Monkey Thank You and Other News!


Hello!  A friend of mine who volunteers for a monkey rescue organization asked if I could make her 25 monkey themed thank you cards!  Well, this is what I came up with, and I just e-mailed her a picture so we'll see if she likes it :)  I used this adorable monkey image from Whipper Snapper.  I love the look of the cards with rounded corners, but have yet to try it.  I really like how it came out!  I will leave a full recipe below. 

My other news is that I am now a Divine Diva!  The fabulous Lori Rider asked if I would like to be on the DT for her Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge.  Of course I said yes, so the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month I will post our inspiration picture and the card that I made.  I hope you'll play along with us!  My first challenge is this Thursday so come check it out!  Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I'm off to color more monkeys lol!

what a cute card - I saw a post on SCS (Papertrey, here I come) and you don't have your email posted on your blog. I have a post where I have some PTI for sale-good prices and they're in good condition. Let me know if you're interested! My email is linked on my blog

25 MONKEY cards...now there's a different request. I think the twine is a perfect touch for this card and it's more earthy and that'll appeal to the people these cards are for, I bet.

Congrats on your new DT - - never heard of it....can't wait to see your work there.
