A little Thank You from Saturated Canary

Ok Hi everyone.. Happy Monday to you all.. I my self am still up and can not get my self to sleep. So I thought I would post my 2nd card with my Sweet Saturated Canary image. 

This one is "Thank You"... and I am just head over heals in LOVE with her.. I mean her eyes.. She can have anything she ask for;  just by looking at you with those eyes.. 

Don't you just love how she has her hand on her dress as she is ready to do a little "curtsy" as she says' Thank You. I used Echo Park. DP.. and added a ribbon from my stash and wanted to add a little bling so I added the swirl flourish.
Here is a close up of her.. I colored her with my Prisma and OMS.. But again I will be coloring her again. as I want to go a little darker and heavier with my Prisma and OMS> I do really like how her hair turned out though.. 

and here is the inside of my card. again just using the left over pieces that I have to add a little color to the inside.

 Ok I will be adding more images,or may this one for sure as I get to color them again.

A Bevy of Butterflies with "Unity"

OK.. did you miss Me.. hehehe I am back with my second post for the day.. I have had this card on my computer for the last few days, but did not get a chance to post it until today!!!. I am soo "Excited about this post because it is my very first card that I made using images from "Unity Stamp Co.".. yeahhhhh . I know every one has seen all the wonderful images that they have to offer, and I have been a follower of theirs for sometime too.. But not until I liked on FB and start following that, more and more of their lovelyness was being seen by me every day.. Not to mention that I got in on some Amazing Sales on lots of their stamps and kits. 
So Here is my "First Card" that I am showing, using one of the most "Beautiful set of Butterflies".
Bevy of Butterflies
I show cased a card the other day where I made a "desk top calender Easel card.. Well I mention that I had purchased a few of them.. So I wanted to make sure that I got them on projects for a few people that I wanted to give them to.

I made this "Desk Top" Calendar/card for one of the Resident at my Job.. She lost her "cat" the other day and  as you can imagine is very "heart" broken over it.. So I wanted to give her something more that just a "Sympathy card". I wanted to give her a little token to brighten  up her spirit and something that she could look at over and over again.. ( And She really LOVED IT TOO.. :0).. She told me that It meant more to her at this time than "I" could imagine"... and that really made my heart Happy"

I have to say that I got this idea and several others like it,  from a great Tutorial on YouTube..Here is the link if you would like to see it for your self. I started with my PTI Card stock and Two Butterflies from the set. I Stamped the images first on my card stock and then "Paper Pieced" them again on some DP from Basic Gray- "Hopscotch"  I used my Nestibalities to cut out the base for my calendar, added a little scrap of DP and added "Scor Tape" to attached it and pop dot to attached it to the card. ( I may have gone a little over board with my "white gel pen".  Sentiment and Swirl is also from the Stamp Set. and added Glitter. The Pearls are some Gorgeous "flat back pearls" that I got from "Pazzazz  Aplenty" if you have not visited then you really should too.
 Here is a Side view of my card soo you can see how I stamped once on just the card stock.

and I thought it would be Gorgeous to Stamp the Envelope too..So I did with my Memento Lady Bug Ink and added more glitter.

This one has NO stamped images, But waned to show another great Idea for your little Calendar.. and Yes I got this from the Same Channel on YouTube.. and Guess what ( you get to download the Calendar for "Free"

Monday Fun Day is seeing Spots

Hello everyone..Welcome to another Fun day Monday ( Monday Fun day #15 over at the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog. Our Theme this week is a 

Recipe Challenge. Polka dot, PINK and 2 Ribbons. (Do you think you can handle it!!!!!
For my card today,  I combine 2 different projects that I have been working on..  For the first part.. I used the Fabulous Fabulous stamp from the "Blush Society Set".. Please say hello to 

Miss Babette Here self. I think she is so Beautiful and a little Sassy, with her Gorgeous Long (in my case RED hair and her super cute little outfit and Choker.

 Now for the "Second" part I bought a few of these little "desk top" calendar to use in some projects. I know that the New Year has started, But I figured that as Long as I get them done by this week, it should still count.. I had my image colored, I had the calendar already to go, But just did not know what I wanted to do or how I wanted for it to come together.
Then I saw this really cute sketch and some of the work from the DT.. and Finally it "all" came together. I made an Easel card  (as I saw it done)  that opens up to a "Desk Top Calendar"
Here is a Close up of Babette.. I am just head over heals in love with her hair; just look how beautiful it is. I wanted to make her more of a Red head, with Orange high lights.. So I played with a few of my Prisma Pencils, and this is what I came up with. I put her in a Pink dress and added a little green to the bow and trim and her socks.  Of course I had to top it off with a little "bling" soo I added some glitter to the "greens" too.

 I think it turned out "pretty good :0)... I bought my little calendars, but I also found several sights that you can download and print them for "free" My DP is another from "Nikki Sivils...  Hey if I like something I stick with it ( if you could not tell!!!!.... This is her "Ellie's Day Out 6x6 pack. I have had it for a while and have bee several package with them. But I can make more and more (good thing I bought another 6x6 pad to help with that.
Here is a close up of the inside..  I added my sentiment and some Pearls to finish it off.
