CQC119 & Monkey Challenge 90


Hello peeps!  Another Tuesday, another ColourQ day!  Check out these colors that Arielle has gathered together for us:


My mind was going in all kinds of directions thinking about this challenge, but when I saw the a la Card Monkey challenge and sketch, I went a different way.  Here is the sketch:

Monkey90 New to You-001

First of all, that little critter just cracks me up!  But second, I liked the sketch and third, the challenge was to use some “new” stuff.  I have been playing with the new SU dies, as you can tell, so I decided to continue to play with them and add a set that I’ve had for a while but hadn’t played with yet, Hand Knit:


I used both Edgelits dies here, stamping the Going Gray panel with the Woodgrain background stamp.   My little lamb is stamped in Stazon and colored with markers.  I added some felt flowers die-cut from the Fun Flowers die and embellished each with a little French knot.  I belong to a knitting group (even though I don’t knit—I cross stitch!) and I am sure this will come in handy as someone is always needing a get-well or encouragement card!  Here’s a closer view:


The little tag is from Tiny tags—a perfect compliment to this knitting-themed card, don’t you think?  I hope you’ll play along with us this week with these mod colors---you can find all the details along with the other DT samples on the ColourQ blog!!!  Happy stamping!

Here’s my little cookie monster; we have learned “up” and “down”!!  (BTW, if it looks like she only wears one outfit….it’s just because it’s cold at Grammie’s house and we always have to wear our sweater!!!):

I love the woodgrain with the edgelit! And that Tiny Tag stamp is PERFECT with the lamb/knitting sentiment. Thanks for taking part in our A La Card Monkey challenge!
