Just Swingin' By To Say Hello!

Hi there!  Today I'm sharing a card that I am sending to Madison from Funky Cards for her I Feel the Love Project.  This month she is collecting cards for a sweet little girl named Olivia!  You can learn more about her story HERE.  For this card I pulled out my favorite cartridge, Create a Critter.  I cut out the monkey and since it's for a girl I gave her a bow and some little bling earrings!  I am going to enter this into the Cardz TV and Simon Says Stamp challenges which are both to use an animal on your project.  Thanks for swingin' by and have a great day!  :)

Materials Used:
  • Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge (Monkey and Vine)
  • Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge (Base and Mats)
  • Milled Lavender Distress Ink
  • Whimsical Designs With Love Stamp Set (Inside)
  • Hampton Art Sentiment Stamp (Outside)
  • Bling and Twine
  • White Gel Pen
  • Googly Eyes
