Cheeky Monkey!!



Good Afternoon.  

We are still enjoying lovely sunshine in the North East but the weather men say it's going to be cooler by Saturday just in time for the Children's Easter holidays.  I'm hoping it warms up again on Sunday!!

Over at Simply Stampin' we have a sketch to follow.  My card is rectangular but I hope that's still ok.  

So take a look at this cheeky monkey!  He's popped a crown on his head and is having a good look in the mirror! Hee Hee.

If you are a regular you will know that I've been having a play with Fox and Friends this week.  As Sale-A-Bration ends very soon, I thought I'd team up one of the sets with Fox and Friends.  Elementary Elegance sprung to mind and I got the idea of making the frame a mirror.  Of course the monkey just fits the bill to be the one having a cheeky peek at his reflection.  To do this I stamped the frame in River Rock on Whisper White and again on a post it note.  Then punched out the centre of the post it note with the Curly Label Punch.  I then stamped the monkey through the mask in Soft Suede.  I added a crown in River Rock with a Basic Rhinestone in the centre.  I kept the mask in place and lightly sponged some Pool Party to look like the glass in the mirror.  

The panel is attached to a mat of Pool Party which has been edged with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  From my scraps I attached a strip of Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (another free set from Sale-A-Bration).  

The sentiment is also from Elementary Elegance and stamped in River Rock on Whisper White and attached to a Pool Party mat.  I snipped the ends for a ribbon tag effect. This was all attached to a mat of Poppy Parade with a card base of Whisper White. 

Well my cheeky monkeys have arrived home from school and are raiding the food cupboards.  They love it when Mum has done the weekly shop and there is plenty of goodies to choose from! 

Card - Whisper White, Pool Party, Poppy Parade

Oh, that is so sweet Aileen, the monkey is so cheeky with his crown! Great to see the sketch used on a rectangle card, it works equally well. A really fun and fab card!
