As I was perusing blogs yesterday looking for inspiration for a birthday card for my niece, I happened upon A La Card Monkey - a weekly challenge blog that I had not seen before, and that I really liked The sketch images on this blog are very clever. They look more like a card than a raw sketch, and all have an image of an animal on them. I love that. Here's this week's sketch:
Is that adorable, or what????? This week's challenge - Break out the new stuff for Monkey Challenge #90: New to You is to use the sketch AND something new from your stash - either something you got recently, or something that you have had, but not used before.
The card that I made is for my niece, Molly, who turned 17 on Monday. She is a driver now (yikes!) and now, so I wanted to use a car theme. The new things I used were from PTI's Enjoy the Ride. Though I have used the VW car outline from the set before, I have not used the solid VW, the licence plate sentiment, or the happy birthday sentiment. I am pleased with this creation for my special girl.
If you haven't, check out the A La Card Monkey challenge blog. There is some beautiful work there from the DT and the participants. I know I will go there frequently.
I appreciate your taking the time to stop in today. Have a lovely one!
