Happy Monday all! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! We went to the peach festival in a neighboring town with my SIL and her husband, and we had a great time! We opted not to take the kids, but to make it an adult night out, and it was a lot of fun! Can you say peach margaritas!! Whoohoo, they were yummy! Yesterday I spent making some of my convention swaps and I am going to share one of them here today. I used a brand new set from Stampin' Up! called Sock Monkey - isn't he adorable! I think so, I just love this little guy and had so much fun playing with him!! I used some of the yummy new dp Bella Rose on this card and ended up doing some masking so it looks like he's holding a bouquet of bananas. I did not want to paper piece since I made 25 of these (and well, only have one pack of the new dp) so I colored my image in using my Stampin' Write markers then took my white gel pen and added the polka dots to simulate the paper! The scallops were made using my new scallop edge punch - oh, how I love that new punch!! I am pleased with how this came out, but they did take awhile as I made so many of them - here is a peak of the bunch I made sitting on my workbench:! Lots and lots of monkeys holding bananas - lol! But, they will make great swaps for Convention and I am glad I have managed to get some of these done!! I will share another one with you tomorrow but now I have to run to Weight Watchers and see how this week went! I was good, so I am hoping for there will be less of me - LOL! I will leave you with the recipe, then I am outta here! 'Till tomorrow, toodles!
