Go Bananas!!!


Here is a card I made about a month ago for the High Hopes Project of the Month for April! Each month they have a special group of stamps, that when purchased together are sold at a discount!! It's a great way to get a bunch of stamps that coordinate and can be used together, and they are on SALE!! Who doesn't love a sale?? For all the details, just email Tina at highhopesstamps@sympatico.ca .

I started out by grabbing some patterned paper that had greens and browns in it because of course the tree would be green and the monkey would be brown! So I used some Three Bugs in a Rug paper and a Chocolate Chip square card base. I stamped the Banana Tree on Wausau bright white and stamped the monkey and bananas separately. I coloured them in using my Copic markers and cut out the monkey and bananas. I layered them on the card and added some of that delicious wide satin ribbon. I also used my Sakura Stardust gel pen to add sparkle to the outlines on the bananas. You can't really see it in the pic, but it looks really cool!!

Gotta work again today until 8:30pm, so I'm trying to squeeze in some stamping time this morning, between laundry loads. But then I have Friday-Monday off....woohoooooo!! I'll hopefully be able to stamp my heart out.....between yardwork, cleaning floors etc. BUT tomorrow I have big plans to do some serious krafty shoppin' with my girlfriend Donna! We both happen to have the day off so we are taking a road trip!! Yippeeeee!!!

Kimmie, I love all the elements of this card! And I believe "delicious" is clearly the choice for how great the ribbon is! Unfortunately, instead of craving bananas, the ribbon is so chocolately now I want chocolate! Heheh :)
