hope you have as much fun with it as we have. And just to show how much fun we have had here are two stunning cards. Min and Marion really did a great job with these cards! *Update* We have added the fabulous card that Bev made using this weeks new release image. Great cards everyone!

Fabulous Freebie Friday!!

Be sure to visit the store to check out the Fabulous Freebie Friday image. What is it you may ask, a FABULOUS pair of FLIP FLOPS (my absolute FAVORITE kind of foot wear!!) I'd wear my flip flops all winter if I wasn't so worried about getting frost bitten toes!

Shelly has been kind enough to provide two flip flop images - one that is the pair of flip flops already assembled and a second image for anyone who might want to paper piece the flip flops like I did here. Click here to go to the store freebies page to get your own flip flop freebie images.
