Monkey Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone!  How has your week been going?  Seems like ours has just flown by.  We went shopping for school supplies the other day so it's nice to not have to worry about that if the baby happened to come early.  I'm now a month away from my due date and everything is going well.  It's hard to believe we'll be meeting our new little one in a month!  The kids start school about a week before my due date so things may be hectic the beginning of September! :)

Today, I thought I would share this birthday card I made with an old stamp from Stampavie from illustrator Rachelle Anne Miller.  It's a really old release and hard to find.  Sorry!  I'm not even sure what the name of the image is so I can't help with finding it.  I mentioned earlier that I wanted to use some stamps that I didn't have time to use when I was on a few design teams so that includes stamps that might not be readily available anymore. 

I colored the image with copic markers (listed below) and then masked the image so I could spray the background and floor. 

The great sentiment is from Catslife Press.  I always love her sentiments and have always had great customer service.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
