This is post #2 for today, scroll down for my Fairy Fun Friday DT card
HHmmmmmmmmm.............how do I feel today? Well as per my prev. post, I am still sleeping (working nights) and will arise around 5 pm for supper, so I guess I'm tired.
How else am I feeling? I'm a bit melancholy as I am sad to say this is my last post for the JUST WORDZ inspiration DT. It has been a great ride and I have thouroughly enjoyed working with Kim's JUSTWORDZ Everyday stamps. They are so unique and versatile....I only wish I had the time to continue on with Kim over the next 4 months. Sadly I will not be able to as I now have 2 kids in gymnastics & 1 of those kids is also in drama club, kids in the kitchen & Destination Imagination; which means ALOT of afterschool pickups for ol momma dear! LOL
Let's not dwell on the future, though. Let me tell you about today's post. This week we are concentrating on SENTIMENTS FOR RELATIVES. I have opted to make a card for my son for when he starts kindergarten next year. That's how I envisioned this card coming together. It all started with the Saturated Canary Digi Smitty Schoolboy A Ragamuffin whom I instantly fell in love with.
He's my son.
Yup, that's him.
Then came the amazing sketch at the Pink INK Sketch Challenge & the rest is history! LOL
I HAD to use this paper from (paper pack escapes me now) that has the little monkeys on it, cuz my kids are 'my monkeys'...........when I haven't seen them for a whole day or even first thing in the morning, the first thing I say to them is "how are my monkeys today?" I've even caught my middle boy saying it to his younger brother.
I kinda made a sign with my sentiment out of my Tim Holtz grungeboard pieces. I painted them with my crackle paint & hinged it up with jute twine. The postage stamp from Whimsy says it all!
The pics below are some of the finer details.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope I've inspired you to get that monkey off your back & onto some paper!
