OCL Blog Hop Day!

Happy Friday!  And what a wonderful day it is!  Today is Our Craft Lounge's BLOG HOP!  So happy you could hop along with u:s!

You should have arrived here from Deb Felts' blog.  If not, go back to the beginning - at the OCL BLOG - and hop along!  You have a chance to WIN one of the FOUR BRAND NEW stamp sets that OCL is releasing!

Today I am showing you a card I made using the new stamp set Monkey Around.  I *LOVE* this set!  It is absolutely adorable!  Wanna see???



Isn't it CA-UTE?!?!  Now for my card:


 I love the paper I used!  It came from a Die Cuts with a View paper pack.  These monkeys hanging like this remind me of the monkeys in a barrel that I played with as a kid - and revisited when I had kids!


I used Coffee Bean Brown Sparkly Fluff on the girl monkey's belly.  It is so sparkly and soft - I swear I can't live without the stuff!!!  Yep - it's an addiction - and I'm NOT going to rehab!


For this button embellishment, I punched out a circle from the Die Cuts with a View patterned paper and glued a clear button to it.  I colored the banana and cut it out and adhered it to the button.  VOILA!


Well - this photo is turned on its side - but you get the picture.  I put ribbon through the button and tied a bow.  But for some reason, I didn't like how it looked with the bow on top.  I was looking at it and looking at it - and my husband said "why don't you turn it upside down?"  I thought - seriously?!  Bows are to be looked at, DUH!!!  Well - I turned it upside down and - WHAT????? - I liked it!!!  Who knew!!!

So - do you want a chance to win the new stamp sets OCL is releasing?  Well, hop along with us - to all of the blogs participating (go to the OCL Blog to start at the beginning).  Four random winners will each win one stamp set!  Winners will be announced on the OCL Blog on Monday, June 6th!

Now - it is time to hop on to JOY STAGG's Blog!

Have fun!

Heather, this card is so cute. Yes, it also reminds me of Monkey Barrel game. Hey, you have one observant husband. I like his suggestion. I don't know how you threaded that ribbon through the holes, whew. Love the monkeys. Have a great day.
