Inspirational Card Using DS4J "Bathroom Selfie" Digi

Hello!  I started to say "Good Morning"; (It will be evening here when this post goes live.) but I realized many of you are on different time zones.  Isn't this a marvelous Internet age!  I just love the fact that I can talk to and be friends with people all around the world; even if I don't speak their language.  What a great time to be alive!  I am sure technology will continue to improve over the years and this age will be referred to the younger generation as "old style" in the future.  LOL!  

I rarely have time to participate in Digi Stamps 4 Joy Sunday New Release; but I had to this time; because of the choice of digis.  I fell in love with all of them; and had to pick one.  This one is my favorite.  I hope you love these new releases as much as I did.  If you haven't tried working with a Digi in the past; just watch some videos and jump in.  It is so much fun!  I have a couple videos at on YouTube.  Click here for the link.  I love stamping with CTMH clear acrylix stamps as well; but I love being able to combine the two.  It makes creating even better.

I used a Mojo Monday sketch; which I haven't done for quite a while either.  Normally I am working on my cards ahead of time; so I can't enter the challenges unless it is the same week.  I got lucky on this one.  I love this sketch.  It was so much fun.  I love following sketches; and had forgotten how much easier it is for me to create when I have a guide to go by.  LOL!
