Hello to all!!!!!

A great Wednesday at Heartfelt Creations as it is the new release day!!! And I am so excited today as I reveal not flowers but some cheeky  jumping  monkeys who will steal your heart away with their pranks and naughty antics.
They are full of fun, relaxing and taking life as a blast. Life is full of fun and laughter, that is what they show us in this collection.

So are you ready for an adventure?  Grab your water bottle, sunscreen, and safari hat and join us as we explore exotic jungles taking in the lively and entertaining antics of the new Monkeying Around Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Filled with amusing illustrations of ever so charming monkeys, this newest collection is sure to have you “going bananas” with excitement!  

Four entertaining cling stamp sets supply you with an assortment of fun filled, mix and match monkey images to create just the right amount of monkey mayhem for any of your paper crafting project needs, while various sized palm tree fronds, floral accents, bananas, coconuts along with lush palm tree die cuts add a dimensional tropical feeling to your projects with ease!  Trek through a paper collection filled with deep jungle greens, sunlit yellows and ocean like blues, accented with balmy breeze teals, pretty floral pinks and a hint of sunset reds creating just the right tropical color palette to showcase these adorable apes on cards, scrapbook layouts or altered art pieces.  So, come along with us as we join in with the monkey chatter, swing from vine to vine and take part in the shenanigans of the new Monkeying Around Collection!

This is a Shadow box with many monkeys. A young child will especially enjoy having this in his room.
