Reborn Activity and You CAN Win It!

TGIS. . . . yup that's my new mantra. Can you figure it out?

Thank God It's Summer.

I feel so FREE!

I can now create and recreate as I feel like it. I know that time flies and I don't want to feel pressured at the end of the summer to do something, I have started already to get cracking!

My time is FREE now!

I (like many of you) have found some of my original projects are lacking luster and pizazz! So what could be more fun than to fancy them up! Today I'm going to highlight one of my first projects. It's still an important one, but I've changed the backgrounds and added another element to the activity.

This is a practice on adding with and without regrouping. 

The coolish clipart is from Corinna Gandara at Surfing Through Second. It's called All American Reds (even though it's the yellow stars!) And it's a free download, so git cher butt over there to pick this up. Don't forget to leave her some lovin' since she is giving this to you for free!

The colorful stars are from Creative Clips at the Creative Chalkboard. The striped stars are free also. The link for the polka dotted stars is here and they are free too. Don't you just love all these cute graphics. I am a big fan of both of these girls. I hope you are too and if you're not, check them out and you just may become one of their followers too. And as always if you grab something from them, don't forget to leave some feedback. 

(It's amazing the number of people who will download something for free and not leave one little word. As a seller we can see how many downloads we have, plus how many have left comments. I see it this way.... they gave it to me for free, the least I can do is say how much I like it!)

If you would like to have this set of Addition cards, please leave me your email address and tell me if you are followers of either of these girls, or both. On Tuesday I will pick two random names to award these to for free! I see a theme going on here. . . FREE!
