Monkeys, Monkeys Everywhere!

Joined a Splitcoast Monkey and Bear swap before I realized I didn't have any monkeys.  So, I had to do a little shopping - after purchasing a monkey punch, a monkey stamp set and a monkey image from Cricut, I was good to go. 

This was my first shot at "card candy", which is a collection of several coordinated stamped images and embellishments that can be used on cards, tags, gifts, etc.  I used my new stamp set from InkyAntics and some monkey-colored Copic markers.  Love how they turned out.

The second item I'm swapping is a Monkey Tag.  For this tag, I used my new monkey punch from McGill and a free downloaded palm tree image from Cricut Craft Room.  I like using patterned paper for my die cuts to add a little somethin' extra.

I think my favorite is the Monkey Spinner Card I made.  The monkey is a Cricut image from the Paisley cart.  Had to show you the spin.  What do you think?

Blingy Bridal Shower

This card was made for the daughter of a friend for her bridal shower. She can't possibly be old enough to be getting married, can she?  Love how the glitter looks on this dress. Real Swarovsky crystals, too.  Very elegant.
