Swinging By

I finally have a card to share today!  Today is my day over on the Paper Works Co blog.  They have a new release coming up this month and I'm sooo excited about it.  Are you interested in checking out the images?
 Well Peggy is doing things a bit differently this release.  Please check out the blog for all the details on a fun game that we will be playing up until the release.  I'm pretty sure that you are going to LOVE this release.

Allllllrighty, my card today uses leftover paper from last months card kit, as well as, some leftover MME paper.  I just love it when a double sided themed paper can be used year round.  The yellow dotted paper is from the valentine themed Beloved Collection.  It's called," Sweet Hearts."  The brown dotted is from the Animal Stackers Collection and can be found HERE.  Isn't that brown ric rac the cutest?  It't the perfect touch for a masculine type card I think.  My idea for the limb came from the last issue of Paper Crafts magazine.  I used a real twig...FRESH~ that's important.....and just cut out some leaves from my stash of Prism paper.  My little monkey is Mikey and he is part of the Jungle Jesters Collection complete with a set of sentiments.  The bundle is HERE.  I made this for yet another nephew.  He likes to climb so I think he might be a monkey.  I'm sure his momma thinks that too.

I made this card using the Sweet Sunday Sketch and will also enter it into The Pink Elephant Challenge 61 which is nature.

I really hope to have another card to show you tomorrow.  We shall see.  This week is not mine.  Spring Break and we have been doing something together each day.  Nothing that fun, just busy.  Hoping the rain holds off today so we can go to the park.  I have a house full of kids today.

Have a goodie!
