BIG hugs and warm fuzzies

Good morning everyone! I hope you are having a great Saturday! Ttoday is release day at Squigglefly and if you've been there then you have seen how fabulous they are! The design team has been making some wonderful creations with these images too! And did you get by Mel's blog yesterday and see the delightful Bubbly Baby card she made?

Have you ever had an idea for a card and you can see it perfectly in your head, but when you sit down to actually make it, it ends up looking nothing like you pictured it? Well that's what happened to me with this card

(click to enlarge)

The image is from Squigglefly and is drawn by the very talented Angela Donato. It's called Hugs and when I saw the challenge at Saturday Spotlight was BIG, I immediately wanted to make this card for the challenge simply because Vicki always says "Big Hugs" in her comments. Well, using it for the challenge got scrapped because I couldn't think of anything big to add to the card.

I also had problems doing the out of the box technique in my oval, so that's why it's cut out at the top the way it is. I like the card, but it was way cuter in my head!
The colors I used are for Stef's color challenge on the card universe Squigglefly group and since the paper has little dots on it, I'm also entering it in the Cute Card Thursday challenge.

It's colored with copic markers and the words are computer generated. Now, don't you love that fuzzy font? It's called Fuzzed and I thought it was perfect for the sentiment. If you like it, you can get it free here.

I hope you enjoy your weekend, and thanks for looking!
