April Showers

April brings more than showers actually, since Sunday we've had wind, snow, hail and today bright bue sky and sunshine and it's only the 5th! 
Finally I've managed to take a break from monkey making long enough to make a card, I had a new die Honeysuckle Vine from Memory Box which I was dying to use. I used an old Miss Anya stamp which I coloured with Promarkers and then masked while I sprayed it with a new (to me) product  Goosebumps Texture Spray from Tsukineko which gives my background a wet, april showery look.

Here’s a pic of some of the monkeys I’ve been working on for the last few weeks, these ones have been sent off to their new home now and I've started another batch for some upcoming craft fairs.

Hi Jenni, I have found a chance to slowly catch up on everyone. I really have no idea where my time has gone. This card is so lovely, terrific colours and I have not heard of that Goosebump item...will have to check that out. Love all those monkeys you have sure been a busy lady. Such wonderful brights colours. I am sure they will be loved dearly.
