March Blog Hop - It's A Zoo!!!

What a super fun theme for the Clear Dollar Stamps' monthly blog hop!! Each month, the design team members are given a theme to work around. We're allowed to interpret that theme in any way we choose. There are some fantastic interpretations this month, and I KNOW you want to see them all!!!

Hopefully, you came here from Sarah's blog where she has shown you something incredible, but if not, and you just happened to stop by here today, you'll want to head back to Lori's blog to get started on this fun Blog Hop. She has the list there of all of the participants, as well as the details on the contest and prizes. Yep!! PRIZES! You could win just by commenting on one or all of the blogs in the hop. The more blogs in the hop that you comment on, the better chance YOU have of winning! Two comments randomly selected from all of the blog hop posts will each win a great prize this month. The winners will be announced here, as well as Lori's blog, on March 23rd. Don't miss your chance to win!!!

What could YOU win??
Two lucky winners will each receive a $10 gift certificate for the CDS store!!!


So, my interpretation of "It's A Zoo?" Here ya go!!



I created the cage card using the Cricut and SCAL. Two rectangles were welded together and 6 other rectangles were cut out of one side making the 'cage' bars. The card base was cut from silver glitter paper. The stamped, colored inside piece was white, and was adhered to the inside of the cage leaving the bars loose - with the exception of the outer rim.

Card Recipe -
Stamps - Monkey Madness
Paper - glitter, white, olive
Ink - black
Copics - B00, E31, E33, E37, G21, G24, G28, G94

Accessories - Cricut, SCAL, Tabs & Tags dies, black dot., pop dots


So what do you think?? Is this a fun theme or what??! Now, you need to do the kangaroo hop right on over to Linda's blog to see what awesome creation she has to show you.



I will have several things to show you this week, so make sure you check back soon. Don't forget that we'll announce the winner of this hop on March 23rd, so check in then, for sure!!!

Have an amazingly blessed Sunday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!

  21. Oh the monkeys are behind the bars!! LOL Too cute!! :D It reminds me of a time we were at the zoo and saw a monkey diligently trying to unscrew one of the bolts to the bars! It was hilarious!! :) He kept looking this way and that as if he were afraid someone would see him and stop him. Thanks for sharing!
