What makes a champion

Baseball season is just around the corner ....

With sons, son-in-laws and grandchildren sports has always been quite a large part of our lives.  And, like all mothers and grandmothers .... I sometimes question this.  Why is WINNING the only thing that seems to be important?  I sometimes think the love of just playing gets lost.  I can't tell you how many times I have seen coaches and fathers yelling at their sons or daughters.  And, I find it really unnerving!!!!

My free wordart today is about what .... I THINK IT TAKES TO BE A CHAMPION.

I will not have a layout today ... just because I am not in the mood to do one.  Just being honest.

So, heres my preview.

I am offering this word art two different ways, too.  One with the elements and one with just words.  Here is the example of it with just words.


They are png format today .... having trouble downloading zips for some reason.

Do leave me some comments as that is the only way I know if you like them.  And, I love reading them all.

Hugs, Sue

What is in her hand?

If you look real close ......
what do you see?

An important item of St Patrick's Day is the color green.  Many foolish individuals seem to like getting "pinched" because they don't.  Well, I have gone a step further you see .... I'll just LOCK YOU OUT of all the celebrations if you want to ...... rain on my parade!!!!

Even my littlest "friend" is wearing his green .... sitting on the hand of THIS smiling lassie.

The inspiration of this layout and wordart is from one of my newest friends and designer's Melissa.  The name of the kit is "St. Paddy's Day Kit" by P&A Dezigns.  Her kits are so wonderful.  And, I just love them.  Thank you also, Melissa for all "your words of wisdom" and unbelievable help.  You can find her site at:   http://pandadezigns.blogspot.com/.

Here is a preview of today's free wordart:

You can download at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/7fY-svnd/Lock_you_out.html
As this month comes to a close .... I want to thank everyone that has come for a visit.  It is my pleasure and it is the most fun to create all of these freebies for you.  May this be the start of long and lasting friendships.
Hugs, Sue

p.s.  Hope you all can see my cute little "Irish" frog dressed up in his finest shade of green.

Seeing dreams

Did you know that you can see your dreams anywhere?  It can be captured in a smile.  It can be captured in the silence.  It can be captured in the birth of a child.  It can be captured everywhere.

Today, my freebie is one about this. 

I had just come in from walking in the snow and  I felt that magic. I looked at my wet mittens and realized I was so happy .... because  I just love walking when the snow is falling.    Here is my layout.

And now here as copy of my preview:

And, you can download it at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/2gYgrYct/Seeing_dreams.html

In addition, I want to thank Granny Enchanted for her lovely kit "Positive Encouragement" that was the inspiration not only of my wordart today, but also my layout.  This kit is one that speaks to the heart.  The words are motivational.  If you haven't visited her site lately .... you need to hurry there right now.  You can find her at:  http://grannyenchanted.com/

As always, if this is your first time to my site ..... WELCOME.  I hope this is the start of a great friendship.

Time for another "pumpkin" word art. 

One of my New Year's goals was to try to do more of my scrapbooking layouts.  I was doing really well, but I have slacked off ......

So, needless to say this word art starts with a layout I just completed featuring my newest wordart creation.

Another Christmas Set

I decided not to wait until I had ten in one Christmas folder.  Instead, I have taken ten from different Christmas folders and combined them into this one Chistmas Set2.

Today I need to do some layouts, as I have been pretty slack on doing them this past week.  I will again start posting a new wordart, preview and layout around that day's featured word.  Just need to catch up on all those photographs I've taken.

You can download at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/vFFJ58d9/Christmas_Set2.html

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

No plans today .... hurray.  Just me and my cup of tea and layouts to create.  I even think I will do some pencil drawings this morning.    Hugs always, Sue

Halloween Set #1

It's scary cats, mummies and ghosts to send a shiver up your spine.  Today as a special gift for you.  I have my first Halloween Set.  All of these word arts were done in early January, when I was trying to figure out everything to start offering freebies.  They were my "firsties".  I do hope that they meet with everyone's approval.

Now, I know that I have been doing none stop St. Patrick's Day wordart, but I just needed a break from all "that green" .... lol.

Plus .... if you didn't see the first one I did this morning, you must go and get it, too.  It SNOWED here last night!!!!  Had to get out and take some pictures.  Hopefully, this is the last snow of the season.  I'm ready for spring!!!  Is everyone else as ready as I am.  That freebie has to do with "unnecessary snow".

Daughter-in-law has been having irregular contractions the last couple of days, too.  I wonder if we're going to get a new baby this weekend.  Hummmmmm .... maybe I need to create some baby wordart.  What do you think?

We'll see ........................

Here's the download for the free Halloween Set.  Download at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/fawP8K49/Halloween_word_kit1.html

Oh ..... I also spent part of the morning redoing my blogsite.  Do let me know what you think?  Especially all my "golden" friends.

Hugs, Sue

It snowed again

I don't know about you ....

But, when I opened my curtains this morning, I was not a happy camper.  Another day with new fallen snow isn't exactly what I had in mind at all!  They say ... the first fallen snow is like magic.  Well, that MAGIC is gone!!!!!

