Once again it is Monday, time to show some love to your old supplies. I wanted to make a boy card today so I found a 6 x 6 pad from Echo Park - A Boy's Life. It has a date of 2011 on it.
The first card is for a little boy in my hometown who is battling cancer. I am trying to send him a card every month. My monkey stamps are guaranteed smile makers. Thank you Stampendous for your great monkey stamps. I used a sketch from Just Add Ink.
Here is my take on the sketch. I did add a half circle in the upper left corner - I thought I needed a little red to balance off the card.The banner and flag were cut with my Silhouette.
Since I had another monkey stamped and colored, I wanted to make a card for my Operation Write Home Box. I used the challenge from the Paper Players - Clean and Simple with Washi Tape.
I put my washi tape on a piece of white card stock. I then embossed the cardstock so I know that washi tape will stay stuck on the card. I added a Paper Smooches sentiment. I covered the sentiment mat with the red washi tape so it would match. I know that some child will love getting this card from their parent who is serving overseas.
Remember to show some love to your old paper and supplies. They still make great cards.
