Look what I found the other day at Target. I just had to get it for him. I went back yesterday and they have many other monkey themed things. I saw a piggy bank, cookie jar, lunch box.... I found another blue outfit for him at Kohl's that has a monkey hanging on the front and it comes with a bib that says: "My little monkey". And then yesterday I found the same one, but in pink, for his little friend Mia who has the same nickname.
I actually have more things to show you, but no time to write it all up. My husband comes home on Friday and I will have more time then. I want to give away some crochet flowers this week so be on a look out for that post. It is late and I need to go to bed. Alex is sleeping, but not for long. Doing all this by myself is totally exhausting.

This second card is made for SCS sketch challenge 169. Once again I used the papers from Sugared Collection by Basic Grey. I know, they don't look like they belong, but they are all in the set. The stamp, of course, is from Impression Obsession called Bloom Spray. I stamped it on watercolor paper. I colored it using SU ink pads and my blender pen. I just happen to have the colors to match the paper. After I was done coloring, I cut it out. The butterfly is from Butterfly Wishes clear stamp set and the sentiment from Mini Messages clear stamps set.
This little gift came from Emma's Paperie. I tried out for March guest designer and she sent me a little gift. Thank you Cindy. Her store is full of wonderful goodies and her blog is filled with beautiful ideas.

If you would like to play, make a card in shades of lavender, blue and green. Post a link in the comments section and I will come by and visit.
Here are two more cards I created (not for the challenge) with Impression Obsession stamps. I used SEI patterned paper and the collection came with a sticker sheet/labels. The flower is from Petite Flowers II clear stamp set. I used a scratch piece of paper to cover the bottom of the label to stamp the image "inside" the label. I used markers to color the image. Sentiment is from the Mini Messages set.
For the second card I used different flowers from the Petite Flowers set and colored them with markers, again. Just love those flowers. I love them because they are different and I can color them any color I want !
I think that is all for tonight. I have more cards to share with you, yes, I have been busy. I wish I had more time to post. Have a great day!

Have you seen the new issue of Paper Crafts April/May 2008? I have three cards published in there. I was at a bookstore last week and paged through the magazine and thought about getting it because I didn't renew my subscription in time and figured that I wouldn't get that issue. Couple of days later I get my two complementary magazines with my three cards. Wow, what a surprise. The next day my regular subscription arrived. Good thing I didn't buy that one. I will give the extras to my mom, she likes to make cards. I gave her a ton of stuff to take home with her. I wish she could have taken more. Too bad they have weight restrictions for luggage. Here is one of the cards in that issue. OK, just one more before I go. My little one is sleeping. I gave him a bath and fed him and he passed out. He usually doesn't go to sleep until 10 pm. I hope this doesn't mess up his wonderful sleeping schedule. This morning we both slept until 9:30. That was nice, especially for me.
I published my post before I was done, sorry. Anyway, here is one of two cards in Paper Crafts March 2008 issue.
I can't leave without showing you this adorable photo of Alex. We went for a walk yesterday and it was sunny and very bright. He is two months old and his first well check up is on Monday. I can't wait to find out how much he weighs. I think he is about 12 pounds or more. I can't believe this long post. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.
