Monster Cuteness for Heart 2 Heart

Weeks 3 and 4 for Heart 2 Heart this month were NOvember challenges.  Week 3 was NO Embellishments, and Week 4 was NO Restrictions.  Both were so much fun to work on, because I was working with a really fun stamp with some cute sentiments. 

The stamp set is called Love Ya Silly and has the most adorable little monsters.  My first card, which was NO Embellishments, features one little monster stamped on pattern paper.  I also used a second set with some awesome borders.  I wanted to use ribbon, but thought that might be an embellishment.  So I stuck with all paper, all ink, all stamps. 

Hmmm . . . I think that I might have stepped over the embellishment line when I gave my monster the gift of sight.   

And now for Week 4 which was NO restrictions!  I changed up my pattern paper to Chalk It Up for this next one, but I used that same cute stamp set.  I created little doors so I could use all of the monsters on this card.  Here is the front of the card with the doors semi-closed. 

And then just a peek . . .

And there they are, in all their scary monsterness!  Those sentiments are too darn cute.  I did some surgery on two of the sentiments, cutting them apart so I could stack them.  I later realized that it gives me the option of switching the beginning/ends of all the sentiments.  I could say, "So cute I could squish you!" or "I could just eat you!"  

Either way, they're so adorable.  

Can't wait to play with these little monsters again.
