Have a swinging day!

First of all, let me apologize for my lack of brain cells this week. I've had a lot of 'stuff' going down and I pretty much feel like Changito here in his tire swing. Except without the goofy grin on my face. Many of you have let me know the link that I posted yesterday to Eclectic Paperie didn't work...I'm so so sorry, I discovered that it's not linkable and you have to go to E.P.'s home page and sign up. So go to the home page HERE and on the toolbar to the left there is a little yellow box that says "sign up for our newsletter". Trust me, you'll want to do that because when these girls start getting in more of the goodies from CHA, you will FLIP! Tomorrow this little Tire swing guy will debut!

Stampendous has always been one of my favorite 'cutesy' stamp lines, even from when I was teaching at Archivers. Can I ask you guys something? Do monkeys eat peanuts? I know that's sort of stupid, but I had already bought the peanuts to fill up my little Stampendous paint can. For some reason I was remembering feeding monkeys peanuts at the zoo. I suppose it doesn't matter...you FOR SURE can't fit bananas in there! Joy had stayed at my house for a Stamping retreat and brought me a little pail full of stamps when she was here last. She's like Santa Claus, only with better toys! I love you, Joyful!

I decorated this paint can with new Cosmo Cricket "bandwith" paper from the "twist & shout" line. The alphabet letters were stamped with the new stampendous letters that will debut tomorrow at E.P. (see bad photo from yesterday!)
I saw these little mini clipboards at CHA in February too...Stampendous was doing a make & take with them. Dang, I forgot the ribbon on the clip part! The tiny sentiment is from A'Muse, "Have a swinging day". Make sure to check out Lana L. & Camipink's blogs for more of the new release Stampendous stuff, too!
I'm off to a stamping retreat this weekend so I'll be missing until Sunday. I'm shooting for 100 cards this weekend. YIKES! The pressure! Hopefully I'll have lots to post, anyway! Have a good weekend!

Very, very cute LZ! I'm swinging a lot this week too, so I can relate. However, I don't think that 100 cards is going to slow you down! Take a deep breath and relax that wonderful mind of yours. It needs a rest ! :)

Too cute!! Had I purchased this stamp without looking at your blog, I would have totally stamped this upside down!! I don't need no more stinkin' monkeys!!!

MWIT said...

These are just too cute! Love your bucket o' nuts. :) You're really rockin' these Changitos!

Lisa, ya know what would be yummy candy to go with the monkey? Those marshmallow Circus Peanuts, to me they have a banana taste. That way, you could get peanuts and bananas in the can, LOL. Love the monkey, btw.

Only complaint is to Paula - you have me wanting those silly circus peanuts.
