Welcome! Monkeys monkeys and more monkeys

With limited resources ( with out my corner for the next 2 mo.)
I was able to pull off a few more cards!
I hope you enjoy
I love paper and many times I let the paper be the focal point of the card. With a lot of fussy cutting and some creativity it allows me to make some nice cards.
This card has 2 tags one for each child when our hero writes home.

 I like to add a little something extra to each card whether it is a tag, a special fold,
or even a keep sake charm.
This paper was genrously donated by my Stampin Up representative! Thank you P.W. 
Made from all cuttle bug products and sentiment from Stampendous.

                                             Entire card was made with various stamps and Bic markers
(sorry copic friends- i am a bic and sharpie user)
 Thanks for stopping by.

I Love to Organize

I have always said..."i do not know which i love more..making cards or
 organizing the stuff to make cards".

all of my scraps fit into 2 small bins that are 8x5
all scraps are then arranged by similiar size and then clipped together for easy view.

I have organized some scraps with backrounds. This helps me be creative and think of diffrent designs.

masculine card- fathers day

Finally got the measurements
for the middle world part it is 5in across-3 1/4 horizontal
cut across and layer the 2 sheets together and cut at the same time to match 1 3/4
does that make sense? The middle piece is 1/2 inch and the piece inside of this is 1/4 inch 
Hope you try it.

especially for Sandy

A tribute to Sandys Song
Stamp stamp here, stamp stamp there,
and a couple of tra la las,
That's how we mark our cards 'round here
In the merry old land of [OWHz]!

Tuck tuck here, tuck tuck there,
sorting themes as we go,
That's how we keep cards neat and clean
In the merry old land of [OWHz]!

Embelishments out of control
