Digi-Stamp Card

This certainly has been a week of firsts!  Yesterday, I discovered "Digi Stamps" at 2 Cute Rubber Stamps.  This week, there is a challenge to use a FREE Hula Hamster Digi-Stamp.  He's so cute that I just could not resist.  Plus, it was free so I had nothing to lose!
I used the digi-stamp to make a set of cards.  Each Monday is "Lunchbox Loveletter Lundi" around here.  I make a little cards and tuck them inside each of the lunchboxes (including my husband's).  I had to shrink the image in order to have it small enough for the little cards, but Heidi gives permission for her digi-stamps to be resized as required.  This means that stamps can be just the right size each time!  I punched out each image with a 2-inch circle punch.  I next cut shadowed scallop circles at 2.5 inches using Mini Monograms.  I computer generated my sentiment and did some paper cutting for the other bits.  I felt a bit more was needed, so I used a border punch for the blue shadow runner.  I had to go and buy some markers in order to colour the hamster.  What a great excuse to go to the scrapbooking store!
