CT SNAG SET ~ Thankful Friends




A very happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans tomorrow--and for all my fans and followers, I am thankful for your follows, FB likes and the fact that you enjoy the graphics and designs I can share with you.  Thus, today's snag set uses Graphfreaks' lovely Native American maiden Takenya.  She comes with a bonus Pilgrim girl named Alice Mullins, so you get two Graphfreaks girls for the price of one.  I have paired them with an FTU kit by Rockin's Ruckus called "Give Thanks".

You can purchase the Takenya and Alice pack at S&CO.

CT SNAG SET ~ Candice Christmas


It's beginning to feel a little like Christmas--and Christmas is Stormlight's favorite holiday, so I'm getting a slightly early start with this new Graphfreaks snag set.  Candice is a lovely GF girl who works for winter OR Christmas with her snowflake patterned sweater-dress.  I paired her with a retired kit by A Taggers Scrap from SATC but she will go well with any winter or Christmas kit.

You can purchase Candice at S&CO.
