"Have a Seat" and "It's the Thought" Card for A La Card Monkey Challenge

"Take a Moment"

I love this new challenge this week. I looked around my room to what stamp set to use and the "Have a Seat" set caught my eye. I knew I had not used the cherry paper yet from the DSP "Sweet Shop", and from there the card just kind of made itself. lol

Do you remember the Mary Englelbright saying "Chair of Bowlies" I always loved the Mary Englebright stuff, I used to work at a gift shop that had everything ever made.... it took so much self control not to buy it all!

The Sketch!!!

I could not believe when I found a teeny tiny stamp that had the word "moment" on it.

This is how I made the mini tag.

 
 
Here is another card I made, but I used Pool Party ribbon. This one I remembered the cherry on the chair.
