Sock It To You!

I was asked to come up with a little craft for kids to put together. (Thanks Carolyn!) That's how this sock monkey was born! I had a little extra paper left over and these are the cards I made.

Once I find a suitable sentiment, I'll tuck it in there somewhere.

I don't have the sock monkey stamp set, but I sure would like to put a banana on this one with the Island Oasis DSP. I used the balloons from the Cupcake set and shined them up with some clear embossing powder. I will likely put a chipboard number below the balloons for the recipient when I know who I want to give it to.

Can you picture more ideas to create with this monkey?! I never gave sock monkeys a second thought until I played with these and now have a liking for the little monkeys! All punches, papers and embellishment's are Stampin' Up!

Co-ordinating cards for desk top organizer

All four cards are made with the same layout from Mojo Monday sketch challenge #127 from Feb. 22/10. It's a great place to get sketch ideas. Take a moment to check them out. All paper products are from Stampin' Up! The only non Stampin' Up! products are the fibres; chord and medallion.

Here I go! First post - Desk Top Organizer

For my first post I chose a 3D project that holds 4 cards and co-ordinating gift items. It could be used for just about anything ie: baby products/cards. I made this and four co-ordinating cards for a display table I had at a scrapbooking convention here in Red Lake at the end of April.
