I’m bananas about you!

Yesterday I posted a layout I completed about Matt participating in the Austin Gorilla Run in January. While making that page I thought I would use more banana embellishments than I did, so I had a few extras scattered around on my craft desk. In a bold move I decided to challenge myself to use at least one of those bananas in a Valentine’s Day card for Matt. (I really hate to waste things I’ve cut on my Silhouette.)

The answer to my card conunudrum came in the form of another primate. I pulled out an old set of clear stamps with monkeys and palm trees and my Copic markers and created the least Valentiney Valentine’s card ever!

I also wanted to participate in this month’s Young Crafters Unite challenge, so I followed their sketch in making my card and I’m entering it in the challenge.

Young Crafters Unite! Challenge #6


The YCU challenge sketch I followed.

For reasons unexplained she loved the monkey man. Happy Valentine’s Day, Love!


I made this to be Matt's Valentine's Day card, even though the colors are a bit non-traditional for this holiday.

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Janice this card made with your leftovers is just adorable. I love the way you have your sweet monkey hiding behind the tree, watching to see if anyone will notice her if she run’s out and grabs the banana. The non traditional colours are refreshing to see for this occasion as is the fabulously fun sentiment.

  2. the cutest, I am sure Matt loved this!!
