{Mojo Monday Contest & Diva Dare} Color Me Spring!

Hello, and Happy Sunday, my Friends!  
Yesterday I created a card for this past week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.  I always enjoy playing along, but especially the first week of the month when there is a chance to win some *awesome* VERVE stamps!    Not only that, but there is also a Color Me Spring DIVA Dare on the Verve blog for more chances to win!!!    WoW!  That's a whole lot of opportunity I couldn't pass up!  : )

 The DIVA DARE challenge is to make a card or project with the theme Color Me Spring.  Well, when I think of SPRING, I think "April Showers Bring May Flowers!"   So I colored up my adorable little Stampendous Changito monkeys playing in the rain and put together this card.

You can see that I followed the sketch almost exactly, although my circle may be a little larger to fit in these cute little monkeys and their umbrella.  

The striped designer paper is fresh out of my scrap bin.  Image was colored with copics and it's all wrapped up with more of my chocolate brown and white bakers twine!    I've still got plenty of twine left to share with all of you, so please email me if you need any.  I've got brown/white and black/white and it's only 2.50 for 25 yards! 

Now, I better get my card linked up to the challenge blogs before the deadline.  I may see you later with a card for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  

Have a great day!

this is so sweet! We have Tuesday off and so I was pulling some stamps that needed some love to get everything ready for a stamping day and pulled the monkeys with the bunny ears to play with. These images just make ya smile!
