It's a Jungle in here!

I stayed home today instead of helping out at the kids school. Everyone is scared of me! Go figure, got a funky throat, and they all act like ya gonna kill them or something! LOL! Test came back positive for strep. Oddly, I'm happy about that, because it means I can fix that quickly with some good germ killers! Thanks for your well wishes and sweet comments to my last post! Thinking tomorrow, I'll be feeling tip top, and can't help at school, because I won't reach 24 hours with the antibiotics, so I'll have a lot of free time tomorrow! Woo hoo!
Today in my spare time, I stamped! I've talked about these two paper lines before from DCWV. One is Animal Crackers, the other Green. I had to use Green after we had Earth Hour on Sat. I almost thought about making the card by candle light, but I'm sure that would have been scary! It got made today. I used Forrest Friends from The Greeting Farm. This would be one of the Mastercard cards, cost more because I had to have the papers that were on sale! Now, I hope you can see enough of the background paper, do you see how cute those animals are? Don't you think DCWV should have made stamps to match? Doesn't the set from The Greeting Farm go so well? To cute, huh?! I popped one out as well as the acorn. Added some shimmerz, and stickles. Used Amy R's sketch from last week. The metal tag I got from a girl's crafting set on clearance at Target. They were full of tags all about being Green. Perfect touch for this card.
The bright card I started weeks ago. I had the papers pulled out, but never finished the card. Got that done today. How fun are these papers? They are the Animal Cracker line. This set has glitter on them, not sure if you can see it on the crazy pattern sheet, I tried to turn it to show it better. I love the bright colors. And look at the little monkeys at the bottom...love them! I was wishing I had some brown fun flock. I've seen so many of the monkeys with that on there, and it's the perfect touch.
Supplies: DCWV Green, Animal Crackers, and cardstock, SU Tangerine cardstock, nesties, prima flowers, lyra water color crayons, Greeting Farm stamps, shimmerz, blingz, stickles, scrappers floss.

Your cards are GREAT! Glad you can get some medicine and hopefully feel better soon!

I've looked at those DCWV stacks before. I really like what you've done with them so I maybe buying those after all!

Regarding my card today - yes, it's the same company who does Xmas & Easter stamps. I think Glitter is a good idea but I was nervous about ruining my card and I just didn't have the time or energy to do it over again!! Thanks for your compliments!
