another monster smooch

my name should be 'by the seat of my pants sam', because sometimes that's what i feel like! ha ha! this morning i had just woken up, and this idea for a card for the paper smooches 'guest designer' challenege hit me! and i thought, when am i going to get this done? the deadline is today, and who knows when i'll be able to get crafty...think think think. and then i decided to throw caution to the wind and make the card first thing in the morning...which meant i had a little son! so i set him up with his own stamps and ink and paper. and i was actually able to get enough crafty time in to make and finish the card! crazy, i know!
anyway, here's the card i made for paper smooches:

isn't it adorable! i am a huge fan of the colors! and i altered both monsters from the original stamp by changing the position of their arms. the monster on the left is offering his 'love' to the monster on the right, who's so excited her arms are in the air! :) ha ha!

the embossed sentiment is also paper smooches, and i was originally going to emboss it in red, but i did not like the way it looked. so white it is! :) i definately wanted to add more red though, enter the addition of the bakers twine! :) isn't the little bow cute?

anyway, have a great day, and who knows? maybe i'll even get more crafty time in!
but i wouldn't count on it! :)


  1. Such a fun card! I love all of the things you've done with this stamp set, and having gotten it myself just a couple of days ago I've gotten so much inspiration from you =)
