Hang in there!

Thought I'd put together a quick card using Julee's birthday sketch. Check out her exciting news too - !!

This sweet monkey scene from Mostly Animals has been stamped and hanging around on my desk for who knows how long...'bout time she ended up on a card. She is colored with Prismacolor pencils blended with OMS. When they were going out of business this was the stamp I absolutely had to have. I think her name is Annie...

I've been trying to restock my card box with birthday and encouragement cards to send to our co-workers in-country, so the 'hang in there' sentiment from The Angel Company was perfect. Love that set of small greetings.

The vines are done with the fern stamp from SU's Watercolor Minis set - many thanks to Kittie747 at SCS for helping so many of us to think outside the box when using that stamp!

I drew in the vine she is swinging on with a fine black pen.

Happy birthday Julee!
