Jumpin' the Gun Again . . .

Here's a sneak peak at July's Stamp of the Month set, "Life's a Jungle." It's a cute set with monkeys, a hippo, lion, alligator, bird, and several coordinating sentiments.

The "bird" is a toucan, isn't it? I'm about as good at identifying birds as I am flowers. With thoughts that it is a toucan, I pulled up some Google Images to help me choose my marker colors. Google Images is a great source for photographs and images of just about everything under the sun. The card design explains itself. I added the white circles behind the Brads Brads to keep them from getting lost in the "jungle" background.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Topiary cardstock; Black and Topiary ink pads; Citrus Leaf, Holiday Red, Sunny Yellow, and Grey Wool markers; Life's a Jungle July SOTM and Nature Walk stamp sets; My Legacy Writer; Circle punch; Sunflower, Clover Meadow, and Holiday Red Bigger Brads.

I have a big weekend planned with a "to do" list that is longer than my leg. Although stamping is not on the list, we all know I have little self control, so I can imagine that there will be some. After all, girl has to do something to stay sane. For now, I'm going to go chip away on the list a little so that when I stamp, I won't feel guilty . . . Later!

Looks great! Love the leaves in the background too and the brads.

You're so funny and oh so creative!

Cute toucan. UPS delivered as we were leaving on Wednesday, so all I grabbed was one of the new cattys. I haven't yet looked at the SOTMs, but I hope to play today!
