Birthday Monkey Business!



I lost track of time & last night realized I hadn't yet made a card for Andrea's Monkey Business challenge - and the linky closes in 11 hours. I almost had time to spare, not sure what I was hurrying for...anyway...

Supplies: Bugaboo monkey & cake digi; Bic Markers; Liquid Applique; Sakura Stardust gel pen; Cuttlebug birthday embossing folder; classic small circle Nesties


It's been ages since I've used Liquid Applique, and it was just as fun as it always is :)

I just joined the 21st century & got a cell phone - I am SO EXCITED to sit here like a dork texting away :) For all that I am good with fiddly bits of paper, I am not so good at typing on a tiny touch screen. I think I will quickly become a lot more tolerant of such abominations as 'u' instead of 'you.' And who decided that commas and apostrophes are less common than periods? Sigh. I'll get there.

xoxo,
Jessi

What a cute card! Congrats on your first cell phone! I still can't text worth a flip on mine, but my
DD, who is 9, uses her thumbs so fast it's mind-blowing! I think it's a generational thing. Have fun with it!
