Sweet Spring Cottage

"Just as there comes a warm sunbeam into every cottage window, so comes a love born of God's care for every need."

~ Nathaniel Hawthorne ~



I created this set of gift tags & stationery
by combining beautiful free graphics
from these sources:

*The Graphics Fairy*
*Bumble Button*

*Green Paper*
*MudBay Images*

*Shadowhouse Creations*

*Vintage Images*


Thank you!

I'm linking up with 
The Graphics Fairy's Brag Monday
Hope you're having a great day!
Thanks for stopping by!

  11. The tags are beautiful, you do such a wonderful job and then share it with us for free. I love the stationery you've been creating.. although I "write" with my computer (I have terrible handwriting). When I was much (much, much) younger one of the things I was always purchasing was beautiful stationery. Thank you so much.

    1. Thank you Kathy ~ I like to give credit where it's due :) It's too bad the original artists will never know their artwork was used digitally ~ makes me wonder what new ways art will be used and shared 100 years from now! I'm so grateful for all the beautiful free graphics offered online!

  17. Hello dear Megan...these tags are delish and such a treat for the spring eyes so weary of gray and windy winter days....thank you ever so kindly for them.

I will use it in my Welcome to Spring ATC's I am making for my group swap...I hope that will be alright with you. I will link back to you and show you the finished ATC's...with you kind purrrrmision of course.

    1. Hello ~ and thank you for your interest. I've never shared how I actually make my digital art. I'm not specially trained in any way, but here's a big tip until I get around to doing a post on it: I use GIMP, free downloadable software. I've never used Photoshop or anything else, so I can't compare them, but I have been very satisfied with the program... especially since it's FREE :)

      Here's the link if you'd like to try it out:
      http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

      I just started playing around and experimenting. I'm still learning new things too, which is fun!

      If you need some free vintage graphics inspiration,
      click on my 'Pinterest' button to the right. I store my favorite free images there, and add more often.

      Hope this helps :)
