Let's Monkey Around



Is this sweetie just a knock the shoes off your feet image!  His hands form a heart so I placed a heart button there.  He's colored with copics and a bit of fussy cutting and pop dotting make him stand out.

Now for the background.  I was reminiscing about some of the things we used to use in our crafts like pop top tabs, paint chips, etc.  I have a couple of those long books of paint chips just begging to be made up.  I cut a similar size strip and attached to a 6x6 background and flipped it over and added adhesive on the back and attached to the cs front.  A pretty piece of ribbon with lots of 1s kind of lends a bit of surprise to the card.

This fella is going to be 11 on Monday - he's our grandson from Waunakee!  And I know he'll adore it with some cash in it too.  Try something new or old, make a card using Squigglefly stamps - either free or purchased.  Don't forget you earn points everytime you buy stamps from Squigglefly and better yet, there is 15% discount on all stamps thruout the month of March.  Just use the code:  spring15.

Linda, I love the creative way you used the paint chips. It really makes a cool background!

I know it's hard to create a card for an 11-yr old boy and your card is just the cutest thing. Your paint chip idea is boss (is that still acceptable to say?). So cute!
