I made this using the sketch from last month but see it fits the color challenge...except I don't have white. Does it count or you want me to have white?

A couple people have asked me about digital stamps so I thought I would post a link to some easy instructions that might help you understand what to do with them.
http://www.clearlyistamp.blogspot.com/search/label/digi...

And then here are a couple links that have free digital stamps. The first one has SEVERAL free ones and they come in color and outline which is nice. She has has free with purchase each month.
http://doodlepantry.com/index.php?orderby=product_cdate ...

And this one has a free digital stamp every Friday. It only comes in outline so you will have to color it. You can color it with markers, water color pencils or a digital program.

Kathy, the papers I used on my card are old and from my stash. They came in a kit that I bought back in 2010 from MCS. They are Fresh Print Clothesline by Little Yellow Bicycle. I went to LYB's website and they are retired, no surprise since I've had them almost four years. I'm really trying to shrink my stash!
