"S" Fold Miki Birthday

Hi guys!

Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was very busy and went way too fast, as usual. I now have 28 quarts of the tomatoes from dh's garden, processed and in the freezer, ready for soup and chili this winter. Yum! We'll soon have corn, potatoes and peas ready, so I'm going to be an extremely busy woman very shortly!

My card today is an "S" fold done with HOTP patterned papers and the embellies are from Martha Stewart. The adorable little monkey, named Miki, is from Angela, one of our design team members at Paper Cutz Challenge. She has designed a line of digital stamps called Sewn Together, and you can go take a peek at her other darling little critters and purchase them for download here. I'm afraid my coloring doesn't do him justice. I'm not very good at coloring with markers...haven't had my Copic class yet. I used my Bic markers and he got a little darker than I wanted. The recipient won't care though. It's for one of my gs's who has a birthday in September, and he loves monkies. You can't tell from the photo, but I cut him out and mounted him on foam tape for dimension. All of Angela's critters are so cute. You can see how she's used them on her cards at Sew Many Cards. Go take a look!

Thanks for stopping in today and don't forget to enter your pink and green card, LO or craft project at Paper Cutz Challenge!

Thanks so much! I just fell in love with this little monkey. Until I take my Copic class next month, I'll color him with MCPT. I do much better at that!

What a neat card! Your grandson will love it! Fun!! You did a great job coloring and cutting. I hate cutting and using small items... fingers too fat I guess or I'm just uncoordinated... or both. :) Hugs and Smiles to you! Thanks for being such a wonderful friend! Janis
