"Monkey Business"


Today is Fun with Fruit at 365 Cards. I chose to use this little monkey with his bananas. (The bananas are quite small, but you can click on the pic to enlarge). The monkey, bananas and sentiment are all cut from Animal Kingdom. The vine is cut from Zooballoo. The papers are My Mind's Eye (seems to be my fav lately - next to BG!). Sorry that the pic isn't very bright. While photographing this card, I knocked over one of my lamps and broke it. It's one of the little lighting lamps that came with my portable photo studio. If anyone knows where to buy a replacement bulb, let me know. :(
Thanks for stopping by!

First of all this is so cute!! Second, I did the same thing with my little lighting studio - and I ran all over town (Lowe's, Home Depot, camera shops) looking for replacement bulbs. I finally gave up and bought an Ott light, and I'm very happy with it. Unfortunately it was a bit pricey, but considering how many cards I make and photograph, it was worth it.

So cute. Love that little monkey and those bananas falling are adorable. Great job. (No idea on the light bulb. Sorry.)

Adorable, Adorable, Adorable!!!! I too use an Ott light. Not to photograph my cards, but to see with!! I have one that is a floor lamp style with a goose neck. Its wonderful light to work under.

This card is adorable! I see you are a Cricut lover, me too. I don't have these 2 cartridges and now i wish I did.

Cute card - it made me smile - thank you. I may have to lift this one if you don't mind. I did not even think to use my cricut for this challenge - silly me.

What a fun little guy, especially the bananas!

I also use an Ott lite, which I got with a half off coupon at Joann's.

Peace and Luv,
Jeannie

Too cute! I love the bananas! I'll have to remember that little monkey. My aunt and uncle are monkey fanatics!!!

Sorry about your lamp. I'm always knocking something over. I always worry about my red wine...LOL!!

I need one of those portable photo studios!

Birgit said...

I am bananas for your card:)) Sorry I could not help myself. It is really sweet and that it is beside your baby's beautiful smile. It is like the card made your baby's day! If you have a light store near you, they should have a bulb. Often places like Home Depot may but if it is special better to go to a lighting store

So cute!! Love the little monkey! I don't know where to get the replacement bulbs - I've actually been thinking about that recently since I have a bad feeling one of mine will burn out one day (or I'll do like you did and knock it over!) and not have a replacement!

Rose said...

Love this one! It reminds me of the Father's Day card you made my dad! :) Which, by the way, he still has displayed on the fridge. And I think it's worth mentioning that there are only 4 things on the fridge: a pic of me, a pic of my sister, a pic of my little sugar-pie, and YOUR card! :)

He's cute!

I also broke one of the lights for my lightbox studio! Maybe together we can team up and get a good photo! LOL I also use my Ott light if I don't have good daylight. Here in So. CA. I almost always get good daylight. But sometimes...I have to use the Ott.

Have you tried an Electrical supplier (someone who supplies electrical items to electricans in Australia we have Haymans, Lawrence & Hanson) for your bulb?
