Stamp release Party Day 6-Blog Hop

It's blog hop day and that means extra fun! Today, each design team member will be showcasing a NEW stamp set of their choice and then EACH design team member will be giving away a NEW stamp set to one lucky commenter. YES! That's nine chances to win one of the cute newly released stamp sets. For the blog hop I made some invitations and thank you cards for Sammy and her cousin Evan's jungle birthday party-jungle is super popular right now. Every year they celebrate their birthday's together, so cute and so fun!
*Thanks* is from the new *Thank You* stamp set by
My Craft Spot. *Date, Time, Place* are from the new set
*New Arrival*.*Let's get this party started* is from the
*Birthday Wishes* stamp set. 
The cute little monkey is from the Create a Critter
cartridge. I punched the little flowers to match Sammy's
flowers on her shirt.
I stamped the cute little monkey face with a Peachy Keen stamp.
I always like to add a little something to the envelope and to go
with the jungle theme I found some cute clipart from HERE.
Here are the cute thank you cards I made. I saw some plates at a
party store that were for a baby shower, but I really liked the colors
and used the colors for inspiration.
I added some pen work and peachy keen
eyes to my *Sammy tiger*. I added some
brown flock to the coconuts with glossy accents.
I added some dark brown stitching to frame
the card.
I tied a chocolate truffle twine bow.
*You're the best!* is from the new*Thank you*
set. I added some zig-zag stitching. 
Here is the thank you card I made for Evan.
