Gettin' Digi With It...


Maybe I'm dating myself by using a spin-off of a Will Smith song for a blog post title, but it fits...
Did you see that MFT was giving away FREE digi stamps this weekend? I've been skeptical of these digital stamps, because I like the mess of inky fingers and stuff all over my desk. But I have to say that this digital image was SO easy to download and alter to fit exactly how I wanted it on my card! MFT did attach a stipulation to the free image - you have to use it to make a card to send to someone who could use a pick-up. I chose Flopsey "Pulling for You" and made this card for my aunt, who is undergoing chemo and radiation for a recent cancer diagnosis.
The sketch is from Techno Stamper's weekly sketch challenge, which I have not gotten to play along with in a very long time. The sketches are printed out, but I have not sat at my stamp desk in about 8 weeks (that's how old Carter is now!). Last night I pulled out my new June Bug BG paper pad and got busy. The base is Bazzill, and the flower was from my stash. The sentiment is computer generated, layered on the word window punch and new label punch.
We are having another rainy and cold day here today, and Carter is not napping lately (anyone have any insight into an 8-week old that won't nap?), so who knows if I'll get to stamp again any time soon. But thanks for looking!!
