Bananas In Pyjamas

 All together now....let's sing...

Bananas in pyjamas are coming down the stairs,
Bananas in pyjamas are coming down in pairs,
Bananas in pyjamas are chasing teddy bears,
'cos on Tuesdays they all try to catch them unawares!

Sorry, I couldn't resist that.
As you may have guessed, I was asked to make two Bananas in Pyjamas cards for three year old twin boys!!!
What was I to do....I had no idea.  So I googled and came up with some images.  At first I thought I could colour B1 and B2 coming down a set of stairs.   Mmmmm well I abandoned that idea pretty quickly.  Then I had another idea while doing the preparation for this card by Connie Collins.
So instead of the rainbow zig zag, I alternated Summer Sun (retired), Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point zig zag trim on to white card stock.  I then layered that onto Summer Sun, then Pacific Point and the base is Whisper White.
The Summer Sun I found went perfectly with the two Banana images I printed out from the computer.
The 'three' on the sentiment has been paper pieced.  I tried colouring the three in with a Pacific Point marker and that effort went in the bin.  It looked dreadful.
I cut the four Bananas out and placed them either side of the sentiment, of course, remembering to have one B1 and one B2 on each card.
So there you are.....two Bananas in Pyjamas cards for three year old twin boys.  Done.
I have to say that the lady who ordered them is absolutely stoked with the results.  She was just so my efforts haven't been in vain. lol
Hope you like them too.

I'm busy preparing cards to go away to craft camp with next weekend.  Very excited...I always love craft camps.  lol
Enjoy your day everyone.
