Welcome back everyone!!  I'm so happy to see you back here.  From the comments I've read (and I thank you for every single sweet one of them!), I can tell that you guys really like our little robot guy. :)  I love that you are excited as I am about the set!  But enough of that...it's a new day, which brings a whole new round of sneaks!

Today we are featuring more of the FREE Father's Day Digi along with Lakeside Lodge, Moka Bobby, and Moka Tim.  I am sharing TWO projects with you today...first, my card created with the Father's Day Digi.


I kind of went with the latest Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge for my semi-CAS card. :)  I still used patterned paper from the Loyal Project Pantry...the strips are actually straight from one of the sheets.  I just cut out the separate strips and "flagged" them and spaced them a bit apart.  I like the look much better!  So, you are probably wondering, how do I get this FREE Father's Day Digi.  Well, here are the deets:

The Father's Day Digi is FREE with the purchase of any May Release Bundle and there are several to choose from.  The Digi is not being offered for sale.   You will download both an open line image and a 2nd pre-colored image for super fun, quick cards and projects.  You will also be able to download an inspiration sheet showing all of the projects created by the Baker's Dozen this week.  Be sure to check out the Bundle Options on the Specials page on Release Day, Thursday.

Pretty sweet deal, huh?! Ok, I promised two projects though...so here is my Lakeside Lodge card.


I could NOT resist using this sentiment included in the stamp set.  The lodge is fabulous...but I totally dig the boat and sentiment!  Plus, I love stamped waves...way to keep a card simple to create!
Lakeside Lodge is another in the series of Adorable Abode sets, concepted by our very own Jami Sibley, and illustrated by Doug Applegate for his Apple Doodle Ink line of stamps. Get set to kick back, relax, and congratulate someone on their retirement, Father's Day, or to just share that this person just "floats your boat!"  And in case you're wondering, the small patterned paper is from MME Follow Your Heart Be Amazing.

And just in case you may be new to Taylored Expressions, all of the stamps are deeply etched RUBBER, on EZ Mount, ready for your acrylic blocks to stamp!  They are also are PRE-CUT for you and come attached to their own labeled and illustrated, very sturdy panel, that fits and store perfectly in Taylor's Mini Binder Boxes.

Ready to check out what the girls have to share?  I'm ready to see!!

See you back tomorrow!  I can't wait to share tomorrow's!!  Eep!
