I'm Bananas about You!

I hope you all are looking forward to starting your weekend! They are calling for snow all weekend here and I have to work so I hope your weekend is looking better than mine :)

Tonight I am playing along withtwo challenges the first is  Cupcake Inspirations and here is the inspiration photo

I was inspired by the colors but mostly I took inspiration from that adorable little monkey!

The second challenge is CAS-ual Fridays: Just for the Pun of it

The sentiment was just too cute to pass up!

The digital stamp I used is from Bugaboo Stamps. It is part of the Valentine Critters line they created. I used the whole lot of them to make Valentine bags for the kiddies in my life. In fact I never did post those . . .I'll have to make sure I do they are super cute :)

Anyway back to the card at hand :) Before I printed the monkeys out I flipped one of them and cut off the hair/bow to make it a him instead of a her :)
I printed the monkeys and sentiment out. I actually printed the monkeys twice. I colored them with my marvy markers. To add some depth I cut out the hearts and little hands from the second set I printed and fussy cut them out. They were attached with dimensional adhesive. I also added an extra eyelash to the girl and darkened her existing eyelashes.

I realy wanted to add the glittery red paper but didn't have any . .so I made my own. I colored the punched (EK Success) piece red then added stickles in burgandy and xmas red. I cut the sentiment into a banner and added it with dimensional adhesive. To finish off the card I added glossy accents and xmas red stickles to the hearts.

Thanks for taking a peek, I'll be back tomorrow with another card :) to say "fussy cutting" would be a vast understatement lol
