A Barrel of Monkeys

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!'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 :) 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:

and inside:

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'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"

I'm sure Brody will love his very special personalised card Lynne. Congratulations on creating your first pop-up - hopefully there will be more to come! Those cheeky monkeys are way too cute! Hugs :)
