Gorillas Just Wanna Have Fun!!!! ... and a WINNER!!!


Is that not the cutest sentiment??? I was channeling Cyndi Lauper and singing that song the whole time I was making this card!!! Heehee! It brought back many memories of the 80's for me!!! Aaaaah!!

Anyway, I'm really thrilled with the way this card turned out! It features some of the cutest images from High Hopes new release. I made the 6x6 card base from Going Gray textured cardstock and the patterned paper is Uptown by Stampin' Up. I stamped the Jungle Scene on Wausau bright white cardstock using Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink and coloured it in using a variety of Copic markers. I stamped Camilla Gorilla separately, coloured and shaded her and cut her out. I used Almost Amethyst and So Saffron cardstock for layering and added these luscious sheer blossoms and leaves by Creative Impressions and attached them with some glitter brads by Making Memories. Then I pop dotted Camilla onto the scenery and added the matching sentiment!!


So do you wanna know who won the stamps from my challenge last weekend???? Of course you do. Well, before school this morning I had Emileigh pick a random number and the winner is.............MONIKA/BUZSY!!! Send me a quick email with your mailing address and I will get it out this weekend!

Are you excited about the new Sketch Challenge blog??? I know I am! And I have a secret to share....but you can't tell anyone!!! We've even got a sponsor who is donating an awesome prize for our first week's sketch!!!!! So be sure to check back here tomorrow for all the crafty deets!!!

I'm off to work again this afternoon, but I've got a long weekend off starting tomorrow!! yippeeeeeeee!!

I for one am so into this sketch blog b/c I honestly love to have a sketch that I can use over and over- and it looks different (is that lazy of me or what?) So I am waiting for that site girl! Have a good day at work.

Kimmie, this is such an adorable card and the sentiment is very funny...I so remember Cindy Lauper and that video...hi-larious!
Your photos ROCK, by the way! It's so great to see all the detail but into your colouring and the card, the close up it fantastic! Did you set up a little photo studio in your stamp studio? Now, you HAVE to e-mail me and tell me how you take your photos and how you get such great lighting etc. etc. I struggle with getting a good pic of my cards!
Thanks,
Tara
