A Four Letter Word!

Vicki - Stamped Smiles
Hello friends!  I'm here today to talk to you about a "four-letter" word called:  L-O-V-E!
I think this image is a great representation of it too!!  This is the sweet image by Elisabeth Bell is called Beary Big Hugs.  Do you remember being young and having your favorite doll/toy that went with you everywhere?  With Valentine's Day coming around the corner, can you think of someone who needs a big hug like this from you?  Be sure to let the ones you love know how you feel about them....because after all, love IS just a "four-letter" word until someone comes along and gives it meaning!  :)

I have used many things that I love on this card including the image itself.  The Copics are something that I love to color with, the hearts, the pink colors, the shimmer papers, yummy ribbon, flowers and pearls...and once upon a time, I collected teddy bears and had loved them throughout childhood.  So I hope you've enjoyed sharing my "love" of crafty things!

I thought that I would also enter this card for a few challenges that I've done:
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - couples (i think so!)
A Spoonful of Sugar - Valentines
Everybody Art - My Favorite Thing
Top Tip Tuesday - flowers
Charisma Cardz - Valentines/Love
Crafty Sentiments - Favorite Things
Delightful Challenges - Have a Heart

And speaking of challenges, please BE SURE to read the "new rules" that have been posted on the Belles 'n Whistles Challenge Blog as now you can use ANY Elisabeth Bell image to play!  So be sure to follow along and join with us for future challenges! We'd love to have you play!
Thanks so much for stopping by friends!!  Enjoy your day!  HUGS
