Hang In There!

This is a 4.25 X 5.5 inch card.  The background paper is from DCWV Latte Stack.
The cute little monkey is cut from Create A Critter.  I just can"t stay away from that cartridge!
He is from page 46 and is cut at 2.75 inches.
The umbrella is from the American Alphabet cartridge (another favorite) and is on page 40 and cut at 2.25 inches.
The palm tree is from Life is a Beach.  It is on page 41.  The cut includes a small island piece which I didn't use.  I wanted it big so I cut it at 6 inches.
I then added Waterfall Stickles for the rain drops.  For each one I just put a drop of Stickles and then took a large pin (the one I use to clear my glue bottles!) and just pulled each drop down to form the raindrop.

My monkey is on an Action Wobble so he is "floating" through the trees with his umbrella.

For the inside, I used a cut from the Wild Card cartridge.  It is on page 47 and is the Phrase Shift feature.  I cut it on Real Dial Size at 3.5 inches.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge
#107 - April Showers - Make a project with an umbrella, rain, or clouds on it.

Wobble Wednesdays
#6 -Make a project with a pet on it and put it on your Wobble.
I took a little bit of a liberty with the "pet". Since I don't have and won't have a monkey for a pet!!!  But some people do!
