Monday evening!! It's a jungle out there!!

Good evening all, I actually did start this post with 'Good Morning', but something came up before I got past the first two words and now it's evening. Life has a way of doing that, doesn't it?

Anyway, I did say I'd be back with some more of the Kraftin' Kimmie's New Release Stamps, so here I am. The card I am posting today is one of the Crissy's Cuties Collection and they are the last ones Crissy drew for us before she moved on. I just love all her images and I especially love the cute animals she creates. This one is called 'Cheeky Monkey' and I think he is just adorable. And if you think he's cute, you should check out Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamp Shop and see the other ones she made for this release. She has done gorgeous piggies, froggies, a bulldog and a fabulous baby zebra. Since Kimmie released 16 images this month, I have not had time to play with the others yet, but I know they will be great fun to colour!!

Well, back to the card. This one was pretty simple as I found this patterned paper in my Paper Studio Day at the Beach pack. I thought it was perfect and didn't need a whole lot of covering up with embellishments. I coloured the monkey using my Copics, punched it out using my Square Nesties, matted it onto Kiwi Kiss, then onto black. I pop dotted the layers onto the DP, which I matted onto Pumpkin Pie, then onto a card base of black. I just added the sentiment 'It's a Jungle out there, cut out with my small tag punch, then glued it to a black tag made with my large tag punch. I put a black eyelet in the top, then thread it through some black cord and that's all.

I will be back with another of the new images tomorrow, I hope. Unless life gets in the way again!! Have a great evening,
