Before I jump on the Valentine train... I had to make something for Chinese New Year first! This year it falls on Feb. 8, according to the lunar calendar- 2016 is the year of the Monkey!
I totally fell in LOVE with the Lunar Animals & Extra sets from Mama Elephant and *HAD TO HAVE THEM!* The past couple of years I've made my own lucky red envelopes to give my kids, nieces, and nephew- and these stamps are just perfect!
I created my scene using the plum branches and lanterns- and thought it was a perfect perch for the sweet little monkey! I also stamped and fussy cute another monkey for the back- I placed a small piece of foam tape on the the bottom half of his body, leaving part behind his head free to keep the envelope flap closed.
And since these are for Chinese *NEW* Year- I'm entering them in the Something New challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!
Thanks for stopping by... now to get started on those Valentines!
