I have a couple of projects I can't wait to share with you, first up is the adorable, Chunky Monkey:



My card was inspired by the current Mix it Up Challenge:


If you know me, you know that I need to squeak in a coffee themed project:


I had to ink up the Stay Strong set, oh my, that one makes me smile!  It's been teamed up with the It's a Carnival Pattern Paper Collection and of course, the Coffee To Go Cup SugarCuts.  In keeping with a birthday theme, I designed an appropriate envelope:


The envelope has been stamped with the HB2U set.  

This card was inspired by the Coffee Loving Cardmakers - Sip & Share sketch:

  8. Normally, I'm not a fan of monkeys...but this little cutie is definitely an exception! That's a sweet banner he's hanging from, and I love! the greens you've used for this darling card! Someone is going to be delighted to get this for their birthday! But that 'strongman' card...Oh my gosh! I almost spit my coffee out when I saw that! If anyone asks me to show an example of a brilliant card, I'm sending them here. What a great, clever, awesome idea, and it doesn't lack 'fun' either! And polka dots... I'm in love with this! Two fabulous card, my friend. Really and truly. : ) Bev
