A card for me, for fun

First of all a big hey, hello to all my new followers.
Yes, I got a chance to make a card for myself after not crafting for what seems like an eternity! 
What's kept me busy?......I've been putting up the Christmas tree & house decorations (thereby rearranging the living room causing some highly neglected and necessary dusting), treating my chest infected babes to facemask treatments at the hospital 2-3X /day, arranging appointments, doing laundry, shopping for Christmas (mostly on line or by phone), gathering stuff for some blog candy & buying an iPhone (& trying to figure out how to operate the dang thing; thank gawd my hubby & 10 yr old daughter know what to

I thought I owed it to myself to make a card for me, for fun, for no reason at all! 
I have had this suh-weet image called Steampunk from Saturated Canary colored for quite sometime, & have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use her. What better reason than an anything goes at the Saturated Canary Challenge #5!! 

Papers are Websters Pages. Ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbons and the large chipboard flower is from a pack of chipboard pieces I bought off of eBay. The small white crocheted flower is from my former DT boss Kim (@JustWordz) & the dew drops were a gift from another former JustWordz teamie, Tara, who  hand colored them herself.  Sentiment is from SU & wee mirror butterfly is from Dollarama baby!! 

Please pop by in a couple days, I should have some Candy posted by December 1st! 
Stay tuned! 

This is by far my fave project from this past week!

Tee hee Cor I think I'm living my life in parallel with yours! You already know about my trips to the hospital for similar probs with small son and tomorrow is decoration day in our house which has resulted in far too much cleaning needed doing and far too much dust hiding! I also want an i phone but will prob have my 10yr old teach me how to use it too!! This is another fab SC card love the colours you have chosen for her, the most fun cards are just for fun cards! hugs rebekah xx
