WINNER & Bananas

First off I would like to thank Erica for hosting such a great Cancer Blog Hop.  I think we've all been touched by some form of the disease and understand how it can destroy a person or even a pet.  I received 35 wonderful comments and I tried to get back to each of you that have blogs or e-mails.  SOO the random number generator chose:

This is such an encouraging card. Love it.

Terry, if you will e-mail me at tk_themom_smith at msn dot com with your mailing address, I will get your stamp set out to you right away. 

I actually created a real quick card last night while the guys made dinner.  I was flipping through the Sweethearts Cartridge and realized that this could work for three challenges. 

First is the CCCC #25 use the Sweetheart Cartridge.
Second is Simply Sunday challenge Food for thought at Getting Cricky. 

The card is 4.25" X 5.5".  I used CTMH paper and card stock.  The inset was embossed using cuttlebug (I have no idea what template I used.  I just grabbed one.)  The monkey was cut and 2.5" and the words were cut at 1.25 off the Sweethearts Cartridge.  The bananas are from the Preserves Cartridge cut at 1" and layered.  I outlined with chocolate ink. 

I wanted to put googly eyes on the monkey, but didn't want to dig for them so I thought stickles for the eyes would make it look like he was seeing stars.  I just put it on too early and then proceeded to stick my hand in it as I was gluing the rest of the stuff on. 

I put the bananas inside just to tie it all together. 

Have a great Tuesday and hope to see you back here soon.
