(my apologies to nancy reagan)

...but you know monstas...

on the plus side: they're great at lookin' cute and conveyin' holiday greetings

on the minus side: they'll steal catchphrases from absolutely ANYONE; and you definitely don't want to leave your xmas cookies unattended...or your socks...or your smaller furry pets...

anyway here's the latest card:

(monsta cut from paperchase giftwrap; patterned paper: basic grey, mustard moon, dcwv + vintage sheet music; cardstock: core'dinations; bling circle: heidi swapp; letter stickers: 3 bugs; cardstock sticker: 7 gypsies; epoxy sticker: michaels $ spot; other: fiskars border punch, dymo labeller, colorbox inks; zig pen; foam tape)

tune in tomorrow for a very special caardvarks gallery in which lauren is thrown UTTERLY out of her comfort zone...with verrrry different...but still quite interesting...results!!!


  1. My grey dog just lifted his head up to find out why I was laughing!

  2. Wooo Hooo for the monstas!!!! Keep 'em coming this one with bling and an understated "Humbug"....good grief rock the monsta world {very different from the gangsta world} You have been intrigued about tomorrow's unveiling...hmmm....what could it be? Perhaps a zen monsta :)

  3. okay....too much coffee for amy...I meant to type:

    You have ME intrigued about tomorrow's unveiling...

    Sorry about that...I do know how to type...

  4. First of all, I LOVE YOUR MONSTAS!!! Happy happy happy.
    Second, Laura wasn't the only one thrown for a loop. That challenge did not like me so much.

  5. K, unlike Amy, I didn't have ENOUGH coffee this morning....
    You say Lauren, I read Laura.
    Anyhoo, I totally LOVE your cards and have no clue what you are talking about cause you rock anything you do!

  6. OMG- I am laughing! This is great- love the humbug - just say NOel. How do you always do it????? Love it!!! debb

  7. I'm with Amy...whooohooo for the monstas!!!! Though I find it slightly disturbing that an otherwise nekkid monsta is wearing shoes and socks...LOL!!!
    Another awesome monsta card....keep em coming :)

  8. This is an awesome card!! I love your monsta series cards. Too cute!! I so want a hint to what the new caardvarks challenge is! Temptin' me so with the vagueness of how challenging it is!! eee!! Can't wait.

  9. Absolutely hilarious ... love how the little humbug is peaking out ... he's probably a humbug monsta because he had to add up all of those numbers on the DP (trust me, it can make any monsta cranky).

  10. Too funny! I can think of several people I could send a card like this to. I'm loving your monstas! They're just too much fun!

  11. come on with it
