HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Did you all stay up until midnight to ring in the New Year 2008? It was a nice, quiet New Year's Eve for us, with an early dinner and a movie...and then while DH watched football, I spent some time in my craft room watching Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve! I even got to see the eco-friendly ball drop! :)
This rockin' card was created especially for the sketch challenge on MJ Albright's blog, Beauty Lies Within. Her blog is fabulous, plus she's giving away blog candy, so you'll want to rock on over there and check it out! :) Sketch challenges are SO fun and just the creative spark I need at times. Thanks to MJ and to all the super bloggers who create these sketches for us to enjoy!
On to my rockin' monkey card... :) I hope you like it and that it makes you SMILE! Now, for some details... it's a 4-3/4" square with Stampin Up Chocolate Chip for the base. I've layered on designer paper from a K & Company stack... a double-sided paper and I've used both sides of it. When Hobby Lobby had their stamps half price, I picked up this rockin' rubber stamp by Stampendous ~ Changito Pair. The "you rock" sentiment is from a $1 acrylic Studio G set from Michaels. I stamped it with Versafine Vintage Sepia and embossed it with a detail clear embossing powder.
As Dick Clark said... "from the bottom of my heart, I wish you a happy, healthy New Year!
Smiles, Pam :)
