Monkey See, Monkey Do…

Yesterday was a lazy day for me because I was exhausted after our NYC trip.  In my list of tips I forgot to mention that you should be prepared to walk a lot if you ever visit NYC.  We did soooooooo much walking.  I found out I had muscles I never knew existed, lol. 

Before I went away we celebrated my nephew’s birthday.  Here is the card I made for him…

I am disappointed that I used copics to frame the window with but I was in a hurry to get it done so I grabbed the first thing I saw … my copics.  In retrospect I would probably frame it with some cardstock or designer paper.   I am happy with the little monkey – a digital stamp by Bugaboo – which I colored with my copics.  I used a glitter pen on the balloon but next time I would use actual glitter since you can see the strokes of the pen.  Those strokes don’t show up as much in real life as they do for the camera, however.  Caption says “It’s your birthday … go bananas.”

This makes card #28 in the 100 cards in 100 days challenge.  I’m warning you in advance that I’m doubtful I will complete this challenge (which ends on September 18th for me….siggghhhhhh).
