http://oddsandsoxlets.co.uk/ that was at one time free. I was lucky enough to find it using the Free Digital Stamps blog...gotta love all the wonderful work they do! One of my baby sisters loves sock monkeys so I am saving it for her birthday in August. As I was looking through my paper stash I ran across one sheet of monkey heads. I fussy cut them all out to avoid adding to my huge scrap pile ;) . Created the sentiment using my computer...I "heart" circle sentments, not sure why... I did pop the bottom part of the face to step it up a bit. There will be a number of these in the next OWH box. I usually make one card at a time...hence all the scraps...trying to quit that and make more multiples.
Speaking of boxes...mine went postal earlier this week for the card challenges.

I almost did not use it for this challenge because she is a little wider than the sketch dimensions. When I realized that she matched the paper that I had started with as my inspiration, I knew it was serendipity (one of my most favorite words...right next to enthralled). Do you have any favorite words?

I was so pumped after seeing Dixie's samples that I decided to make the chair card (even though this one does not technically have wings). I had saved this image that I found using the Free Digital Stamps blog and it was shared by http://janesdoodles.blogspot.com. If you really want to make great "guy" card the papers by Huckleberry Pond can be found in a 6x6 pad and I just love it! I printed a couple chairs, so I could pop the cushion and the pillow. This card will be giving to my baby bro tomorrow...but more will be on the way for OWH.
My second card was made by scraps back when I was trying to get some of them used up. I just love that sentiment sticker...I think it is Bo Bunny.

When I saw this sketch, I knew that I would break out my postage stamp stickers that I look at every once in a while, but have never used. They are 1.5" tall so I had to tweak all the measurements on both cards. I started this post with only one card...but I decided to go back and make a second (the butterflies). You see, originally I could not decide which set of stickers to use, so why not use both? Now I just need to wait for Mr Linky.

We need 50 cards linked up to get a donation to pay for shipping 2 boxes. May's challenge was met just in the nick of time...I hope we meet the goal much earlier this month.
I promised myself that I would break out some new papers that I recently bought for patriotic cards. My reward for working making the scrap pile smaller. Uber yummy!!! The image is from Free Vintage Digital Stamps and can be found here: http://freevintagedigistamps.blogspot.com/2012/05/free-vintage-images-red-white-and-blue.html. I did crop it some to work better with the sketch. The white border is a sticker that I thought would add a little something. Enjoy your day!
