I have 2 cards to share with you today, first up is Sock Monkey Surprise by Kimberly. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am about this particular stamp set with coordinating dies. My good friend Kimberly Wiener from Wienerhoneymooners designed this set, Sock Monkey Surprise!
I had so much fun making this card! The girl sock monkey is dragging the boy sock monkey to the craft store...haha. He's still hanging onto his cup of coffee! This stamp set is chock full of accessories...I managed to add the bow, the mug and the balloon. Gotta love the coordinating dies for the Sock Monkey Surprise set. The clouds are from the new Silver Linings die set, more on that one in a smidge! All the patterned paper is from My Favorite Things - Fun & Frolic.
Yay for Kimberly! I couldn't be more thrilled for her!
Next up I'm featuring the Silver Linings by Julie!
This die set is amazing...so many possibilities! I used the clouds with Ranger Watercolor paper and Ken Oliver Color Burst in UltraMarine Blue. Love that sunburst...so fun! I also used the fun Stay Salty stamps + dies...the sentiment, the sailboat and do you see the clear embossed waves under the sailboat?
The complete release can be found HERE.
That's it for me...I can't wait to hop and see how everyone was inspired with this release! Now hippety hop over to my bloggie buddie, Alice Wertz!

"The girl sock monkey is dragging the boy sock monkey to the craft store...haha." Isn't it the story of our lives?... It's just that in this case the boy sock monkey looks happy... maybe because he's taking his cup to the craft store :D.
Thank you for the chance to win!
