Five Little Monkeys....

My grandaughter, Elise, turns five years old tomorrow.  Here is the card I sent her.  I will confess I was in a hurry so would certainly change a few things.  My inspiration for this card came from Elise herself!  She loves to sing and dance and I can just hear her singing "10 little monkeys jumping on the bed, one fell down and broke his head!..."

Happy Birthday Elise!

Trick or Treat!

 Cute, huh?  And super easy!  The Tag a Bag makes a great treat bag!  The witch's hat (embossed with Black Stampin' Emboss Powder)is from Best of Halloween, the "trick or treat" is from Tags 4 You, Deco Label Collection Framelits outlined with the Black and Orange Stampin' Glitter, and the ghost is the Owl Builder Punch embossed with Iridescent Ice Stampin' Emboss Powder.

I am really loving the Magnificent Maple stamp from the Holiday Catalog!  There are several techniques that you can use which makes this stamp really versatile!  My mom's birthday is on Monday and Fall is her favorite time of year so it all just came together!

The leaves are embossed with Early Espresso and burnished with Always Artichoke, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze.  The Vanilla cardstock is embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and lightly sponged with Early Espresso ink.  The greeting is from Express Yourself Hostess set.
