Final Mega Monkey Mania Saturday Sneak Peek

Is it Saturday already?  Really?  I truly am thinking these monkeys have been playing around in my brain's memory centres because this is getting ridiculous.  Three out of six Saturday sneak peeks with the Manchesters have been late for one reason or another.  So, I know those cheeky little monkeys are messing with me, they must be!

I hope your Saturday is going well and you haven't forgotten anything important!  It is LISA HERE with the FINAL Saturday sneak peek for Mega Monkey Mania.  So let's have a lookee, shall we...

Michael's Surgery is Today/You Rock Bestie


This is a scheduled post for today is the day  Michael is having surgery and I bet I will be doing  a little pacing and fiddling with my fingers, I will be on as soon as I can to let you all know how he did.

It turns out that Troy couldn't make the trip but Kelly (Terrifically Talented Theresa's mom, my bestie jumped at the suggestion) I am so blessed to have such awesome friends in my life. I thought it would be nice to have a card hanging around for that day when you want to tell your bestie she rocks so I got creative and made my own background out of Tim Holz Inks and stamps from Fresh Squeezed stamps. I had this chip board butterfly for some time now , I actually have lots of them and never know how to put them to use. I inked this butterfly with a medium and covered in white embossing powder, I then melted it using my heat gun, I always love watching the magical conversion.

 I guess you know this card is for Kelly for not hesitating in the least to make a 5 to 6 day tr…

Bit by the Bug Beginnings: Another Bug is Born

Welcome to...
Hello everyone LISA HERE with today's post!  There are just two images left in Mega Monkey Mania and today we reveal the final new release of the bunch.  Let me introduce you all to the complete Manchester bunch:
The Manchester Family   The Manchester Family will be available in the store for purchase as soon as Naomi gets back home and settled from her trip to Halifax and dealing with Michael's surgery.  The big day is tomorrow, so let's send her and Michael a little extra love and some positive thoughts, shall we!
For the last four weeks we have gone on a walk through sock monkey history from the very beginning to the present day in both the States and Canada.  It is amazing the popularity that this little guy has garnered.  Today we are going to see how this toy continues to be celebrated.

Given that Rockford Illinois was effectively the birth place of the traditional red heeled sock monkey, it only makes sense that they continue to honour this unique toy an…

Just because -Siloutte card

Hello!! I have this post Scheduled for I am a very busy bee this week getting the final touches done such as getting the ramp on the deck and picking plan B for hotels , packing lots of PJ's and such. Today I am showing you a siloutte card I made, I got a free kit from Paper Made Bakery with so many goodies , sadly they are not making anymore kits and this was a thankyou gift for being a loyal subscriber. I will miss them something fierce...does anyone know of any other kits I can subscribe to??  
I made a dozen or more little flowers with my wee wee flower punches and tediously glued them in I attached them to the bottom of her skirt and placed some on top of the banner, I also added 3d punched butterflies... they are so small you will have to enlarge the picture to see all the detail. I added liquid pearl to the center of each flower and inked around the butterflies with black distress ink from Tim Holtz. 

I added stickles from Tim Holtz to give more definition…
