This is the second post for the day! I hope you are having a lucky day! Did you wear your green? No pinches right? Today’s card is a fun one using Hambo’s Monkey Irish – isn’t he soooo C-U-T-E! AND he is on sale for 50% off for today only! Go get him!

Hambo Monkey Irish

For today’s card I decided it was time to dust some supplies off and actually use them instead of hoard them for the “perfect time”! I used some Tim Holtz distress markers (that I just “had to have”) to create a water color background, I used a Papertrey ink stitch die on my sentiment along with some variegated twine, and my last bit of dusty supply was some gold glitter buttons for a little extra embellishment – So glad to have dipped into that stash, but boy is there still a LOT left to play with!
