My First Digi Stamp

Hi everyone! Hope you've had a fun and safe July 4th!! What did you do?? The weather here today alternated between scattered showers and above average temps. Plus hubby and part of my family still had to work today, so I spent a quiet day at home. It was okay, those definitely come in handy from time to time! So being festive with the holiday and all, I wanted to share a July 4th card I made today...using my FIRST digital stamp!!
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug, Dies: Spellbinders
Patterned Paper: Reminisce, Sentiment: Northwood  Stamp Co.

Yes, I have switched to the dark side, lol...I never thought I would do it! Even though the images some of these companies have designed are totally awesome, the downloading, sizing, and storage seemed a little TOO techie for me! However, I finally just made up my mind to try one...one little digi to see if I could do it. If I messed up, I could easily go back to my pre-digi stamp existence, admiring all the cards and projects I've seen in various galleries from the sidelines. 

The flag and fireworks image is a Robert Jackson digital image. I colored it with copics and highlighted the image with a few rhinestones. I'm submitting it in the 4th of July challenge over on SOC. For those of you out there still uncertain about trying digitals, give it a try! I'm definitely doing it again soon, but that means I have to really step up practicing with my copics! Now that will be a bigger mountain to challenge than using the digis....**groan, sigh** Y'all pray for me, lol

That's all I have for now...Take care!
...And That's All She Wrote
