My tongue is filling up my mouth, I think my hair is falling out!

Sorry I'm on a Shel Silverstein kick and switched over to poetry on ya. I'll try not to let it happen again! *wink*

I'm trying the whole Blogger auto-publish thing...we'll see if it works!

So, I've been monkeying. Yes, I mean I've been playing with my CC Designs Monkey Love stamps! These guys are just too cute. I finally got some time to sit down and do Amy's sketch challenges, and they were sooo fun!! To play along you can check out her post here. This is my card for this week's sketch challenge.

I stamped the little monkey guy in Palette Hybrid Noir on Kraft cardstock. Palette ink is my #1 choice for Prismacolor pencils & Odorless mineral spirits. This time I decided to just use the pencils and not blend them. I love love love the way that the lighter colors look on the kraft paper.

Here's two more cards, one using last week's sketch and one simple design just out of my brain. I know, I got stuck on that Tres Jolie paper...sorry! I love that stuff.
Hope you like these!! I had a blast playing with them. I hope you have a fantastic Friday!!
