"It's a ZOO!" ~ Clear Dollar Stamps Blog Hop! :)



Hi Everyone!


It is the 20th so it's time for another fabulous Clear Dollar Stamps blog hop!


If you came from Jerusha's adorable blog, you are in the right place.
If you just happened on to  my blog, head on back to our fearless leader, Lori's blog so you can start at the beginning. You don't want to miss out on commenting on all of the blogs for your chance to win one of two gift certificates for Clear Dollar Stamps. The winners will be drawn from the comments on two random DT'd blogs. ;)
This month's theme is "It's a Zoo!" and the girls have all picked out their favorite CDS zoo critters and made some amazing projects for your inspiration.
I used the "Monkey Business" digi stamp set that I illustrated, for my card.
I colored him with watercolors and popped his nose and feet for some added dimension.
The papers are Basic Grey's ~ Origins stack.
The wonderful trims are Black Leaves and a striped twill (that is temporarily out of stock) from Really Reasonable Ribbon.


You can download this digi set instantly for just $3.00! ;)

We sure hope you enjoy hopping along with us on our fun Zoo trip!
Your next "exhibit" stop is @ Nancy's fun blog.

Now...don't monkey around and forget to leave a comment before ya go! :)
Better chance of winning some sweet stuff! :)

Thanks for dropping by!
Big hugs,
True :D

Precious card and cute monkey! Great set of stamps. (I'm now follower of yours, too. Boy, it's crowded in here!) LOL Love the hop today. Great inspiration for a whole batch of kid's cards. Am going to be making several and will donate them to Operation Write Home so that they can be used by our deployed service people to write home to their kids! Thanks for the inspiration.
