Jungle in the Mail

good morning!
Gorgeous day on tap here in New England. Warm, sunny, perfect.
going to spend it at a graduation party
in Long Island with
family and friends that i love.

it seems to be a month full of babies and birthdays,and this is a card i made for my brother-in-law
that got lost in the mail! (not my brother-in-law, the card..)

so i thought i would post it ,and eventually i will remake it
and hand deliver it.
I used this wonderful jungle paper that came on a tablet
of assorted papers that was given to me YEARS ago. cool huh?
the little jungle man is colored with gamasol and prisma pencils.
Have a great Day!
enjoy the sun, each other and your stamps!

in my effort to keep up with the baby "boom" among friends and family,
i have been busy making baby cards. thank God for labor, it
gives me time to get the cards done.

i recently went to walmart to purchase fabric softner,and
wandered over to the crafts aisle. there i found this cute
little monkey die for the CuttleKids, but worked
fine in my cuttlebug.
so one of the girls who is a new "mommy" has
a monkey theme for the nursery. i kept the card
simple ( the paper has a little sparkle)
and the monkey was the center.
simple, but to the point!
paper : Su apricot, DCWV nursery,baby boy, blue
Palette noir ink
cuttle bug monkey die
Su : Warm Words
My Favorite Things: Shower time

good morning ~

i am attempting my hand in the blog seems to be the year of the "baby boy"
so my first post is of a card i made for one
of my daughters friends.

this layout style card is one i learned
so many talented people out there to inspire and force you out of the box!
this blog is mainly for me to try my hand at different styles, techniques etc...
they say throughout your life to try new things ~ this is one for me.
i am VERY new to this, so please be patient! (thanks)
