I had to make some "Thank you" cards for all the presents that my little guy received for his 1st birthday and since he is such a little monkey himself, I thought the monkey from C.C. Designs Monkey Love would be perfect! I also needed to make these cards easy, so I would actually finish them and send them out in a reasonable amount of time...a month is reasonable, right?!?!? :o)
Pretty simple stuff here: he is stamped with Palette Noir on PTI Stamper's Select White, colored with Copics and matted on More Mustard and Really Rust. Such perfect circles can only be made with the wonderful Nestabilities - I got mine on line from a place called Cut at Home. Somewhere near the top right of your screen, you should see a 40% VIP coupon. Click on that, sign up and a coupon code will appear in your email. Once a month, these coupons are sent out and you can use them to get the entire set of a shape of Nesties for less than $60 including shipping! It's quite the deal! And if you're like me, you have to have all the latest and greatest all at once - there is no budgeting, waiting, holding yourself back ;o) (insert sheepish grin).
K - back to the card...base is Chocolate Chip 4.25 square, DP is SU! Autumn Vines (I thought it looked a bit like paw prints), the blue strip is retired SU! Buckaroo Blue. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, I just masked out the 'I love you' and hand scribbled Thanks. Cuz this is my little monkey saying Thanks this much with his arms spread wide! (you can chuckle, I am a nerd and I know it!) :o)
Hope you all are having a fantastic day! Thanks for stopping by!! lyss
