kids birthday

April is the kick-off for children birthdays in my circle of friend, which means it's given me plenty of time making kid cards. somewhat difficult since i don't have that many stamps geared towards younger ones, so it may be time start looking into some. any suggestions of favorites for little boys? yes, unfortunately only one of my girlfriends has a daughter which means i can stock up on elzybells!

with that, this card was for Sophia, she turned 3 yesterday.

i chose this particular card for wyatt because his mom sent out invites stating "their little monkey was turning 1!" I'm a tad bummed about the eyes, i had meant to buy those wiggle ones but never got around to it and then just had to use my signo pen to make little white dots. i must add those eyes to my shopping list next time I'm at the store.

a few notes on this cards because i don't think the picture shows this: the 1 was die cut from the cuttle bug then colored with Marvy Wet Looks embossing markers. as a precautionary measure i did go over the 1 once more with the Versa-Mark pen and then embossed. also, the branch as well as the monkey are popped up with dimensionals.
