Be Mine

I just fell in love with this paper I found at my local Roberts store. It is a paper that was out for Valentine;s Day. The embossing on the paper is just so fun so I waited for Sally Ann at Digi Stamp Boutique to come out with her new images. When I saw this sweet lady bug image I knew that was the one I wanted to do.

If you haven't guessed by now our sponsor this week for Sweet Sketch Wednesday is
Digi Stamp Boutique. Sally Ann is giving away 6 Digis to our lucky winner. If you play along and comment you have a chance to win. Our design team has some really fun cards this week. You will want to bug on over and take a look.

Be sure to bug on over to Sally Ann's Digi Stamp Boutique store.  She has lots of new sweet digis this month. Sally Ann is a dedicated sponsor each month and we love her digis. I can't begin to thank her enough.
