Now here is my Card.  The Embossing was done with my Spots and Dots CB Embossing Folder and my Big Shot.  The Patterned Green Paper is from SU! and the Patterned Red Paper is out of the Die Cuts With a View Citrus Pack.  The Card Stock in SU! Certainly Celery, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch and some printed Gross Grain Ribbon from Hobby Lobby.  I also flipped the sketch and the Hearts became Butterfly's!!!
This Lovely Tiny Tots image from The Greeting Farm is colored in these Copics:

Here is one last Side View of my card so you can see the dimension.  The image is popped up using excess Foam from my TGF stamps and the red layer is popped up using two layers of SU Stampin Dimensionals.
Now onto a picture of my Climber in a Predicament.  See Tucker has decided to start climbing out of his High Chair and the first time he did it last night he dumped an entire plate of Spaghetti on the Floor.  Now Yesterday he had the Stomach Flu part of the day and Piper had fallen and hurt her head on the concreate and my Husband is out of town for two days for Business and so when he did this I had to just sit down and laugh or I might have cried I had cleaned up so many messes in just an hours time I was pretty worn out!!!

So this picture came when he tried to climb out of his High Chair and he fell in bottom first and he was stuck because his bottom was in the High Chair and his arms and legs were flailing in the air he was pretty upset but quite comical to Mommy at the time so I took a few pictures!!!!

Well off to play with this very active 2 year old!!!!

Have a Very Stampendous Day Everyone!!!
