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!!
