Let's Go Digital!

Greetings everyone and Happy Monday. Of course Monday's mean it is time for another CCEE Stampers challenge .... are you ready to play???

This week our challenge host for the month Frances challenged us all with a supply challenge. This is when we are all sent the same things and have to use those item/s to create our card or project for the challenge. This month Frances decided that we should all go digital.

Have you noticed that Digital Stamps or images (whatever you wish to call them) are becoming very popular in the stamping world. More and more companies are coming out with some wonderful designs that we want to use in our creations of our projects. Some places only sell digital images while some stamp companies are now also coming out with digital images that you can purchase too. Some companies even offer freebies too.

For our challenge today Frances purchased the digital image "End of Summer" for each of the CCEE Stampers from Mo’s Digital Pencil. You will find some wonderful images on this site so check it out and the fun thing about digital images is no waiting for the postie to deliver them. To use digital stamps/images all you need to do is download the image (you may need to purchase it first if it isn't a freebie), open it up on your computer either in you photo editing software or even your word program. One advantages of digital images is that you can resize them, flip them so they face the other way .... how cool is that! Just print them out on your card, color and create away!

While surfing for digital stamps recently I found a great site that lists many of the companies that sell digital images and also those who offer freebies. So just in case you haven't tried digital stamps yet you might want to check it out, you can find it here.

And here is another site that lists digital freebies.

So are you going to play along this week??? All you need to do is to create a card/project using any digital image. Don't have any Once you have created your card/project come back here and link to your card/project to this post using Mr Linky so that we can see what you created. If you upload your card/project to SCS don't forget to include the keyword CCEEC. We can't wait to see what you create!

OK now it is time to check out what the CCEE Stampers created this week.

A last day of summer before Autumn creeps in is what it looks like in here today :D.
Hmmm, I have used digi before and don't remember having trouble colouring them, but over the weekend I had to print an image 3 times before I got it not to smudge. But I'll try to play along later.

Sorry I think I posted my card on the wrong Mr. Linky the first time around.

Morning gals! Great challenge and love the DT cards! I am a little confused. There are two Mr. Linky's for this post so I chose to use the 2nd one as the other two entrants were also digital. Hope I picked right!! :)
