Happy Holidays!

I can’t believe it is almost Thanksgiving! So much to do, so little time to do it in. I know it is a little late (all right a lot late), but I wanted to share this haunted tree with you. It turned out so great! Just cut in two different shades of brown, shade around the edges a little and you have got a great 3 dimensional tree! I added 3 ghosts to go along with it. I cut mine out of vellum, chalked a little grey on the bottom. So cute, ok scarey. Hope you like it! All files come in AI, KNK, WPC, GSD, and SVG. Don’t forget to read the TOU.  Download HERE.

This year has been financially hard on me as am I sure it has for many of you. Funny thing, I got a quarter raise and it put me in a different tax bracket so now I take home less money in my paycheck. I asked if I could decline raise and they told me no. Does that make sense to you? That is not why I am hurting tho. My health insurance has gone up, and up, and up! I am paying 3 times as much as I did 4 years ago! Uhggggg!

Why am I telling you this? Because this is one of the reasons I give away free files. I cannot afford to go buy someone else files, so I make my own. I do sell some files at That’s Scrap, Inc. that gives me a little bit of money for my scrapbooking habit. (sales pitch here, hint, hint)

I do have 2 more files to give away, but I am going to make you work for it. I am making some greeting cards for my daughter to have at hand. I stamped most of them, but I wanted to do some fun ones. The first one is Miss Ewe. I pop-dotted her and used googly eyes. The one on the right I flattened the wool a little before I cut it out.  The smaller piece goes on top of her head.

The second one is Ruff Day. I made him a dalmatian by cutting him on while card stock and adding spots.   He turned out so cute.

There’s two ways to get these files, buy a file from me and I will throw these in for free. Email me at If you buy from That’s Scrap, Inc make sure you send me a copy of the sales invoice.  I am Designs by Sky. Important: Put “free file” in the subject line, or I may delete you. You can buy files straight from me and get 10% off listed price. Email me which file you would like and I will send you a paypal invoice. As soon as it clears I will send the files to you, including the free ones.

The second way to get these free files is to give me a saying or two to go along with these files. I need sayings like “Miss Ewe”, “Thank Ewe”, “Ruff Day” or “My dog saw you naked... He says your birthday suit needs ironing”.   Email me a saying to go with these cards. Email me two and I will give you both. Important: Put “Miss Ewe” in the subject line if you want the sheep, or put “Ruff Day” in the subject line if you want the dog, Don’t forget to include your saying. If you give me 2 sayings please add “Miss Ewe had a Ruff Day” in the subject line and I will give you both. Don’t forget the subject line or I may delete you. Email me at This offer is good until December 15, 2010.

Have fun with it! I will be put the sayings on my blog periodically until Dec 15.

Thanks for the cute/scary haunted tree file Rita. I love the way it looks with the vellum ghost.
