Some of my projects ...

Please be patient with my as I try to get this blog exactly how I would like it to look.
I am still waiting for the best header and color combination I can make/find.
Things will likely be changed up a bit in this process.

Birthday Monkey Shutter Card

I created this card last week for my mom's birthday. I couldn't post it until after I was sure she had gotten it. Sometimes she checks in on my blog and I didn't want her seeing it before she got it.

The images are from Dustin Pike (of course) and are colored with Prismacolors and OMS (of course). I've been wanting to use these adorable monkeys for quite some time and this card seemed perfect for them! I put Stickles on the sprinkles and Crystal Accents on the cherry. The cardstock and pattern paper is from DCWV and My Mind's Eye.

I followed the instructions found here for the shutter card.

Thanks for looking! Let me know what you think!

Great job! I noticed that this was done several years ago and I am getting ready to make a 1st birthday and wanted to use these images. I checked the website, Doodle Dragon Studios, but the only image out of the three that I could see was the first image, with the monkey & cupcake uneaten. DO you know if the other 2 are still available?

thank you!
