Monkeying Around

Good morning all!
I can't get in to my craft room at the mo so I've been doing a 
bit of much needed mooching around to sort out a few things on my laptop!
I've come across quite a few cards I haven't shared with you.
This is one of them!

I am friendly with the family who run our local Chinese takeaway
& I make them a card every Chinese New Year!
This year, is the year of the monkey!
These cute little monkeys were cut using a Tattered Lace die.
The card base is DL size Linen embossed CS.
I printed the sentiment panels & matted & layered.
The card still has pride of place in the shop, which makes me giggle 
every time I go in! 
Thanks for popping in today!

How Many Candles?

Good morning all!
I'm back again with another, not so little card to share with you!
This time, it's a 21st Birthday card I made for my nephew!
Happy Birthday Richard!

The card base is 8"x8"
I used a Tattered Lace die to cut out the candles.
I can tell you it was a true labour of love cutting out all those little pieces
then sticking them all down!
Still, I think the final result was worth it!
The little Celebrate was cut using another TL die.
The paper was from my stash & the Happy Birthday was computer generated.
I also decorated the inside of the card & added a La Pashe, Short 'n' Sweet verse!

Thanks for popping in!
I hope you like this little card.
