Now onto my project. I ended up using the Fairy Fly Away Mae image (which will be released on June 15th) for my card. If you are really interested in some real fun check out SNR for the Some Odd Girls Digi Day today from 10 am to 2 pm. I'm talking challenges, a sale, a freebie and pure fun.

Digital images have a lot to offer when compared to their rubber counterparts. They store easily, can be resized and flipped and can save you a little $$. One of my favorite things to do with Digi's is to change the orientation of the image. In other words create a mirror image to fit my needs. Here's how:

Select and re-size image of choice. I tend to re-size my images to a height of 3.25 inches.



Then go to Image > Rotate Canvas > Flip Canvas Horizontal



You'll end up with this:



It's just as simple as that. Not only that but its like having two stamps in one. Thanks for joining in on the hop.

What a good idea on flipping the image, basically giving you two stamps for the price of one...can't do that with rubber stamps!
