Monkey Love


Many of you know I have no great love for monkeys, and because of that I have received many monkey cards and photos from "thoughtful stampers". Boy, there are times when I really feel the love. Julee (Verve) has really enjoyed razzing me about this latest release too. She just had to design a monkey set called Love Monkey....okay....here's where I need ya'll to keep a secret. I really do think this little guy is just the cutest!! I mean, shoot, he's so chubby with a crooked little grin. Who wouldn't love this guy? Even a monkey challenged stamper such as I can't resist him. This was actually the first card I made with the newest released images. Really! And I paired him up with the Be Mine Plain Jane because I thought it would be cute to have him sitting on the arrow. Now the sentiment is actually on top of the arrow, so I colored the arrow only, with a black SU! marker, stamped it, then colored the sentiment and layered it beneath. Since the images are clear, it was easy as pie. Finally, I added a sweet little heart from the Thankful Accents set released last month.

Hope you had a nice weekend. I'm getting ready to head to CHA on Saturday!! Woot! Can't wait!
Happy Stamping ya'll!!

For someone who hates monkeys, you sure hang out with them all the time! I think you are telling a story about not liking monkeys! That is my theory about you and your monkeys.

By the way, the card is precious!
