Shutter Sisters Love


Hello..... Happiest Friday...  How are you?  

Are you ready for the weekend?  Personally I think someone has put my life on fast forward. Aack.... :)

Anyhow, my friends... I am super excited today....

I just have to shout the news... 

I'm the newest Shutter Sister ... aaack!  Somebody pinch me!.  Please.....  

I am just so thrilled about this new gig... I can't even tell you! woot...wooot.....

I heart the Shutter Sisters.  I mean BIG HEART!

I am over at the SS site today...sharing some art love.  If you haven't stopped by... I'd sure love to see you there...  and please share your 'tools of the trade' if you wish... I'd love to check them out!

I can't stay long today...  But I wanted to pop in and share my SS news....and of course offer up a sweet little freebie texture while I am here.

I call it celebrate... I think it's a good one.... but I haven't had much time to play with it.  I guess I will let you all test it out... pretty please....

Speaking of testing it out...  if you are a texture newbie.. pop over and check out my mini eCourse 'Learn Textures in Ten'... it's free... ready and waiting for you.....  

(just a little secret, between you and me.....there may be some goodies in the classroom as well.... ) 

Okie doke... here's my newest texture - Celebrate....  The base of this baby was peeled off the wall of an abandoned house. :)  Can you say musty?  :)   But you gotta love it!

Today I'm sharing the link... with you all!  

Click HERE to download it....

Want more freebies?  Join my texture lovin' list...and get a texture lovin' package in your email right away.

Signing off...wishing you a most fabulous weekend...  

Love & gratitude...xxo, Kim

p.s. if i owe you an email... I will be catching up later this evening.....  :)
