Curious George

How many of us LOVED Curious George as kids? I know I did!! About 6 months ago, I saw someone on SCS talking about these Curious George stamps at Target in the Dollar Spot & I freaked!! I HAD to have them!! I commissioned EVERY one I knew, even some I didn't ... to try to find them for me!!! But no luck!!! After I had sadly forgotten about them, my friend Tracy found them at her Target in NY!!! I was ecstatic!!! But of course I had to wait for them to be mailed.....which actually didn't take long! With all the drama in my life, I haven't had much time or desire to stamp so they just sat on my desk, smiling at me with his big grin!! Last night I was in a foul mood, so I thought I'd sit and stamp for a bit to relax my mind! I'm glad I did because I think I came up with TWO really awesome cards! I'm showing you one now, and I'll post the other later (I might be late for work if I did it now!!!) So, here is the Curious George card I made! The card base is Close to Cocoa, and the polka dot DP is Close to Cocoa Designer series paper - both from SU! The sketch I used was an old SCS sketch #155 which is awesome for little stamps! The sentiment is from an oldddd foamy set I got at Michael's about 4 years ago - they were my first set of sentiments & I still quite like them - I might just have to mount them differently cuz the foam is annoying! I added a couple copper brads and some sponging and voila! Cutie George! I coloured him with prismas & Gamsol (OMS). Thanks for visiting! And sorry it took so long to post again - it's been a rough week trying to sort out all the "crap" that now goes along with post-accident claims and such!!! UGH!!!! HASSLE!!!! Off to work...have a great day!!! TGIF!!!!

Adorable card :) Too funny--I bought these stamps for my son, but have no idea what I did with them. Hid them away for safekeeping--lol! After seeing your card, I"m going to have to find them and use them!
