For my card I chose an image from all the ones that I had that comes from Opal manor and can be found here, it's free.  I just thought it was soooo cute!
I used paper from Bazzill Basics - Grandma's Feather bed (perfect for this sleep card right?!?).  I added a recollection flower, some brad, bling, charm and ribbon from my stash.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored using my copics.
Here's the sentiment from Create with TLC  I think it goes perfectly with this image!!!

We have a super sponsor this month - The Stamping Chef, who has graciously offered 3 digis of the lucky winners choice who comment on the Design Team Blog at The Stamping Chef and becomes a follower.  BTW you will love what you see there... the digis are awesome and there are freebies every Friday!  So being a follower will be a great thing for you!

This was the last stop of the line ;). 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!
