Birthday card for Lisa
Well, I figured I had better make a card to go with Lisa's gift... I awoke this morning with the image of pink monkeys random stamped on paper with a pink barrel, like the Barrel of Monkeys game I had as a child, only mine was red. This little monkey stamp is from It's A Zoo and it totally reminds me of the little monkeys from that game. Pairing the monkey image with the sentiment from Life's A Jungle got me a pretty cute card, albeit a very busy one! I think she's gonna like the card, but she'll probably wonder about the sentiment. She's a rather serious little girl, really an old soul, with a wickedly creative side. I'm totally amazed at her drawings and art she produces.
I saw a CD envelope on Jeanette Lynton's blog which was created by Jody Gustafson, another CTMH Consultant. It made me want to try one for myself, although mine is fairly simple. The card is just soooo busy, that the envelope needed to be the calm before the storm! lol
