This Hug's for You

Some days I pre-post my ramblings, but today, I'm actually writing this at 5am! Yuck. I can't sleep. So what better to do than get up and try to get something done, right!?

Anywho, I kind of have an affinity for monkey images, since that's what I affectionately call Wyatt a lot of the time. (I mean really - he's a three yr old boy. There's MANY similarities!) However, I was holding out with this set from C.C. Designs because I feel like I've GOT to draw the line SOMEWHERE!

Well, evidently this wasn't the place to draw it, because as soon as I saw the new set with the monkey hanging from the balloon, I was hooked!!! I immediately placed my order for both of those sets, and one penguin set. I'm weak, I say. Weak.

But COME ON! How cute is that image?! It wasn't my fault, really...

So, back to the card. I had this negative space square of paper from a scallop circle that I die/punched out. I was about to throw it away, and then I thought that it would make a cute window. I stamped and colored with Copics the little monkey on white CS, then trimmed to fit just inside the square. Then I elevated the pink layer with Dimensionals.

Paper is Crate Paper's Blue Hill line, flower is Maya Road, and ribbon is from PTI. I also threw on a few Dew Drops to bring out more of the darker pink.

Well, that's about it! Tomorrow should bring a PTI card, so I'll see you then!



  1. Too cute, Kirsten! I call my little guy 'Monkey,' too. One of these days, we need to get our monkeys together! : )
