Valentine's Card Using NEW DS4J Release - Batty About You, CTMH Heartstrings paper

Hello friends.  The weather has been gorgeous here in Southern CA this past few days.  It has been in the 70's and 80's; with the low in the 40's.  This is one of the reasons I wanted to live in CA.  LOL!.  I sometimes feel guilty for having good weather; when so many people have really cold and bad weather.  I guess the entire USA can't live in CA.  We are already very crowded.  LOL!

It is time for another DS4J New Release.  We have some adorable new digis.  Click here to visit our DS4J shop to purchase your digis and DS4J Blog; so that you can enter our fabulous monthly challenges. We would love for you to use one of the wonderful DS4J images; so that you can qualify for a chance to win the monthly prize.  Take time to take a peek at the awesome creations from the DT.  We also have a new logo. Isn't he adorable peeking around the corner!?  You can see it on my card below, in our shop and on the blog.  Click DS4J The "O" look and DS4J The "O" Look Coloured to purchase this sweetie.

DS4J is having a 1,000 member challenge on their Facebook page; where you receive a free adorable digi by just creating a card with one of their images, coloring it and entering it on the link.  The links are above for the shop and Facebook page.  Please read the directions; so you will be included!  Happy Creating! 

I have chosen this very cute DS4J Batty About You image for my card.  I rarely create Valentine cards; but this one was so cute; how could I resist.
