Arms Full of Love

Good morning and welcome to a little corner of my world, fellow bloggers!

I'm here to officially announce I am a DT member for DigiStamps4Joy! Yay me! lol I'm so excited about this. I've already learned to do ONE new thing... adding a REAL watermark to my cards! Boy howdy, I got close to crying a little bit but I got it done. At first, I threw up white flags all over the place insisting I could not figure it out on my own but guess what? I. Did! ALL. By Myself... with a little help from YouTube! ;)
So here is my first "official" card for DigiStamps4Joy's SUNDAY RELEASE! So sorry! Didn't mean to yell but you should know by now how excited I get about stuff like this! :) I've used an image called Arms Full of Love, hence the title of my post. Faithful readers should know by now how I like things to be CLEARLY labeled. :) I've colored the image with my beloved Copic markers. The BG paper is from It Takes Two and one I've been hoarding since about 2004-2006ish. Shameful! I know! The rhinestones and pink glittered heart are newer. These are from Hobby Lobby and Michael's, respectively. Brown card stock is from Joann's Fabrics and Crafts. Both sentiments are from a Stampabilities stamp set I purchased from Tuesday Morning. I like to spread my money all over town! ;) I made the corners with my Fiskars Lace 3-in-1 Corner Punch

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Challenge #22 Anything Goes at Sister Act Card Challenges
Challenge #74 Anything Goes (must use always use an image) - Pattie's Creations Design Challenge
Inspire Me Fridays 118 - Anything Goes at Five Simple Things

I am a follower of all three blogs and have badges displayed here.

Image conjured up thoughts of love, chocolate and strawberries first time I laid eyes on it. I couldn't figure out how to add strawberries to the card but red was the next best thing! :) I'm thinking if there are any pessimists out there in blogging world, they'd be thinking it's too late for Valentine's Day. Optimists would be thinking it's way too early but best to be prepared! ;) lol It's none of those really... it's always a perfect time to tell someone you love them! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
