Just a splash of color and some monkey business.

Happy Friday to you all! I hope you all had a great week. We are in the final countdown here to the end of the 08 school year. This next week is gonna be a busy one. We have a birthday (our 14 yo is turning 15), two graduations (our fifth grader and twelth grader) and our 28th wedding anniversary, all in one week! Do we know how to cram all our big occasions into a little bit of time or what? Whew! Kinda makes my head spin just thinking about it!

Enough blabbering about me and lets get on to what you really came here for. Stamping stuff! I have two cards to show you all for today. Both are challenge cards. The first one is for Sharon's blog challenge. (I just love her blog because her cards are always so elegant.) Make a simple black and white card and add just a touch of color. This card was super quick and easy, but still looks elegant. I knew immediately that the splash of color was gonna be yellow cause I wanted to use this pretty ribbon that I picked up a while back in Michael's dollar bin.

Recipe
Stamps: Sentiment (Inkadinkado) Ornate Floral Backgrounder (Judikins). Paper: White, Black. Inks: Black Pigment Ink. Accessories: Black EP, Cuttlebug & floral folder, Fiskars Border Punch, Ribbon, Brad, Silk flower, Small scallop punch.

The second card is for Taylor's cupcake challenge. She posts a fabulous layout every Friday and if you participate, you have a chance to be featured on her blog. What a great deal, huh? Have you seen her blog! Her stuff is amazing!


Recipe
Stamps: Changito Birthday (Stampendous) Sentiment (Studio G) Cupcakes (Inkadinkado). Paper: White, Chocolate, DP from My Minds Eye. Inks: Black Stazon, Chocolate Chip. Accessories: Markers, Ribbon, Buttons, Hemp, Stickles, White Gel Pen, Cuttlebug and Circles and Flowers Folder, Dimentionals, Sewing Machine.

I just couldn't resist using my little monkeys for this one. I just love those little guys!

That's all I have for now. I am still trying to figure out how to make a template for my bag box. I may just have to resort to a hand drawn one. I'm self taught on the computer and everything I do is by trial and error (lots of error *wink*).

As always, have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by! TTFN
