KL Stampin N Scrappin's FIRST Blog Hop!!

Come hop with KL Stampin N Scrappin this Friday, July 31st for a fun word game and LOTS of chances to win, and lots of Sparkling Inspiration!!

I have 3 prizes to give away from KL Stampin N Scrappin store goodies and some wonderful items from my dear friend and fellow DT member, Carolyn, and I believe all of the other DT girls are giving away prizes on their own blogs as well.

Two of the gift sets will be given to "surprise commenters" from the Design Team's blogs, so be sure to stop by them ALL for a chance to win some GREAT stuff! There will be more details on the KL Stampin N Scrappin Design Team Blog!!

So, don't forget . . . you won't want to MISS THIS!!

Oh my gosh, when I saw these CUTE animals in the Magnolia pet collection, I was totally drawn to them. I just love their sad little puppy dog eyes, and this monkey looks all cute and fuzzy. I was really torn if I was just going to color and shade him with my prismas, color him with copics or use fun flock on him. I love fun flock but it is hard to get good coverage without taking away from your colors or shades. . . ahh, at last I just decided to color him with my prismacolor pencils and blend with gamsol, touched him up a bit with a Signo white gel pen to add more highlights and layered this little cutie on a pretty floral piece of Lemonade paper.

This little guy will be given to my dear hubby this Wednesday for a very special day, as he has been "monkeyin around with my heart" for the past 19 years. I do hope he loves this monkey as much as I loved creating him. I decorated the inside too but forgot to take a picture *sigh* sorry.

Card details: Monkey and vine stamps from the Magnolia pet collection, Lemonade paper, scalloped die cut from a Basic Grey Do Me a Favor kit (included in some special gifts coming soon), Birds and Swirls folder, old olive and chocolate chip cs, grapevine leaves and curls, pink brad from Lemonade collection, and hemp twine.
Thanks for stoppin by!!
