A new small Freebie!

Hi all, Hopefully I don't have anymore server trouble today!!  Missi and Brandi and still neck and neck in the, who post's the most, contest.  But you never know someone might come up from behind and shock us all.  The contest will end at Midnight Tonight (Sunday) PST. Good luck girls!!

I have already made so many friends!!  It has been even better than my wildest expectations!!  I sit here with tears in my eyes, so thankful for you all!! And to God for giving me this gift!! I haven't really talked much about my health problems, but for the last 5 years  have been very sick!!  I completely lost "myself" to a blood clotting disorder called APS.  It causes me to have small strokes often, leaving me somewhat disabled and just totally reeking havoc on my life. For years I thought I should just give up, and wilt away. 

When I started Digi Scrapping I loved it instantly!! I slowly stared to look for forums and fun spots to do challenges.  And of course freebie hunting!!  My sister Julie kept telling me I should start a blog, but I didn't think I had much to blog about.  Then one day while composing an e-mail for her with a list of all the freebies I found that day, it hit me.... I should start a freebie blog!!  The rest is history :) 

My first kit , Beach Glass, was such a success that is when I decided to open my own place.  I hope you all keep coming and having fun with me!!! Thank you to all of you!! It has been so fun to blog hop and see so many of you talking about little ol' me :)  I thank you so much for your support and encouragement!!

I think the most fun I have had this weekend was playing Truth or Dare!!!!  It was so funny- I was literally laughing out loud!!!  I was thinking maybe I would plan a time like once a month to play a big game of Truth or Dare... what do you all think??  But please feel free to stop by and play all the games any time :) I hope you will join us for some challenges, my CT girls have lots of goodies for you... and I have chances to win $5.00 to my shop on most all of them his month.

Ok - enough yakking :)  I made this little freebie for you all. It is in the store in the freebie section. It will stay free so no rush.

Update

Here is the message from them this time- So annoying!!!!

"Hello Ginger

Server 19 is having problems today. Techs. are looking at the server and will have to replace a hard drive. So server 19 will be up and down this afternoon.

We're sorry for the inconvenience! Thanks so much and we are truly sorry about this. Please let us know if there is anything we can do:O)"

So I guess keep checking.... I think I might change servers- I will have to look into it.....
Thanks for being patient :)

UUUGGGGG

UUGGG- down again.... sorry ladies- I sent my sever a message AGAIN!
Hope it is back up soon!!

Everything is back up and running

Everything is back up and running- Hope to see you there!!

Site problem info

Hi all - something is wrong with my site at the moment.... It will be fixed as soon as possible- It looks like an issue with my server.
If it persists I will extend all the grand opening goodies -
So don't worry- you won't miss anything :)
They way Missi and Brandi have been posting ... no wonder the server went down LOL!!!!!
They are just cracking me up....It has been so fun!!
And that Truth or Dare- oh my goodness- soooooo funny!!!!!!!! You should go read through how we have all been torturing each other!!!!!

*Note*

*Some freebies only last for 1 day... and depending on your time zone by the time you get here you might only have a short time to download. If you like something get it ASAP! You just never know some freebies last a long time and some expire very quickly. If you get to a page and the freebie is not there most likely it has expired.*
