Freebie Friday

As we gear up for Devil's Night/Halloween/Samhain/All Souls' Day/All Saints' Day/Dia de los Muertos yadda yadda yadda, Bugaboo Stamps has released a new mini-set of Halloween Blocks that are all treat and no trick. In addition, we've also released a new Sewing Bear set . Hmmm. . .I wonder why that might be important??? ;)

You can purchase additional digi stamps in the Sewing Bear collection here and you can purchase the Halloween Blocks mini-set here. But before you make your way over to the store, take a sneaky-peeky at what the DT's been up to.

Note: Every attempt is made to get digi images uploaded to the store by noon EST for Freebie Friday, but please accept our apologies and check back later in the day if they're not there at that time.
