Two Days In A Row!!

WooHoo!! I am posting to my Blog for the second day in a row. This is very exciting for me. I got to play again on the SCS daily challenge. Today is the featured stamper's challenge seen here. The featured stamper for this week is Shellapoo and she has a wonderful gallery and sounds like a wonderful person! Here is my version of one of her cards. She makes cards to give to children who are hospitalized, so I would like to send this to her to put in her stash. I finally got a chance to use some of my new stuff from my Stampin' Up! preorder. I just love this little monkey. I am sure this stamp set will get lots of use! I really like the way Shellapoo (Michelle) uses different embellishments on her cards like buttons, fibers, and flowers. I have a stash of buttons that I started collecting when I was a small girl. I started my own collection when I discovered my mom's with all her sewing stuff. She got me started and I have been adding to it ever since. I can't throw out an old, worn piece of clothing without snipping any buttons off first!! Does that sound strange to anyone? Well I thought this assortment of green and pink buttons were perfect for my card.
Here are the deets:
Stamps: SU Sock Monkey
Paper: SU whisper white, Bazzill Basics textured cs, DCWV dp
Ink: Black Stazon
Accessories: prismacolor pencils, oderless mineral spirits, blending stump, spiral punch, misc. buttons, pop dots
Thanks for stoppin' by and stop back again soon!!
