Year of the Monkey Birthday Cards... and 'the dogs go to the beach.'

I made 5 birthday cards (two of which are posted below) for a luncheon my mom was going to. They were celebrating birthdays for people born in "the year of the Monkey."

Using my Cricut (Create a Critter), Hero Arts Stamps, Memory Box die cut, and Copics/Liquid Pearls and a Lawn Fawn banner stamp, I created this card:

Here is the corresponding envelope (Hero Arts Birthday set)

This is the super cute Memory Box die cut that I got at my local stamp store (STAMP FEVER)


The boys went to the beach recently.

After the beach, I took them to the Park Bench Cafe that caters to dog owners and their dogs.

I ordered the boys their own hamburger dish (see the little paper boat of meat.)

Colt is eyeing the fries...

Here is the video of them at Dog Beach--- I used iMovie to edit it. Pretty fun...


  1. Adorable card, love the little monkeys! The video was great! You are very proficient at editing and adding just the right touch such a filmstrip and credits!

  2. Very cute card .Love those cheeky monkeys! And the MB die looks yummy, I love these dies, they seem to cut so well.
    The boys had a good time at the beach, Colt seemed to like the poodle....!!!!!!
