3 Saturated Canary cards and a GDT call

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. We went out today to celebrate my daughter's 18th birthday. She is out now with her boyfriend  and the kids are at my sisters so I had time to play tonight.

I have 3 cards to share with you using 3 of Krista Smith's NEW Digi's from Saturated Canary.
She is also having a Guest Design Team CALL for a 3 months spot to join her Saturated Canary girls.

I LOVE Krista's images and own all of them, so I decided to go for it, even though today is the last day.  
I have so much fun creating with her adorable images and my 7 yr old loves them too and she always has to color and make cards with mommy. I have a ton colored just need to find more time to create with them all. hee,hee

Oh I am also entering my card/cards into the Saturated Canary Challenge this week which is to "Dies and Punches"


 This first one is called "Elphie" A Ragamuffin.  Isn't she just the cutest?
I used some Crate Paper 6x6 papers from the 'Emma's Shoppe Collection. I punched 2 different borders on the side of the image added a little tag that I distressed with distressing inks and added some Raffia to the tag hole. I added some Wild Orchid Crafts rose and some more raffia to finish off the flower arrangement.  I think the raffia looks great with this image and her little broom.




This is another one of her New digi's and her name is "Jenny". I used some Cosmo Cricket  6x6 paper from the Odds & Ends pack . I also add a punched border and used 2 different Spellbinder dies to create my  background that little miss Jenny is adhered to. I distressing the edges and added a big Recollections pink flower and the little rose buds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.




Here is the last one called " The Scarecrow" A Ragamuffin.  She has a whole line of characters from the Wizard of Oz.. love, love, love them.


I used some Authenique paper from the "Blissful" 6x6 pack. I added some raffia behind the square to mimic the straw stuffing of the sweet little scarecrow.  I added some Fancy Pants buttons that I adhered on a punched circle and tied with some twine.


All images were colored with copics and if I get time I will come back and edit to add the colors I used on all 3 of these sweet images. I about 45 minutes before the cut off of the  Guess DT call.

I hope you have a great rest of your weekend.  I will be busy making cards and trying to clean up my messy craft space.  I had it clean yesterday and now today it looks as if a tornado has ran through it.

Oh her is a new pic of my daughter Destiny and her boyfriend of over 2 yrs Christian.  I took it with his phone so it's not a great quality pic but I so love this picture of them together.  So sweet.

Just sharing..
