Swinging Monkey at Just Magnolia AND Winner!!
Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope you have all had a delightful week and are enjoying your weekend! I have definitely been missing in action this week...lol...When the Cancer Center called on Wednesday I was feeling GREAT!!! But it was just a friendly reminder that for the next 3 days I would be hitting a wall!!!! Little did I realize that as soon as the call was over that I would hit a re-inforced concrete wall head on...but luckily, as quickly as my bones started to burn on Wednesday, this morning I feel GREAT again!!!
My card for Just Magnolia this week is definitely for me!! hahaha Hang in there, Baby!!! We were given a Tent Card tutorial by Dena and it was so much fun to play with! Thank you so much, Dena!!! I hope you will join with us this week so that you will be eligible for a very nice prize from Simon Says Stamp.
I used Bazzill for the base, PTI for all matting, and the DP is from the BG Origins. I machine stitched both the outside and inside panels before cutting out the aperture with an oval nestie. Next I encircled the opening with vine ribbon which was a lovely gift from the very talented Suzan and added tiny yellow star flowers to match the DP. For the ribbon treatment I used organza ribbon, another star flower AND what's a monkey without a bunch of bananas???? I stamped that darling Magnolia Monkey from the Pet Collection at Magnolia-licious onto Cryogen White, colored that cutie with Copics, cut him out, and used a slip ring to let him swing down through the jungle! I had never used the monkey before but now I see so many uses for him...Diana also has a Hang In There sentiment to use with him. Gosh, he could say "I am bananas over you!", and he will make an ideal little child's card. Sometimes I forget the darling accessory stamps, but this one I will NOT forget!! He is so CUTE!!!!!
Below is a better view of that cute swinging monkey...I just love him!!!
For the back of the tent card I used the same papers and added a little flower arrangement and another decorated bow to the nestie jotting spot!
