Monkey'n Around!!

Hello Everyone & Welcome to Suzanne's Whacko World!!  I tell ya I am LOSING it lately--it must be all this snow (and yes we're supposed to get over 20+ inches starting Friday)--I think I need a vacay to a tropical island for 2 weeks!  I have lost sooo many things this week that I'm starting to question my brain power, LOL!  I lost my camera battery charger, can't find it anywhere & yes my camera is dead so I've had to borrow my son's and it cost me $25 to replace the charger--ugh!  Then I lost my Scor-Pal tool so I ordered 2 replacements and lo' and behold I found it today in my stamp drawer, LOL!  And today I couldn't find my memento ink pad anywhere (thankfully I have 2 backups)--couldn't figure out what I did with it because it never leaves my desk ya know!  Well guess where it was.................under my butt pillow in my chair, LMBO (yes I sit on a pillow on top of my chair---I need the extra cushioning, hee hee)!  I HAVE NO IDEA how it got there I tell ya--it's an obvious sign of me losing it that's what, LOL!  I think I'm gonna take the snowed in weekend to just sleep and maybe find my brain along the way!


-Susana's Custom Art & Card Design has some new stuff in the store for ya!  New Magic Mesh in different textures & lots of pretty colors (I'll be doing a fun video on ways to use it real soon).  Also the Brand New Smooch Colors are in---both paints and spritz and the new Smooch Illuminate which is a must have!!

Pink Cat Studio Digi Stamp Release

Today Pink Cat Studio releases some fabulously cute and fun digi stamps!  I had so much fun with these that it's almost a crime I tell ya, LOL!  You can find all of these cuties right HERE!  For this card I used "Monkey Hanging from Tree" and I just love him.  I used some DCWV "Nana's Kids" papers (see the lil monkey in the train, hee hee) and distressed all of my layers very heavily.  I painted some Basic Grey chipboard letters with my acrylic paints and added them with dimensionals--I think they add some whimsy & fun to the card.  Monkey was colored with copics and a few stickles added along with some PTI buttons.  I think this would be cute as a wall hanging too after it was given as a card!

This lil' guy is called "Frog in Love" and I just love him!  I made my card so that it was appropriate for many occasions not just Valentine's Day.  The papers are "Lilac Avenue" by Kaisercraft--I love the plum and green color combo.  The borders were done with a MS punch and the bow was made with my best buddy the Bow Easy!

Froggie was colored with copics and then I added diamond glaze to his eyes and the balloons (I colored the polka-dot balloon with my Copic Spica pens).  The outside of the circle got a think coat of stickles for sparkle and the sentiment is from PTI's "Tiny Valentine's" set.  Now make sure and visit the Pink Cat Studio blog to see all the great projects by the DT and don't forget to stop by the store HERE to shop :o)

See ya back here tomorrow!


  1. Both of your cards are so adorable!
    Loved your story on losing things that happens to me all the time drives me crazy! Thanks for the smile.

  2. these are just so much fun!! Love them!

  3. Oh, that little froggie is just adorable!! I love the card and the colors you used. Also, you are costing me money with your book reviews! I sent a sample of CeeCee Honeycutt to my Kindle then had to buy it - thanks a lot!! That's okay because I've been reading several free books so this won't break my bank too much. It does look like a really good book.

  4. Suzanne, these are so cute! I just love them. hugs Sheley

    Just wondered, where do you get all your time from to do all these wonderful projects? You must be wonder women!

  8. Okay..really? Please tell me that's a're supposed to get 20 inches of snow...are you kidding?? UGH! Well, I guess the brightside is that now you HAVE to stay home and craft. :) Love your two cards. The images are adorable and your coloring and layouts are fabulous as always! Funny stories too!

  9. Suzanne, I love what you did with the images this week! That monkey baby card is perfect and I love the colour combo on the frog card!!

  10. Suzanne, you have obviously not lost your mojo. Your cards are beautiful!!
    So sorry to hear that you are tired of your weather. I'm thinking that it might be a good idea for you to send over some of your snow this way where we are supposed to have some snow for the olympics. We've had such a mellow winter, it's pathetic!
    Or you could come over here where to watch the olympics!!
    Hope you have a great day!!
