Birthday Fun!


Do you know my friend Kimberly? She just released her first stamp set with Essentials by Ellen and it's so adorable! It's called Sock Monkey Surprise and it has this cute monkey and all sorts of fun 'stuff' (OMG, the banana!) for him and some great sentiments, too!

Once it got here, I sat down right away to have some fun with it. I die cut and coloured a bunch of the monkeys and then played around until I came up with this fun birthday card.

I also used Essentials by Ellen's Up The Happy.

I'm linking up to the current Seize the Birthday Challenge. and Darnell's latest NBUS challenge!

I've been pretty much out of the loop, and hadn't seen this set before! How adorable!! Love how you've got them floating among the clouds and one hanging on to the other. Great coloring too! Very sweet card. Congrats to Struan too. Pilot's license...wow!!! Very, very cool. Bev
