Two cards Two challenges!

Hellooo Ladies!! 
Hope you all had a great weekend? :)

Grab a cuppa coffee as this is gonna be one long post  I warn you! :)
 My First card is here-

I used Fiskars-For the Birds Stamp set. I colored the rainbow colors using Mr.Huey's watercolors and Koi watercolor brush. The used various distress inks for the sentiment. 
I played along CAS(E) This Sketch # 166.

Now, check out my second card-
I have hand-drawn those flowers with pots using white gel pen. I have also used stamp from My Favorite Things-Adorable elephant stamp set for the butterflies and the sentiment.

I colored using Mr.Heuy's watercolor set and distress ink for black. 

I played along Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #7 - Tag,Kraft,Potted Plants

Before ending, I want to share a thing with you all!

Ladies, do you remember this Calendar that I had made last year in Jan? I hope so!
My hubby was bored of the background and he asked me if he could alter it! That was a surprise to me as he doesn't craft or is never anywhere near crafting! ;)
 He took up this challenge for himself and the calendar background which was like this----

Was made to this! He made the base red and adhered a pattern paper in the background for the new look. He also extended the base so that my altered bottle could accommodate! 

I gladly took the pic of my new altered Calendar background that he made! I am loving it !! What do you think? :)

Hope you had fun stopping by!
Always love what you wanna say! 
Hugs xx
