It's Your Day...Go Bananas

Wow, it's been few days since I've been here...yikes, time flies!! We've had company here and there the last couple days so that's kept me busy. I finally had a chance to get a card made for a birthday party Kirsten will be going to on Sunday. Gabe was in preschool with Kirsten and is turning 5. He is having a jungle themed party, so I thought Monkey Mike from High Hopes would be perfect!! I stamped the trees on the back piece and then stamped Monkey Mike and the bananas and cut them out and popped them all up on dimensionals for a nice 3D effect. Here is a side view of sorts that shows it a wee bit better.
I decided that it needed some sky and forgot to do that before hand, so I have added a nice sky in the background of the trees with my SU pastels...imagine that with me...I will hopefully re-take the pict and add it here later tonight. It does look much better with the sky added..not so bright white!!
Anyway, off I go, I need to get a move on another birthday card friend Karen's daughter Hailey turns 4 on Saturday. We are off to my Mom and dad's tomorrow for a 2 night sleepover...I have to make a trip to Costco and get some stuff for the 5th wheel, then on Friday I am going to Sugarland with my sisters Kim and Kristy and Kristy's boyfriend Jason...oh my gosh, it;s going to be great!! Then back home at some point on Saturday!! I have some fun blog candy's to check out as well and I have been given some fun awards and been tagged too, so I need to get to that as well....
Thanks for visiting me!!
