Isn't this little guy cute? He was stamped for this weeks CLEARLY INSPIRED CHALLENGE over at LORI'S BLOG. We were to use brads somehow on our card. Even if you don't own any CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS, why don't you play along.....there are always prizes to be won.

I used my Build A Brad as my little monkey's thought bubble! His little brain is on **LOVE**.
This little note will probably find its way into my hubby's lunch.

I used my largest square scalloped Nestability to make my card base from Chocolate Chip Cardstock. I then used Real Red and my nesties to create the next panel.

I was going for a more clean and simple card for this one. I stamped the leaves from the same set 'Monkey Madness' on the background. This was the very first stamp set I bought from Clear Dollar Stamps.....a very long time ago. I would have never dreamed I would be on their Design Team one day.!.!.!

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps ~ Monkey Madness
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Very Vanilla
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Close To Cocoa
Accessories: Square Nesties, Build a Brad, Sponging, SU Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, Dimensionals

Thanks for looking! Hope you get a chance to play along with us this week!
