Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #25!

Good morning everyone! Yup! You get to see more circles today! I didn't realize that Taylor's sketch for this week had circles in it until after I made my Verve challenge card! I thought it was kind of neat! :D This was such a fun sketch to work with too! I am not a HUGE fan of my card but I didn't have time to make another one so I guess it will have to do. I watercolored the monkey and I just don't feel like he fits the rest of the card. I wanted him to look natural colored so I colored him brown but then I remembered that Nick has a RED sock monkey. Silly me! Haha. Oh well though, it's still cute! I finally got to use my new Old Olive ribbon and my new slit punch too! I put crystal effects on the hat and cupcake again and popped the cupcake up on dimensionals! I will eventually get around to showing you his other accessories but I had to use the cupcake for Taylor's CUPCAKE challenge! Haha! Anyway, make sure you head over to Taylor's blog so that you can participate in the challenge and see her AMAZING card! You should also check out this week's featured stamper as well! This week it is Donna Baker! She has a fantastic blog so make sure that you stop by!

Thanks so much for stopping by this morning! We have a house full of company so I am not sure I will get any stamp time in this weekend. :( I guess I will just have to sacrifice! Hehe. I may possibly be able to wake up early, before everyone else, so that I can find time to stamp. My only hope is that no one will have to stay in my stamp room due to lack of space! Have a great rest of the day ladies!
