Too much monkey business

Not only do I love that I am going to Monkey Cafe today to help raise money for Marie Curie cancer care by selling my crafty wares , it has given me oodles of titles for posts as I can think of loads of songs with the word 'monkey' in it hee hee.

I think this card maybe a little too simple, not sure but I love the colours and the cute little button. It is from the latte collection of buttons from Stampin' Up! If you need anything give me a shout :D

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Greetings eight.
Ink: Chocolate chip and pumkin pie for sponging.
Card stock: Pumpkin pie, very vanilla and kraft.
Misc: Button from latte collection and linen thread.

I hope your having a FAB time at the Monkey Cafe! Spread the word - Emma's creations rock and will be worth a fortune in future years when you're a famous crafter relaxing in the Bahamas ;D!
Your card is beautiful - no way too simple but confident in the CAS styleee! Love the colours you've used and that little button is just so cute (I'm a sucker for buttons!)

Hi Emma, not too simple, think confident minimalist, love the little flap with the button, so cute. Good luck at The Monkey Cafe, I'm sure you'll sell lots of stuff and get loads of orders, and what a brilliant charity. Have a great weekend, Love Jane xx

I don't think it's too simple at all - simple is good, easy on the eye and good design - always better IMHO! Fab colour too - I'll post about your blog candy on my blog when I get back after the weekend, have a great time at the Monkey Cafe. ("in the jungle the mighty jungle"...gah, you got me singing now!) Have fun! Kate x
