Monkey Bundle Of Joy

Hey Hey Hey! It's New Release Tuesday at Bugaboo Stamps! If you're like me, you love new release days, because there's always some great new images to check out and shop for! I'm here to show you just one of those adorable new releases, today.  The design team has more new release creations to show you, too, at Catch The Bug, so don;t miss out on those!

Remember, you can find this  new images, and lots more, at the Bugaboo Stamps Store, so run over and start shopping! What are you waiting for?! Hurry! Shop now!

I have a cute new baby card to show you, using this new release Monkey image, from Bugaboo Stamps. Isn't this just the cutest little monkey girl, sitting on that big banana?! The image is colored with Promarkers. I used a fun sketch that just seemed to fall out of my head onto the paper. I went with a monochromatic theme, but, of course, had to make the banana yellow.  After all, who's ever heard of a pink banana?! I used my new pink gemstones to embellish two corners of the image and three corners on the white patterned paper panel. The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 you and is punched with circle and scalloped circle punches. All papers are from my stash.

I am entering this baby card in the following challenges:

  7. Oh this is so sweet Sammi ..... I have to smile as I so often used to call my mob 'cheeky monkeys' whilst I enjoyed their innocent mischief. Lovely days. I think any new mum of a second or subsequent baby girl would get an extra big smile with this beautiful card as she would already have some experience of the significance of this delightful image.
