I'm so excited.. Tomorrow my best friend Karen and I are going to the Scrapbook and Card Expo.. It's in another town about hour away.. I always like these.. (I really like the ones in Portland Oregon cause they are tax free to us Washington residence it's about 90 min. away) But this one is in Washington.. It's fun no matter what. We're going to do a card class. It's more of an artsy card class.. I like this idea. If they turn out I will post soon.. We always do the "makes and takes" and of course buy, buy, buy and get ideas. Always fun time and with a dear friend it's even better. We usually do lunch afterwards.
Ok on to todays post.
It's Free Friday at Catch the bug -- You can find the image in the image in the Bugaboo Store.. The image is BM topper
I wasn't sure how I wanted to do this card.. I made the line under the monkey a little longer and then used my brick stencil and added a small row of bricks. I used my cloud template for the background and colored the image with copics and used "0" copic on terry scrap to give the monkey some texture. I used white gel pen on the balloon and hat then I added Glossy Accents to the balloon. I heat embossed the My Favorite Things - Happy Birthday in black. I added the ribbon and Nuvo drops.. Fun Happy Birthday card.. The paper is Basic Grey.
For more ideas head over to the Catch the bug site and see the DT inspiration.
