Welcome, and good morning to ya! Are you like me... Feeling like today is Monday? I'm still not a fan of those Monday holidays, because it messes with my entire week. I know many of you enjoy those three day weekends, and I understand, but I will be a day behind for the rest of this week. Sheesh!! Like I need any help in feeling "behind"!! :-)
Have you seen anything as cute as this baby monkey stamp? Isn't she just adorable?? I made this card for the Peachy Keen Challenge #11, but I also made it for my friend, Crystal who just had a gorgeous baby girl, little Maggie about a week ago. New babies are so precious, and I'm looking forward to being a great aunt very soon. Babies, babies everywhere!! What a joy!!
This card was made with the Baby Monkey stamp from Peachy Keen stamps. I colored her up with my SU inks and an aquapainter/blender pen. The DP is from the retired Tea Party collection from SU. I used my circle, and petite scalloped circle Nesties for framing the image, and added embellishments with hand stitching, ribbon, a lace edge made with a Martha Stewart punch, and SU latte buttons. Of course, not many cards are complete for me without bling, so I opted to add rinestones to her little socks, and the top of the umbrella. The sentiment is from Sweet -n Sassy Stamps Baby Blessings stamp set.
I'm so happy to have this card finished. I've had a plan for it for quite a while, and I knew I wanted to use this oh, so cute stamp. When I saw the sketch for this challenge, I was thrilled with how well it worked into my plan. Not all cards come together this easily, but when they do, it's something to celebrate!! Have a happy day, and happy stamping! Please come back soon!
