Hang in There

The stamps & brads are not from Stampin' Up like most of mine but everything else is. The stamps are some that I've had for a long time so you  probably won't be able to find them but any monkey with a nice, long tail will do.

Marina Mist cardstock 2 5/8 x 3 7/8"
Wild Wasabi cardstock 2 5/8 x 3 7/8"
Kraft cardstock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"
3/16" Corner rounder punch (#119871)
Extra large ovalpunch (#119859)
Watercolor Pencils (#101879)  My personal favorite for coloring my images
Always Artichoke marker
Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430)

Cut the trunk to make the tree taller. Then place your greeting over it.

Be sure to use dimensionals to pop up the monkey and the leaves on the tree.

Let the monkey swing from a tree limb.

What's going on

For my regular followers, I'm sorry that I haven't been posting here for a while. Hopefully, that will soon change.

My shoulder is making great progress. I'm still doing exercises for it but I'm rarely in pain with it these days. Praise God! I'm doing most of my regular activites, except for anything that requires putting weight on this arm. I have made a few cards and will try to get some posted soon.

Things are a bit crazy right now because we are having to do a lot to help my hubby's brother. His brother has had cancer for quite some time now & is getting much worse. My David had to place him in a nursing home 2 weeks ago and since he has power of attorny, he is having to take care of all of his brother's financial issues. Fortunately for us, his brother has the money to cover everything needed but there is still all the paper work. I'm trying to help all that I can with this. That is taking up much of my extra time plus I'm trying to "be there" for my sweet husband. I will post items when I can but right now I can not promise anything on a regular basis.

Here's a quick card for you to take a look at.

Enjoy making your cards.
