For My Favorite Monkey

I made this card for Taylored Expressions' World Card Making Day Challenge, using Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 38.

Stamps: TE Beary Special
Paper: White, Cameo Coral, Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel DSP, Ski Slope DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral, Sage Shadow, Kraft
Accessories: Paper Piercer, Brown Ribbon
Techniques: Paper Piecing, Fauz Stitching

I'm so pumped to be going to my first Oilers game tonight. Well, not quite the first, but I haven't been to a game since the 2006-2007 season, so it'll be a great time. I used to go to 10-20 games a year when I worked at my old company and besides the people, that's the one thing I really do miss.
It's against the Dallas stars, but here's hoping there's some magic in the rink tonight....I haven't seen us beat Dallas in the dozen games I've watched the match up.
I gave this card to my favorite monkey yesterday and he loved it. Always my biggest fan. I can't wait to celebrate our third anniversary in Banff at the end of the month!

One final note - don't forget to enter for your chance at a $10 Digital-Ink Co gift certificate and a rubber stamp set...draw ends on Thursday!

Have a fabulous Tuesday. I'm off to freshen up on my First Aid training. Ugh....two days of training. Thank goodness I have something to look forward to tonight because today is going to be LONG.


  1. I love the stitching on the card...I can't tell if you sewed it or if it's drawn in! The paper piecing is great too. Have a fun night!

  2. oh, I love the polka dot paper and stitching...so fun! Where are you going in Banff for your anniversary? The Banff Springs hotel? That's where we spent our 2nd this summer (just one night). It's so gorgeous and romantic :) Have a fun day...hopefully it goes by quickly until you get to the game.
