January blues.

I’ve been working on Valentine cards, trying to get through the January blues. Do you deal with that? The holidays are over and we are in the midst of winter. This year with the pandemic going on and all the unrest in the world, it seems worse than usual. So I’ve been trying to do things that lift my spirits. This little monkey makes me smile.

This die set is from Cottage Cutz. I love their dies. They have so many cute ones for all occasions. I cut the monkey and branch from brown cardstock and everything else from white cardstock.

For the white pieces, I colored them with alcohol markers. I then glued the pieces together.

For the background I used a background die from Simon Says Stamp. I matted that in red and adhered everything together.

I attached it to a white card base and then stamped “Happy Valentines Day”. It all came together very quickly.

I hope this finds you well and I will see you next time!
