CCC #36... Day-o, day-o!!

Hello friends... another Tuesday is here and with comes a brand new CASology challenge.   I think we can all safely say that last week's cue word was rather well... challenging!  Hopefully this week's cue word will not be quite so challenging for everyone.  So... without further ado this week's cue word is "song".  And this week we also have a fabulous sponsor The Alley Way Stamps!!  If you haven't seen their super fun and fabulous stamps then you really need to check them out like right now.  TAWS was so kind and provided the CASology design team with super fun sets to play with and I received the cute Tropic Topic set.  And when I spied the cute little monkey in the set I got the idea to base my card on the "Banana Boat Song" also known as "Day-o".  All the deets for this week's challenge can be found here.


 
The little monkey was stamped on kraft cardstock using black ink and trimmed out.  I thought about coloring him a bit but decided to just leave him as is for this card.  A couple of bananas were stamped on yellow cardstock and trimmed out.  The cream cardstock piece was run through my Big Shot with a piece of burlap (hessian as it is called in Europe) on top to create the texture.  I got this idea from the amazingly talented Jenny of Crafting in the Country... the girl is an absolutely brilliant papercrafter so check out her blog!!  I knotted the ends of a small piece of cording and adhered to the card and then attached the little monkey.  A piece of kraft cardstock was run through the big shot using the burlap as well, a piece trimmed out and I handwrote the sentiment on it.  It was attached along with the bananas.  I think I should have put a banana in the monkey's hand, but too late now!!

Thanks for stopping by.... I really cannot wait to see what song related ideas all you super talented papercrafters come up with for this challenge!! In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth, Judy, Maureen, and Meghan
