My Bugaboo Friday Freebie Card.

It's Friday! Which mean "It's Friday Freebie" over on the Bug!! (If he's not there yet, he will be soon!'s probably still yesterday in America!) Don't you just louve him! It's Stock Monkey, with a pencil, ready for any project you want to make and he's free all this coming week over on Bugaboo! HERE . And see what the Bug-Team have made HERE
See more of his friends HERE and while you're there look out for yesterdays Oldie but Goodie Thursday Creations made by the Bug-team with Images from awhile ago but still 'Goodies'!
Here's my Guest Designer Card: All the Green, yellow and red lines all the way round the card and on the layers, were coloured with Promarkers.
The topper starts off with yellow and green Promarker edging a card, then some wording in black and white, which I did on the computer, then monkey cut out with my deckled edged Nestabilities, so some of him gets cut off. Then to make him whole again, I've covered him with another monkey, then covered that monkey with a monkey with one leg, and lastly, covered that monkey with another monkey's head, paw (hand?) and paw holding the apple. (that's a lot of monkeys!!)
I touched him up (in a nice way!) with a white gel pen. His face got a bit creased where I 'curled' the paper with my finger in the palm of my hand. The 'back 2 skool' was done on the computer, in bold. (white on black)
The Font is a freebie, linked it before. It's called Billy Bear's Crayons, or Google the name or download it @ Billybear4kids(link on side bar)
Freebie Papers: The large black board type paper comes from Free Digital Scrap Booking. I've linked them loads of times so you've probably got it, if not stay a while, loads of papers for you to download, join their News Letter for up dates and talking about News Letters, join Bugaboo's New Letter too, get to know about everything Bugaboo before everyone else and get a freebie!!!
Back later to add the right links if they're wrong, more pictures, coz I forgot to take any of the inside and to add more challenges... coz I've lost my notebook... again...

  1. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in Creative Busy Bee Craft Inspirations, under the Page 1 post on Aug. 31, 2012. Thanks again.

  2. I like your card! It's very cute and apt for back-to-school theme. :-) Visiting from WOYWW, a few days late.


  3. Fun card, that is a cute background! thanks for joining us for the "Back to school" challenge at the Papercraft Star.

  4. Great card Lynn! Love the 3d effect and those papers are wonderful!

    1. It wouldn't be the same without your fab Bugaboo images!

  5. Hi Lynn - Love your card! Gorgeous image (must head over to Bugaboo & pick him up!) and what a lot of monkeys you've layered up! Love your DPs too. Thanks for sharing this great card at Lexi's Creations for our "Back to School/College" challenge.

    1. Thank you! Don't forget to call in the bug!

  6. Very cute card Lyn :)
    Can I ask - how did you print white lettering? I hope that doesn't seem dumb, but I've tried a few times and it hasn't worked; the paper just feeds through blank, no matter what colour paper I use. I've tried highlighting the background too. Thanks :0)

    1. I've emailed you, but basically, have a text box fill in with black, (You don't wait to print a whole page in black ink!) change the font colour to white!

      Play the secret messages game with the kids!

  7. WOW that is a lot of fantastic layering!!!! Totally STUNNING card Lyn! Not only do you draw fantastic digis but you also do great cards!
