The Sweet Stop SSS172 Monkey Smiles

How is everyone enjoying the final few days of summer? My kids go back to school on the 27th so we have one more week of fun. I love having the kids home but I have to admit that I am getting tired and running out of "summer fun" ideas.  It would be different if we didn't live where it is too hot to go out and play.  I am also looking forward to a little bit more of a routine, I think...ask me again in a month.   One thing I am going to miss is sleeping late.  I am not ashamed to admit it, I like to sleep.  It could have something to do with staying up into the wee hours of the morning:)
It is time for another sketch at The Sweet Stop and this week there is a spin which means there is a prize along with the chance to be featured in the the spotlight.  We want to see you use those Die Cuts or Punches.  Normally, I would color something and add a die cut to it but this time I got inspired on Pinterest with Punch Art.  Who knew you could create so many cute things with punches?
 I loved trying something different and it came together really quickly.  I used my Circle, Heart and Oval Spellbinders to create the monkey.  The eyes I just colored into the shape I wanted with a black Sharpie and Poster Pen.  I hit my old paper stash and found this Bo Bunny Mango Luau.  I did move the sentiment down a bit from the sketch but it just fit perfectly it is from C.C. Designs.

I hope you will stop by and visit the rest of the Sugar Babies.

This is so beautiful. So nice design. How can i design like this for the plastic business cards? I really appreciate this fun card. Thanks for sharing.

Zmalik said...

A stunning idea to use monkey on the card but i suggest instead of this you should try light shade, do you have any designs related to plastic cards to be shared...
