It's The Simple Things...


I have to admit that I look forward to those days when I can just lock myself in my craft room for the day and have a play!  The stairstep card to the right is the result of just that kind of day.  I spent all day Saturday upstairs surrounded by my Distress Inks and Cosmic Shimmers and various other craft supplies and I was in heaven!  Like I said, it's the simple things in life.  I did make one or two other cards (including the one below) on Saturday, but I have to admit, this is the stairstep card that took up most of my day, with all the cutting and colouring!  I'm not sure if you can tell but there are three steps to this card and the monkey in front is swinging by a vine from the palm tree in the back section.  The jungle boy is supposed to have a net in his hand but I cut it out and made it look like he is catching the monkey on his swing to the front.

You'd think I have too much time on my hands from this. NOT!  But I did have too much fun!

Happy crafting, Sue x

I 've ordered the three stamp plates on the strength of your programme last week Sue. Your cards are BRILL! Could we have the measurements of the folds and also the size envelope you used?
Thanks
