I was surprised when I just peeked out the window and it was snowing. Its the little bitty snow not the fabulous big fat fluffy flake snow. Still I thought we were just getting rain today.
Two challenges for this card - Freshly Made Sketches and Seize the Birthday with topping of Make Us Laugh.
On to my card. I pulled out an older stamp set from Clearly Besotted - Cheeky Monkey. After stamping, and extending the vine, I added the monkeys, and colored all with copics. I then added a very soft wash of green inking over the interior of the card panel just to give it a bit more of a jungle feel. I added the sentiment and then adhered it to the card base. It is going to go to another of my BIL's. I am trying very hard to get all my birthday cards for the year made by mid summer.
I have a perfectly sized box from Target that has a lid and holds the cards in the landscape positon inside envelopes. For the birthday section I have dividers for the quarters of the year and then the cards are in date order and a post it note separates the future months. I address them, but leave the stamp off so I can write the birthdate so I'll remember to mail them timely. I put a "Celebrate"stamp on the cards just prior to mailing. I am in this box almost everyday so its rare that I miss a birthday.
Thanks for stopping by.
