A Tale of Two Monkeys….

It’s always interesting to me how you can give 2 people the exact same supplies and they create two uniquely different cards.  My friend, Margaret, needed a birthday card for her nephew so we each made a card using the same supplies.  We used the Big Top Birthday paper, the monkey from Fox & Friends, and images from Patterned Party.  I think her card is SO much nicer than mine, but both are really cute.  This is why it’s such a good idea to look at card creations on lots of websites.  Everyone has a different crafting style and it’s nice to get some different ideas for using the same items.  Happy Stamping!

Margaret’s card is so cute and I loved how she added the Itty Bitty Bits star to the circle with the stamps.  I also loved how she wrapped her designer paper all the way around the card.  That’s something I never would have considered!

I tried to make my money hang from the birthday greeting, but instead he just looks upside down.  lol  I do like the turquoise with the red.  It’s funny, I’ve had that Tempting Turquoise ink pad about 7 years and I can count on my fingers the number of times I’ve used it.  When I pulled it out it was still just as juicy as the day I bought it.  I’m such a “neutrals” kind of girl, but it was nice to step outside my comfort zone and use bright and fun colors.
