A couple new little girls

The first one is my new digital stamp C.C. Designs Cupcake Brigitta.  These are identical to the rubber stamps that can be purchased.  It is so perfect for the "gotta have it now" mood, because you just buy it for a big disounted price (over the rubber stamp price) and printed out.  She is colored with copics and the cupcakes are topped with a glaze pen to make them look shiny and delicious.  Don't know that it can be seen in the picture.  Label is cut with Spellbinders die on my Vagabond.  The really cool thing about digital stamps is that you can edit them for size, or flip them for a mirror image.  Say, if I wanted to put a message on the left side of the image, I could flip it and have the cupcakes on the right side.  It's not such a big deal with this particular stamp but I can see how that will be very helpful with other stamps.
 This little giggly girl is one of the stamps that I bought in Florida at a scrapbook store "garage sale" where customers brought stuff they wanted to sell.  I have gotten some of the coolest stuff from these kind of sales and for terrific prices!  The die cut flowers in the upper corner are cut from dies that I also bought at that same sale.  Border cut on bottom of stamp mat was cut with EK Success border punch, as is the yellow flowers on the bottom.  .  Lavender flower is fabric cut with Tim Holtz die on the Vagabond.  The little pearls are from some misc stuff from my stash that I've had for years.  It is attached with Ranger Glossy Accents.  I love that stuff, it is so versatile.  I did find out though while in Florida that it takes longer to dry in humid climates.  She is of course, colored with copics. 
I have another card made with a different digital stamp and will post it afer it is received by the person I mailed it to.  Don't want to spoil any surprises :).

This year has started out great and I have found lots of opportunities to slip off to my stamping heaven to play often.
