1st Digital Stamp

 Digital Stamp~ Whimsy Stamps....A girl and her Overalls, CTMH CS, Eyelets, Liquid Glass. 
 Sentiment Papertrey Ink, DP My Minds Eye {where the heart is} SU Border Scallop Punch, CM Corner Punch, 
 Chalk, Flower,Ribbon HL, Deco Scissors, Pearls, 
 Gel Pen, Copics

Well, this was my first attempt at  digital stamping, a bit challenging as to getting the right size for printing. I have an Epson Stylus Photo Printer RX620... had it 4-5 years} None of the ink ran while coloring.  :)
I ended up using Word to size it.  But I started in Paint and wondered over to PSE, and with a little help from my friends i finished off in Word.  LOL.... Thanks Jeanne, Danni!!
 all my cyber friends!! They are so sweet!!
Charlie took the boys out for target practice with the bows this afternoon. They so need dad time. I'm the bad mom all week.   Nuff said!
I can't remember the last time i sat down to watch a Dr Phil show. But I'll never  forget what he said and  probably still says today... "The greatest influence in a child life, is the same sex parent." 

With it being daylight savings now, Charlie will be getting home an hour earlier every night, but will have to work a few Saturday's. That makes for such a short weekend  for all of us  being together.
Anyway, I'm making chicken soup. Just cooked the chicken, cut up the celery, carrots & onions, now   throw it all together. I'll simmer it most of the day tomorrow. Yummy!!

Well friends, Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great Sunday!
Packers vs Dallas tonight, I'll be glued. :)

Great card, Kari! Great coloring and congrats on the digi stamp. I am sure you can see the benefits. I love the darned things. Pretty much like I love everything else. LOL.

Hey, my hubby traveled for work when the boys were young - not all week long but two to four days, which was enough. I was the mean mom, too. Not always so much fun at the time, but it all turned out OK just like it will for you.

That chicken soup sounds awfully good. Enjoy!

Kari, it sure was worth the effort it took to get this image sized right (and to get it "found" too). Your card is just adorable. Love your coloring and the bright happy colors. Great job.

I'm glad your boys got some Dad time. Moms have to be tough sometimes, but you know what? They will appreciate all we do for them at some point.

Your chicken soup sure sounds yummy! Hope you enjoyed it!

Cute card - I haven't attempted the digi stamps yet - maybe someday! Your chicken noodle soup sounds like a great idea - would be perfect for our snowy weather! Take care, my friend!
