More Digi Stamps!

Whew! What a interesting past couple of days! Between rain, broken water pipe, separation anxiety, and teething I am worn out!!! I want my boring life back! :) Anyways...on to the cards.

First up is my card I made for Nina's weekly challenge over at There's Magic in the Air. You had to make a card using her FREE digi stamp, ribbon, and a bow! I just love these challenges because I only use scrap paper and who doesn't have a ton of that! Since you can color these images anyway you want I just pick out some paper I like and color it to match! I thought this one turned out pretty cute and I just had to add a flower and of course it had to match the one in his mouth! Isn't this image fun!

Next up is my card I made for Helen's challenge at Scrap A Little (bet you can't tell which blogs I visit the most), you had to make something with a butterfly on it. So, I found another digi stamp and here we go!
Can't wait to hear what you think!

I'm sad! No one, not one single person visited my blog today! Windy, you must have been busy! :) Oh well! Well, it's that time of the month again, NO not THAT time! It's flea market time!!! Yay, I hope we find some great stuff tomorrow! I may even post whatever I buy if it's really good. Can't wait!

I scored.....

...lines on this card! :) Cheesy I know. Today I finally did something I haven't done in a long time! I sat down to make a card with a certain stamp and actually made a card! And it didn't take me forever!

This week over at There's Magic in the Air you can snag a free digital stamp from Nina and you can enter their challenge. The challenge was to emboss or score something. I wasn't pleased with how my embossing looked so I thought I would score some lines around my image and I really like the way it looks!
I'm also going to mail this card to Ida for her blog candy! Hope she likes it! :)

I don't have any cards to share but I just wanted to say something. I just noticed that my counter on my blog went from about 300 to 11,000 in a few days! How weird is that?? Is that even right?? So, if you are visiting my page, please leave me a comment so I'll know you've been here! If I get enough visitors I may just have some blog candy to give away! Thanks!

Digi Stamps!

I have recently started using digi stamps (well trying) and I have to say, I'm really loving them! Now, I'm not really that good at coloring and I don't have any of those fancy pencils or markers but I still really like them! I use regular Crayola colored pencils to color mine or I don't color them at all! I needed to make a birthday card for my father in law so I went searching the net for some free "manly" digi stamps. I found this great site, Digital Two for Tuesday. Every Tuesday you can get two free digital stamps! How's that for feeding your addiction??? :) But they aren't actually stamps, they are pictures and what not from old books! So there are old cars and pictures of ladies from the 1900's, very cool. Anyway, I got a couple and tried them out. The first one I printed on tan (sorry no fancy name here) cardstock, inked the edges and just layered it on navy blue paper. I LOVE this card! It's one of those you really don't want to give away, ya know. He really liked it too, I think! :)
This next one is for my brother in law as a thank card. I always struggle with man cards but I thought he might like this because he's a kid at heart. I printed this and colored it with colored pencils. Now, if this card had been for a woman, I would have put flowers and bows on it and called it a day, but boys don't like that kind of stuff (pfft!) So, I picked an old button out of the stash my hubby's grandmother gave me and put a little twine through it. I also layered my picture onto kraft cardstock I had run through the crimper to give it that cardboardy look. I'm still working on shading, but I think it turned out pretty well!
And last, but not least, a girly card! I made this as a thank you for my mother in law. I was going for a vintage look here and I think I pulled it off. The red rose picture is actually a tag I believe was torn off an old stationary box. It's a ad for Ladies Stationary. I just love stuff like that, it's another flea market find! :) My fav.

Well, that's all for today! I'm going to attempt to sleep again! Thanks for reading!
