Money Holder

Know all those FRNs I've been saving by not spending...I gave them to my son for his birthday.  LOL.  I created a money holder like the ones from the bank to hold the FRN. 

I used colors from the color challenge, CC332 - I think it was Pool Party with Wasabi Chips?...that means...Pool Party, Chocolate Chip and Wild Wasabi...all colors I LOVE.    Fishing Riley...purchased when the boy was in Scouts...never thought I would use it because he and his Daddy were going fishing at least once a week this month!  WOW!  Heck...I didn't think my husband was gonna go fishing.  I'm still in shock.  But it's a good shock.  LOL

The longer Riley sits there, the better he looks. 

I colored him with SU! Markers, I sold my Copics.  Michelle Zindorf does a wonderful job showing ways to use the SU! Markers for shading.  My marker storage system helps greatly with determining colors to use for shading.  I made a note to share that in a future blog post. 

One FRN by the name of Benjamin Franklin was inside. 

I think this is the first time I've used that fishing pole stamp.  I purchased it off E-bay in a "lot" of stamps. 

HOW TO:  I found the tutorial here:  Stamp & Scrap with Frenchie.  It's pretty straightforward.  Pool Party panel is 8.5 x 6.5; scored at 3.25 & 6.5.  The Chocolate Chip panel is 6 5/8 x 3 3/8. 

It's a nice sturdy money holder...Mom suggested I do up some to hold the gift cards at Christmas time. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a moo'valous day! 


  1. This is such a cute card! I love your Riley.

  2. CUTE...CUTE...CUTE...I say go with CAS for money cards since it's the insides that matter!