The day before yesterday the SNOW finally melted COMPLETELY in our yard.  And, what does the weatherman forecast .... three to five inches overnight.  Is he kidding??????

Now, I love snow in December .... I even tolerate it in January.  But, I thought SPRING was around the corner.

My free wordart today is just a little JAB at the Man Upstairs .... that seems to have quite a sense of humor.

You can download at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/2ZrBZYMB/It_snowed_again.html

Needless to say .... I just think I'll spend all day at this computer and create.

Hugs, Sue

Got time for one more today

I got a brainstorm while I was peeling potatoes

I must say my creative juices sometimes come at the most inconvenient times.  I'm peeling potatoes for dinner to add to my beef stew and wham!!!!  John, my husband is talking about the weekend and how funny it is that our grandson, Elijah likes to stand on his tippy toes.

And I think .... let's combine the two!!!!  So, there it is above.

I swear, I am thinking in wordart now.  He only laughed at me when I said .... "I have to write down my thought"!!!!!  He thinks it is FUNNY that I am talking nonstop about this.  The eyes are his contribution to the wordart.  He said .... it needed something to make it FUNNY!!!!  He is my biggest critic.

I have made it two different ways ... one with the eyes and one just the words.  And, you can download it at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/9cT1MwVy/weekend_appear.html

Time to go for the day ...

Hugs, Sue

A St Patrick's label

A couple of weeks ago, one of my comments that I received was this.  I was told that she always has trouble trying to figure out how to use labels and tags. 

I decided to make my last wordart of the day with her in mind.  Of course, I have continued  making everything this week around St Patrick's Day and this one is no exception.

I am also a great fan of Mark Twain and just love all his words of wisdom.  So, I went and spent about fifteen minutes going through my stash looking for one that I thought would be just right.  And, still have it be appropriate for St Paddy's Day.

This one only comes as a tag/label as I wanted to make this especially for that special friend of mine.

You can download it at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/M04xJr5h/Mark_Twain.html

Laughs do overflow

Again, I wanted to use my latest kit that I have just purchased.  Aren't these little ragdolls just so adorable??  I just can't get enough of these little lassies. 

They are the artwork of one talented artist .... Trina Clark.  She is one of the most creative ladies in digital scrapbooking designs.  Do stop by at http://digiscrapkits.com/

One of the things that I love about my husband .... besides just being Irish ... is he loves to laugh. 

This freebie was created with my thoughts of him.  I do hope that you love it.  And if you are blessed to have a family member that always, always sees .... the glass as half full .... aren't we lucky!!!!

You can download this at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/vzLsS8h6/Laugh_overflows.html

The meaning of family to a grandparent

When I think of my children, no matter which one .... my heart swells inside.  Yet, when I think of my grandchildren, no matter which one .... my heart starts to sing.  I kept trying to find a way to say how much I love them all.  I hope the above word art says it all.

Sometimes those eyes are crying

Sometimes sadness creeps into our day.  This beautiful green eyes lass is still looking for her hero to come.  I do hope she finds him and that he sweeps her right off her feet.

All of today's free word art comes in two forms; one with just words and one with words and elements.

Even though this last one is sad .... her spirit still shines from within.  That is why I did this special, special lady.  Hope you can still find a lovely and unique way to show her in your layout.  Hugs always, Sue

St Patrick's Word Art

This holiday is very special to me because it is my wedding anniversary date.  I am married to an Irish man and what better day to get married on than a day that celebrates St. Patrick's.

Another Oops This Week

I have made another OOPS this week!!!!!  I just don't know where my brain has been at all.  I received a comment letting me know that one of my words are spelled wrong.  I feel somewhat embarrassed due to the fact that I dedicated that word art to my friend, Donna at Donna's Digital Creations.

Here is my corrected version:

The error is was in the spelling of "definitely" .... I previously spelled it "definately".
You can download the corrected word art at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/YPyqKNvO/you_bring_happy.html.  Sorry for the mistake.  Hugs, Sue

Spring Break 2012

Yesterday I spoke with my daughter, Angie and she gave me my idea for my word art for today.  You see, she is a school teacher and she is waiting patiently for "Spring Break".  It's that week off of school that is anticipated by both teachers and students.

Here is a my layout:

I have done the word art four different ways.  One with just the words, one with the pretty lady and the words, one with the pretty lady, words just framed and one completely framed with white background.  I love this little lady so much .... isn't she just darling.

Here is previews of two of the word arts: 

Spring break here we come

As always, if you are new to my site.  I want to extend you a big, warm welcome.  I have been offering free word art for approximately three weeks.  As I do offer my freebies on a daily basis, do stop and sit a spell and catch all the others that are here.  In addition, I have three sets too already.  One of my added bonuses is that when I finish a total of ten (10) freebies in any of my folders I give them also as additional freebies.

Please leave a few words too, to let me know how you like my work.  Hugs, Sue
