Monkey Giggles

I haven't posted in a few days as I have been tearing up my house while hubby is in China/Korea. I am not getting very far. I have a lot of bruises , scratches, broken nails and a screwed up back tho. So at least I can show some work I did. I just did the work on me I guess.

I have not been stamping either. Here it is 3 AM and I need to go to bed but wanted to post a card I made on my trip to my son's wedding in April. If I had not been able to color images in the car, I would have gone nuts. It was my way of tuning out the Beach Boys for 750 miles and the same XM 50's radio over and over and over. I forgot my Ipod, so had to distract myself somehow.

So this card is from an idea at a class at Jane's -I am sure it was a Laurie design. The stamped images are from Great Impressions . The red layer is stamped in VersaMark and embossed in clear detail. I just pop dotted the white image layer on the dark blue after distress inking the edges and adding the off centered brads. The striped paper was layered on top of the diamonds and I actually didn't cuss doing this bow on the ribbon. Coloring was done with Prismacolors and Gamsol and of course, the obligatory Stickles on the tassels of the hat and a hint on the packages.


  1. Jan . . . these little monkeys are adorable!! I can't believe you could color that good in the car. Very nice card. I love your bright fun colors.

  2. What a cute and wonderful card, I am in awe of your coloring in a moving vehicle.


Thank you for stopping by and sitting a spell with me and mine. I hope you take away a smile!
