Do the Hula!

I was so excited to be able to use Dustin Pike's images for my Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I hope you will go over and check out my sketch site. Dustin's digis are at DoodleDragonStudios. You will find such a fun variety of digis there. I had so much fun creating these cards with his images.

If you play along this week, you have a chance to be the weekly winner and choose three images from

Today at the last minute I still needed to make my hula card. Boy, was I doing the hula while making this card. I had so much fun creating this card and really got into the hula mood.

Can you believe I colored in 18 birthday monkey invites? Wooh, I'm glad they're done!!!

Can you believe I cut out 19 monkeys all together? I'm so glad they're done.

All the monkeys were first printed on white paper. Then I printed the hula monkey and the birthday monkey on a lighter brown paper. Then they were glued down to the white paper after all the brown images were colored with copics. The hula monkey has crystal effects on the coconut, bracelets and on the center of the flower. Then I added those lovely rhinestones.

I hope my Hula card puts you in a happy frame of mind. I hope you have such a sweet week and remember to Do the Hula!
