Make It Monday #122 with Saturated Canary

 
 
Hello and welcome to the first Make It Monday linky party of 2013!!!
 
 
I am excited because we are starting a new year and Michelle has lined up several new sponsors, the first being Saturated Canary. I used Krista's Salute Her digital image on my card & it's in honor of my daughter-in-law, Jessica, who works as a Pharmacy Technician in the U. S. Army. She is the first member of her family to join the military and she has truly dared to be different.
 
I colored the image with Copics and fussy cut it, a kraft panel was embossed with a Stars Impression Plate by TE and I stamped three stars onto vanilla cs with Mossy Mix'd Media Inx by Clearsnap and fussy cut those out too. Pop dots were used to add dimension to my digi image and the kraft panel was adhered to a green base. The sentiment and stars are from Verve stamps and I finished it off with a button and twine combo.
 
 
Pick Of The Week is...
 

 


 
As they say, you can't judge a book by its cover and there's more than meets the eye when you see the inside of this card too. I've included one of several photos Asha shared on her blog of the incredible view of the inside.  Yummy cupcakes, colored to perfection await you and a side shot reveals the amazing design of this card. You can see what I'm talking about by visiting her blog Sunny Summer Crafts and checking it out for yourself. Congrats Asha and thanks for sharing!   
 
 
On another congratulatory note I'd like to wish Michelle the best of luck with her new online store, Pink Paper Paradise Stamp & Colour, which she officially opened yesterday. You can check the details out on her blog here. Congrats Michelle!
 
 
New Online Store
 
 
Be sure to check out the inspiration by my teamies at Make It Monday or click their links on my right sidebar. As for me, I'm happy to be back in blogland after taking some time off to celebrate the holidays with my family. It was fun to be together again but it's also good to get back into the groove of normal everyday life. ;) 
 
Thanks for dropping by and spending some time with me today! 
 
Hugs,
Lisa xx
