WOW – I have missed you all!!
I have been gone on a week long Youth Girls Camp with my church! I was in the beautiful mountains of Utah – no cell service or internet and no distractions! It was really quite lovely!!
And for the week leading up to that camp I was crazy busy getting all the crafts and cutesy things ready for the girls!! I was in charge of the three crafts we did up there – I will be posting about them soon!
But with all that busyness I have not been to visit any of you and I have not posted anything on my blog!!
I am back now and I have been resting and trying to get some blog visits in – I will be to yours soon!!
I have made a card – A tropical birthday card!!
~ Tropical Happy Birthday, Monkey!! ~
This card was made using a Your Next Stamp set called Jungle Critters, Watercolor paper, my “Ziggy“s, A Versafine Black ink pad and clear embossing powder. The pineapple is from the Tropical Paradise set from Sunny Studio Stamps. I shaded with Creamy Caramel and Bashful Blue ink (both from SU!). Masking was definitely involved! Adding wiggly eyes to the monkey was like putting icing on a cake!
~I am very happily linking this card up to these challenges~
My card is most definitely Tropical!!
Definition: Flora is plant life; fauna refers to animals. The handiest way to remember flora and fauna is that “flora” sounds like flowers, which are part of the plant world, and fauna sounds like “fawn,” and fawns are part of the animal kingdom.
I used Flora – my coconut tree and Fauna – my monkey!
My monkey standing on the pineapple is definitely creating a scene!!
Thank you for coming by and checking in on my blog!!
I will be around to visit all of you as soon as I can!
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!
