Monkeyin' Around!!



Okay all the entries are in and votes are being tallied!! Just kiddin', there's no voting....but it sounded good. I can't believe all the amazing entries to the Kimmie's Kreation Celebration challenges!! Some people even completed ALL of the challenges!!! I'm glad that you enjoyed them! I will be looking them all over this evening and I will post the winner of each challenge sometime tomorrow!!

This is going to be a rather quick post as I'm off to work all day today.....boo. BUT, the thing that will be keeping me going all day is knowing that a new season of Big Brother begins tonight!!!! Yeeeeeehaaaaaaaaw!!! Does anyone else out there enjoy that show?? I can't wait to see what's in store for the new houseguests this year!!!



Yesterday I had the whole day off, so between dishes and laundry, I make a few cards! Gina K. Designs had a release party on Sunday night and there were trivia questions, challenges and prizes!!! And what do you know?? I won a FREE stamp set!!! Yippee!!! I'm so excited because I don't own any Gina stamps yet!! So yesterday I took the opportunity to enter three out of four of the challenges and these two cards were for one of the sketches. I love nice and simple designs because then you can either stick with the simple, or get creative and add to it!

For these cards I used an Autumn Leaves stamp set called Mindy's Zoo which is SO adorable!! I used two different monkeys on these cards and also my favourite punches by Marvy!! I used Daisy D's paper on one and retired SU paper on the other. Can anyone remember the name of this paper?? Is it Spring Showers or Spring Flowers or something like that?? Or am I way off??? Anyway they were fun and simple to make.

Hope you have a stampin' good day......I will try to, even though I won't be stampin'! :o(

cute cards, Kimmie! Congrats on winning a Gina K set! woohoo. I know what those days are like, not getting to stamp, but usually it's a 'choice' for me, I usually take Monday nights off but I couldn't last night because I had to work on MY Gina K challenges too. good luck

I just love winning things, don't you? And as for your cards gorgeous as usual. Do you ever make anything that doesn't look good? If you have, I've never seen it. PS, I left a little award on my BLog :)
