Happy Happy Monkeys

Don't these guys look like they are having some fun?? I wish I could be floating with a balloon right now! I have a bunch of birthdays coming up, so I have got to get a move on some birthday cards. Below are the details for this card...

Stamps: Changito's love balloon - Stampendous, Birthday messages - Hero Arts
Paper: Georgia Pacific CS, Bazzill CS, MME wild asparagus designer paper
Ink: Palette Noir black, SU Basic Black, Versamagic Jumbo Java
Accessories: May arts ribbon, SU cord, brads, crystal effects on the balloon
Techniques: stitching, distressing

Image was colored with my favorite medium...prismacolor pencils and OMS. I used crystal effects on the balloon, and then could have kicked myself!! If you look closely, you will see that I used a SU marker to make a little design on the balloon, and then when using the crystal ran a little bit!! I swear I was sitting there watching it dry, thinking I totally ruined this card!

Now, I am going back to bed for a little nap. I have a crappy cold..that I can't seem to kick...and I'm sooo tired!! Talk to ya all later!!

:D Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my blog today! Yes, I figured since I went over a week without posting, I'd better catch up! :D I had my bf from college visit this last weekend so I was busy cleaning and getting ready last week. So, almost as soon as they left, I went in my craft rm and started in with some of those cute images :D Can't help myself, I'm on a roll! Lol. Also, my dd has been home sick from school yesterday and today, so no work for me! YEA!! That leaves lots of stamp time. Anyway, I really love that you visited and always leave me such sweet comments. You're awesome. Hope you have a terrific week and that you get those B-day cards caught up on!! :D
