Inkspirations Meets Paper Players

I was very intrigued by PP64 's challenge, Clean & Simple along with an Animal or Plant ~ so I rose to the challenge and included all the above ~ Clean & Simple (which I found very difficult) a little monkey, cut using my Cricut and an ivy running along the edge of my sketch...oh and speaking of sketch, this came from INKsirations 4U along with the color challenge! Sort of One Stop Shopping! I hope you like what I created.

A very dear friend just gave birth to her second child and I really wanted to create a personalized book for Eli ~ he is her little monkey and so this became my starting place ~ here is a picture of my gift for Eli!

and then my matching card to go along with Eli's gift ~ I did flip the sketch onto it's side ~ 

My little Chocolate Chip Monkey was very hard to photograph, he really does have a face!

Sorry for the quick post...been really busy with helping out our aging parents and I'm exhausted, but so excited that I had some time to create and post to my blog ~ thanks so much for stopping by today ~ have a wonderful day, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask ~ I'd love to chat with you!

If you live in Winnipeg or the vicinity and would like to host a party I would love to come and stamp with you and your friends!! Or, if space is an issue, come here and create with me at one of my many clubs or classes! Drop me a line for further info! I'd love to meet you! Enjoy your day!
