How to Catch a Heart

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Happy Valentine's Day!  I've enjoyed my blogging break so much but decided I'd better get back over here before everyone forgot who I was.  I've really missed seeing everyone's wonderful creations while I was gone and will get by your blog as soon as possible.   Christmas was nice ( and way too LONG), New Years is almost here, and Valentine's Day is right around the corner.

I know this card is beyond being clean and simple but I just had to do something with this image to show how cute it was.  At least it'll be a very easy card to mail!  I just haven't had a whole lot of time with company coming and going and basically just being a total bum!  

This image (pre-colored) is from Deedee's Digi's.  In case you missed the news, Deedee's Digis is closing it's shop.  So sad and I also understand that other shops are having to close too.  All this is due to some type of new European tax law.   However, the good news is that Deedee's Digis will be open until around the end of January AND if you create a card using a Deedee's image and enter the challenge this month you will receive a $10.00 gift code to the shop!!!  WooHoo!  You can stock up on all those cute digi's she has!!  That's all there is to it!  Create the card and received a $10.00 gift code!  Also........all who enter will be entered into a drawing for a $50.00 gift code to the shop!  Can't get any better than that for sure.  Check it out!

I'll be back shortly!

Thanks for stopping by.......
Lynn

This is so cute Lyn and a perfect sentiment for the image. I didn't know this shop was closing... I've heard of a few and you are right, it is sad and unfortunate.

This is an adorable card Lynn! I love the CAS design of it and I love that cute sentiment along with that cute image. I know it is so sad that the digi companies are having to close due to this new tax law, shame but it is so nice to get these digi's before DeeDee closes! Hugs, Brenda

Whoo-Hoo! So cute & fun. Love how you've used this little sweetie and the card design. Got a happy mail from DeeDee's this morning that YAY! She's found a way to keep the store open! I missed this guy (I think) so will have to get busy and use some of the nifty designs I downloaded while away! Will be playing catchup for a bit! TFS

This is purely adorable in its CASness!
The new tax law is certainly screwing things up for lots of small businesses :(
