"Swinging" in with Some Exciting news ~ and a Birthday Card :)

Morning Everyone!!

Well it is the start of the Holiday weekend and we are getting ready to spend it at the lake. The weather is going to be nice so that should make for a fun filled weekend!

But I have some EXCITING news to share! Stephanie over at Whimsical Wednesdays has asked to me stay on the DT for another term. I am so excited and so very grateful! I just love this challenge site...we have excellent challenges, amazing projects linked up every week and the sweetest DT members! Make sure to head over to the Whimsical Wednesdays Challenge Blog to meet the new DT, say hi and enter our Get Well Challenge for Angelo.

Also on Friday July 8th Whimsical Wednesdays is having a Blog Hop!! Another chance to swing by all the DT's blogs and check out all of our projects. I know there will be some excellent blog candy up for grabs as well as!!

I want to share a card I made for my Nephew's 1st birthday. It is today and yesterday I posted the canvas wall hanging I made for him. This is the card to go along with his birthday present.

I used paper from DCWV~The Playtime Stack and Changito Bday Stamps.
I used 2 pieces of the same paper from the stack, one for the base and then cut the monkey from the other. I attached him on top of the base with foam dots.
The sentiment was stamped on the same paper and also attached with foam dots. I added stitching around the sentiment to match the monkey and vines which were already on the image.
There are some candi's in the corner in green which lucky for me are the same color.
I love how this turned out....a simple cricutless card for my favorite little monkey :)

Thanks for stopping by....have a WONDERFUL and SAFE holiday weekend! I will be back on Tuesday to say hello and check out all your great weekend projects!
