Hang in there

Hey Crafters,

today I'd like to show you a whole set of cards, but before I do so I need to tell you:

The idea was not mine, I got it from wonderful Jennifer McGuire. Please visit her blog, if you don't already do that regularly. It's absolutely worth it. And please also check out her original card here.

When I saw her cat hanging in there, I just knew I wanted to do something similar. And with Newton's Nook "Hanging around" I had just the stamp set for it. So I stamped all of these animals and also two from Create a Smile and colored them with alcohol markers  before cutting them out. Then I chose brightly colored card bases and stamped them with tone-on-tone tiny images (clouds, berries, nuts, clothes pins and feathers). I added matching twine and some neutral (grey and craft) and white panels to assemble the cards.

I really like how they turned out, though I wish I had a banana stamp for the  monkey and a ball of wool for the cat. I used clothes pins instead for these two card bases, but they are difficult to see.

Jennifer, I really love your idea! Thanks for letting me share these cards.
