Monkey Business

It's Kyle's 12th birthday on Friday and seeing as we already got him a laptop for his birthday a few weeks ago, when his other one finally went kaput, he has nothing to actually open on the day. As a treat this year he asked if we could all go to "Go Ape" in Delamere Forest so I booked it and told him that they were fully booked and we couldn't possibly get in until at least the May holidays so this will be a complete surprise for him on Friday.

I've done a bit of Hybridizing with the Goin' Bananas kit at Nitwit Collections (thanks to SuzyB) which I knew would be perfect for this. My printer even got some new ink too, about time really as the same cartridges have been sat in it for nearly 2 years now! I can now print out the Hybrid cards I have dabbled with and never actually done anything with.

The printers getting a right work out today. I made this using a Magnolia stamp which I coloured to look like the Liverpool away kit. The football papers are from the Nitwit Collection "Kickin' It" as is the round stamp thingy it had a football in which I digitally removed and changed into a 12.

How gorgeous are those kits?? Ive spent a fortune there now, bad news for my bank account.

Gorgeous cards, and he'll be so chuffed with his surprise x

Go Ape is supposed to be such fun. Any good for a 15 year old boy?

Also try printing your "paper designs" on to textured card and also vellum for different looks. Textured card can look really effective :-)
