We have a super sponsor this month - The Stamping Chef,, who has graciously offered 3 digis of the lucky winners choice.

This is FiFi and Bubbles, she is a great digi stamp by Sherri Baldy Stamps.  You can find Fifi and Bubbles by clicking here.  I colored this great digi using my Crayola Colored Pencils blending them with Gamsol.  I also used two of my Copic markers, I used B000 Pale Porcelain Blue, which i used to high light the bubbles, and i used E01 Pink Flamingo to color the flowers on the bath tub and the tub legs.  I embellished the  card with some white lace, then added a string of pinkish lavender pearls and three pink roses with pearls in the centers.

Your next stop along the way of the calendar is Lynne. Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on February 9, 2013, for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!
