Me + You = US

Here's a lovely image from Sherri Baldy for this week's challenge at the SSS Challenge Blog.  The contest is Anything Goes + Valentine.  I am using the cutest new image and coloring in browns and greens to get myself to start loving a new color combo.  I hope you all like it as well.

Drop by the SSS challenge blog and join in the fun to win wonderful stamps from artist Sherri Baldy!  I am also happy to say that Sherri is joining in on my celebration. She's been a dear friend for many years and will be giving away digi stamp prizes. 

So, question of the day, Are you a Besties Lover?  Do you use Digi Stamps?

Did you sign up yesterday? it's the main blog candy sign up for the month and will have winner's drawn all month long, so be sure and go sign up if you haven't already.  Else, leave a comment each day as winners will get picked everyday!

Nice job on the card and great color combinations. I especially like the green corner die cuts and the "M+You" embellishment.

What a pretty card Holley!!

Natalie said...

I use digis a lot since I'm on Design Teams. But I love using classic, too. :)

Melody Strahan said...

I think the Besties are cute, but cute isn't really what I use a lot of. I use more nature inspired images and animals. I used to use digis a lot when I had a printer. Since I can't seem to find one that lasts more than a year though, I have been laying out a document and taking them to the print shop. I still use my digis occasionally, but not as much as I used to! lol

Sherry said...

I have never used digis I love the physical part of stamping.Interesting card vry unusual! Thanks for sharing

Darling card, Holley. I love your coloring and all the little bits on your layout.

cebelica said...

Too cute. And great colours too! :)
Oh yes, I like Besties. I think they are very cute. I even have a couple of their digi images, but I have to admit I have never used any of them. *ooops* The reason for this is that I do most of my colouring with distress inks and if I use a digi I'm always scared that the ink will smudge and ruin my colouring.
Hugs! xx

Susan Slomski said...

Stunning card! I love the Besties and do own a couple. I use digi stams sometimes although I do tend to use my real stamps mostly.

Cindy said...

Robin N said...

I'm just learning to color with spectrum noir markers..dont have any besties yet... :)

Kaye Greening said...

I love the green and brown combo. I use Besties and Digi stamps, but tend not to use "wet" pens as they run, so reverted to coloured pencils ,,,, they do a good job.

vinita jain said...

Such a beautiful image, fab creation!!

KT Fit Kitty said...

This is so cute! I love all the details you added and the fabulous sentiment! I think Besties are adorable! I use digi stamps all the time, probably more than my rubber/clear stamps, although I'm trying to do more traditional stamping now as one of my 2015 crafty goals.

Marjeta said...

These colour combination is beautiful and so the image.

Teresa said...

I do like the Bestie's images - they have such pretty eyes! You did a great job with this one Holley....and as for digis in general, I LOVE them!! xx

Shelley said...

Beautiful job coloring the images and great combos on the card! I am not fond of the Besties for my own use and have not yet used digi stamps. I really do not want to have to use the printer at all and prefer rubber :)

Betsy said...

Love all the buttons and do-dads on this card!

Larisa said...

So bright and beautiful with gorgeous embellishments. I love this.

DJ said...

Lovely card. Yes I use digital stamps. I love Sherri's Besties and have made some cards with the images.

riliska said...

This is such a fun card.

Karenladd said...

Oh my,, this is so adorable and I LOVE the combination of green with pink! I don't use digi stamps much at all because my printer bit the dust awhile back and haven't gotten a new one. I am a lover of clear and rubber stamps but I do have a few digis.

Laila B. said...

Lovely card!!! And great color combo....I have to try it someday!! I use digis and have some lovely Besties in my inventory!!! Hugs, Laila

SHartl said...

Love your card but I don't use digi stamps at all because my printer isn't the best. I have tried coloring them once but everything smeared...sigh

Rhonda Miller said...

This is beautiful. I love the embossing.

I love the Besties, but have never used any of them. I love digis.

Pat said...

Very pretty color combo, Holley! Love the lettering. I like Besties, but don't have a lot. I really love digis as you can print on patterned papers, resize them, print in color and even digitally color them!

Scrapbook Blessings Club said...

Love your card. I have over 50 besties digi, now I am working on my bestie stamp collection, lol.

Hugs,
Sandy

Gail Behrle said...

Great card! I love her pink hair, the buttons, the color combination and all the other wonderful details in the background. I have not used Besties stamps or Digis yet. I have just recently started stamping and really like it.

maureenjscott said...

Cute card, I love that you've used a winter corner die for a non-wintery card! Fab! mox

Amy#8546(TheTigersHaven) said...

Very cute card... Love that pink hair. You always know the right thing to just make your cards pop with coolness. I do like besties alot... They are wonderful images. I do not own any myself. I do at times like digitals. But mostly like being able to stamp it myself. HUGS

Glennis said...

cute card! - I use digis but have not used besties

Trish said...

Hi Holley, I adore Bestie digis and use them often.
Your card is fabulous. TFS
Hugs,

Vickie Kertz said...

Still love my rubber stamps. Love seeing what others do with digis but it is just not me.

Gemiel said...

What a cute card!! Great color combo and love how you did the sentiment. I don't use digi stamps anymore, just rubber and acrylic.

lora said...

wow! It is so special - the girl with red hair :) I love this couring.

Berina RGA said...

I do use digis at times... but not very frequently... as I do not have a printer at home, it is difficult to take print outs... I do have a few besties images... but haven't used them much.. beautiful card... lovely girl..

ionabunny said...

Cute card. Don't really use digi's. Hugz

Audrey R in Austin said...
