SOS Challenge #29 - Digi Image or Recycled Card

Happy Tuesday! It's time for another Shopping Our Stash challenge! This week it's Digis. That means you need to go to your computer and find one of the OMG I NEED TO OWN THIS RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE digi files that you have never used, print it, and USE IT to make a card. If your digi file is from Bugaboo - our sponsor this week, it doesn't have to be a virgin image. So digi or Bugaboo. Got that?

Don't have any digi files? How about a sentiment you've always wished you had, but couldn't find on a stamp! Type it into your computer, print it out, and there you have it: a digital image. At least in MY world that counts as digital. :) Also, one time I printed words as a background on a card. You could do that, too.

No printer? No problem! You can use an old card you got and recycle it into a new one! LOTS OF OPTIONS, people. LOTS.

Well, I just happened to have a virgin Bugaboo image! I DID! Okay, maybe I have a lot of them, but work with me here.

Here's my card:

This card is all stash, and yes, I am very proud. I die-cut the green scalloped rectangle and the pink circle from remnants of Lucky Limeade and Regal Rose, respectively. The patterned paper was from a piece of Basic Grey olivia paper that is still out because ... I don't know why. It just is.

I colored the image with Copics and Touch Twin markers (I'm an equal-opportunity collector). Gus needed dark socks and a white T-shirt. I added stripes to his boxers using a Copic multi-liner and colored just the stripes green.

The froo-froo-y die was used because it fit the random size of the printed sentiment; plus, I don't think I've ever used it, so there's another no-longer-virgin item. The Lucky Limeade layer under the patterned paper was also cut from a remnant, and the Lucky Limeade ribbon is from an "I must have these in all colors" shopping moment, so it is totally "stash".

Finally, I took out one of my "oh, I must have these, all of them" Sakura glitter gel pen sets and used the hot pink one to color the heart and to add dots around the sentiment. You just never know when you might need a glitter pen. I had to have them. HAD TO. (did, too)

There you have it - a virgin Bugaboo digi file, and an irreverent anniversary card I hope to sell this weekend.

Now, it's your turn! Find an un-used and forgotten digi file (or create one, like we've already discussed above), or use parts of an old card, make a new card with it, then come on over to Shopping Our Stash and link us so we can see what you've made!

Thanks for stopping by!
