Not only have I been time-poor lately, but now my mojo has gone into hiding somewhere and I can't find it!!!! :( I'm beginning to get the odd day to myself where I could be playing...but NO inspiration has been forthcoming...very frustrating!
Anyhow...it's our grandson, Brody's, birthday on 26th and I really wanted to make him a card like Helen made HERE. I loved this card when Helen made it and asked if I could case it for Brody...isn't it great to have very clever friends who let you case their brilliant work lol :)...so while I was visiting Helen in August I stamped a heap of monkeys from her SU set, all ready to go.
Here's the card:
This is the first pop-up card I've ever made! There's no colouring on this card...never feels quite right when I don't do any colouring! I bought the Barrel of Monkeys game to go with Brody's birthday presents...it's an oldie but a goodie :)...hope he likes it!
Now to find some inspiration to make Amy's card...her birthday is the day before Brody's and she's turning 5...they grow up SOOOO fast!!
CS: All CM from my stash except for SU Whisper White
Stamps: Monkey from SU Fox & Friends set (thanks Helen)
Wording: All computer generated
Other: Fiskars texture plate (for the woodgrain on barrel), foam dots
I'm entering this in the Totally Papercrafts challenge this week which is "Happy Birthday"
