Digital Tuesday - Sweet Birthday


The girls over on the Digital Tuesday blog host a challenge every week to use your digital stamps! There's a different theme each week, and I thought I'd play along since my Digital Stamp Oasis stamps were feeling a little neglected. This week's theme is Sweet Birthdays and the challenge is to create something for a birthday that includes something sweet! So I stopped in at my favorite bulk food store, and found that they had gumballs! You know, the kind we used to get in a gumball machine for a penny? (Do they even make those anymore? My kids never used to beg for money for those machines, so I haven't paid attention to them in years!) Wouldn't this be a sweet little treat to leave on the desk of a gum-loving co-worker who is celebrating a birthday?

I got these little jars at Hobby Lobby years ago, and am happy to finally have a use for them! My sweet party squirrel is from Digital Stamp Oasis, and the sentiment around the band is from My Favorite Things. I knew I wanted the tag on the left side of my jar, so before printing I flipped the image so he'd be facing the other way. That's one of the neat things about digi images... you can flip them and change the size!

So why not show your digital stamps a little lovin' this week and give their challenge a try!? Don't have any digital stamps? Ellie has a great selection of them in her Etsy store, or check out the links in the sidebar of the Digital Tuesday blog for other great digi-stamp companies!

Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate it so much!

What a fantastic little treat gift!! Love this little "nut chompin" image and your coloring is awesome as always! I really love how colorful the gumballs are!!
I think they still make 'gumball machines' ... you just don't find them in EVERY store like you used to. I nearly went broke giving Carolyn money for the machine everytime we walked into or out of a store!! LOL!!
