Going Grey With Scrap-Creations Challenge: Doing it Digi!

Happy Tuesday! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Did you do anything FUN??? I have to admit, since the semester has started, my time with my family and for my self has been really limited. I mean REALLY, limited, but this weekend was one of the best weekends I have had in a LONG time. Friday night I hosted a Arbonne party, and the demonstrator was a friend, so it really was a girls night, with a few drinks, great conversation and lots of laughs. Then on Saturday, I spent the day stamping with Mary, Peggy, Pia, Michelle, and Donna, and as always that was SUPER fun.....even with the 11/2 (personal joke), and then Saturday night, Hubby and I went to a Haunted House, and the kids got to spend some time with my parents and some extended family, that was a great evening for all. Then on Sunday, we hosted our annual neighborhood Halloween party, and then we took the kids to our Karate pumpkin tournament, where they got to go trick-or-treating. As you can see, we had a action packed weekend, but a wonderful one, and best of all, I gave myself the weekend off, and I didn't pick up one single book wahoooo.......
Ok, I am super excited about this weeks challenge, as it has become my favorite way to create, and no, it's not Halloween (even know if I coud, I would make every card Halloween LOL). This week, we want to see what you can do with your Digis.....Digi image and Digi paper! I know some of you still use rubber, but I have to admit, I am mostly a DIGI girl. I would say that 98% of my images are digi. It is extremely rare, that I will buy a rubber stamp. Why you ask? Well, with so many amazing artist out there sharing there artwork, I can't image being limited to to just rubber stamps. Also, there are so many reason to use Digi: storage, sizing, access ability, not to mention the amount and different styles available. So, not only did I use a Digi image, I also used digi paper. I bet you couldn't even tell it was digi paper! The Digi image I used on my card is from Whimsy and Stars Studio, and the AMAZING paper I used is from Bearly mine, and it was FREE!!!! Now if you take a close look to Mary, Peggy and my card, you will notice that we ALL used the same DIgi paper...hahahaha....and none of knew that each other was using that paper until we all sat together on Saturday and made our cards...LOL, BUT, I bet you didn't even notice, because our cards are all so different!
So, with this weeks challenge being all about DIGIs, I think it would be fabulous if we could all share 3 of our favorite Digi companies, AND there will be a prize! I will randomly choose I person from our comments section and give them a $10.00 GC to their #1 digi company. SO when you are commenting and leaving your list of 3 store, please be sure to have your #1 store in your #1 spot!



So, I Will lead off and share my favorites (sorry, I can't limit to just 3)!



1. Tiddly Inks



2. Prairy Fairy



3. Paper Shelter



4. Whimsey Stars Studio



5. Kenny K



Oh my gosh, I am going to stop, as I could go on forever!

Ha! I cheated! :) I'm with you - I just adore digi images and rarely buy rubber anymore. I love the fact that we can size them as big or small as we want, and storage is so easy. Just don't forget to back up your files on a portable drive somewhere, just in case! :)
