Harvest Time


Wow, I've been AWOL for almost a week my friends!

I won't bore you with insignificant details of my personal life, but lets just say that I wasn't laying around relaxing while I was gone! *chuckle*

I made this card for our Tuesday Throwdown challenge this week. The theme is: anything goes! Yep, not much of a challenge is it? Unless you like being told what to do that is...*wink*
It's a freebie this week, so why not link one of your cards to our challenge blog for a chance to win!

I used some adorable digital images from Dee Dee's Digis for this card and I have to say that I have done a180 turnaround in my opinion of digital images. Originally I didn't care for digital stamps, but now that I've really figured out how to use them, I LOVE how easy they are to manipulate! 
They allow me so much more flexibilty than traditional stamps. I can resize them to fit my sketch, rotate, flip, or mirror image them, and even completely change the layout of the sentiments! LOVE it!
Here's a picture of the set I used, Harvest Love. Notice the sentiment I used on my card looks NOTHING like it does in the original file. Cool, huh? And at only $3, it's a steal!


I also used some scrumptious orange and ivory May Arts ribbon from here. Gorgeous stuff, I tell ya.
I hope you'll join us at Tuesday Throwdown this week...you can submit anything because our theme is anything goes!

Thanks for stopping by today, have a good one!
*mwah*

Oh my! I gotta find that ribbon. It's gorgeous. Ok, so I've not been a fan of the digital images either. I'm not sure why not, and this card makes me want to rethink that stance. Really like the colors and the layout.

LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE your card. It so reminds me of the weather here in Minnesota right now.

I think I need a tutorial on how you manipulate the digital stamps the way you do. I only know how to resize the image.
