Just Swinging By...

Happy Monday! Hope you had a good weekend. I have been a kit making machine lately. Didn't realize I had 2 classes scheduled for this week! Had to re-work one of the projects since the paper I needed didn't come in yet... It worked out though- I think it looks just as good.
So inbetween cutting kits, I managed to make this monkey card. Isn't he cute? He's from Your Next Stamp. Akemi's a monkey, so I thought I could always use it. I totally had a mission in mind when I bought him... I had to make him swing somehow!
So I used the same technique as I did with the Pink Cat swinging Lilly fairy stamp. I just cut out the monkey and used a brad to secure him to the card- which also allows the swinging motion. See how he swings from right to left?
Oops- forgot to show you the senitment inside... it says "Hi". Sorry!
Supplies:
Monkey stamp- YNS
Just Swinging By sentiment- printed from computer
DP- Bo Bunny
Cardstock- Bazzil
Markers- Copics
Brad- Doodlebug
oval and scallop oval dies- Spellbinders
Have a great week!
