Monkey-ing A-Round


My niece's birthday was last week and I realized it ON her birthday! :O

So...I had to make a belated birthday card and send it in the mail. I tucked some moolah into it so I hope she didn't mind it being late. ;)

Here's the rubber stamp I choose for her card. It's from The Greeting Farm.

I started by using my copic markers, E31, E33, and E35, to colour in their fur. Aren't they adorable?!

Well, after I did this, I realized it might be fun to stick with a monochromatic theme. Sort of like a sepia photograph I guess.

And here's the finished card!

Hope she likes it!

My 100th post!

Hi there!

We're experiencing some mild winter weather here in the Toronto area - which I'm loving! I heard the groundhog saw his shadow this morning too. Yay! Spring is on its way. ;)

Our neighbour just had a baby girl they named Scarlett. To congratulate them I made them a card and left them a gift. Here's the card;

I used a layout from this year's Stampin' Up catalogue for this one. Sometimes when you have a creative block, it's a good idea to try different layouts from books, catalogues and magazines. I loved how this turned out! I used SU paper, the SU scalloped paper punch, an SU stamp set, and a ribbon I found at a scrapbook store about a year ago.

What do you think?
