Oh Happy Day!

Oh Happy Day it's Friday!  I survived the first night with the hubby out of town and the kids did pretty well.  Thank goodness for my dad and allowing them to burn some energy right before dinner in the yard.  They were knocked out by 9p which made me one HAPPY mama!!!  Oh the possibilities of playing with my new Avery Elle goodies!  I was recently introduced to Avery Elle stamps and have fallen in love with the Funky Monkey set. 

I wanted to join their latest challenge following their sketch.  Here's my take...

Avery Elle Funky Monkey, AE Oh Happy Day, Avery Elle-ments Tags, Amy Tangerine Yes, Please paper pad, Memento Rich Cocoa Ink, My Clever Creations button, raffia, copic markers

I had soooo much fun stamping and fussy cutting everything!  The leaves were from the branch included just colored in and carefully fussy cut and glued to be dimensional.  Isn't that cute little button ADORABLE?!?  I bought them from a fellow bloggy friend that sells handmade buttons and frames and almost didn't use it because I prefer to hoard them!  I finally convinced myself to use just one...hehehe.  You can check out her cute stuff here!
Here's the sketch...
I will also be entering this in CAS-ual Fridays Challenge: Over the Edge as the monkey and banana clusters are "over the edge." And since I'm loving the tag dies from Avery Elle I'll also be entering A Blog Named Hero's Challenge: Tags

P.S.-  I also made these simple cards using AE Oh Happy Day sentiment.  Can you tell AEI{heart}U?!?
They were easy to reproduce in mass quantities as I had an order to fill.  As you can see I like to make all my parts of the card first and then assemble while watching a DVD with the kiddos.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and as always MAHALO for stopping by!
