Monkey-ing Around!

He he he! Don't worry I'm keeping it clean here! We are PG-13 after all! LOL! I love this monkey stamp too! I just love that little monkey! I made this one from my own design as the little guy looked like he needed a place to hang out! I think I have a "thing" for the monkeys because monkeys always make me think of my son! He loves monkeys so much he even had one (proud Momma moment here - not!) tattooed on the inside of his arm! He's going to hate me for this but, well, he even slept with an orangutan that my Mom got him for YEARS! We made it clothes and a back pack and for a stuffed monkey it lived a pretty good life! That is until it had to go live where the toys are hidden that I didn't want to get given away! LOL! Anywhooooo..... I made this card using one of the many stamps I got from Mandy at Limelight Papercrafts (I think I love her shop almost as much as the monkeys!)




She also has some great new ones in for winter! I am already stalking my mailman for "Changito Cocoa". I also got "Changito Pirates" as a sympathy gift for myself last week when I pulled my IT band! LOL! Hey if I'm going to limp so is Changito! So I ordered them and fingers crossed they'll be here tomorrow! LOL! I'll have some more fun monkey stuff soon as my son's birthday, he's turning 21! I don't know how that's possible since I'm still 29.....! LOL! Anyway, being that he's in the Navy, loves monkeys he totally needs a Changito the Pirate themed birthday - right?! He's so going to "hate" me! LOL! Good thing he doesn't read my blog...that I know of! LOL!

Well, don't go away thinking I'm bananas! LOL! Everyone has to love something right?! LOL! Remember more fun monkey stuff coming!!

Until next time....

WOW... This is an AWESOME card. Thx for stopping by my blog. You asked about the lattice card and how I did the work... Actually, the lattice was a predesigned card for Pazzles so the work was done for me... I just added the pattern paper and other embellies...

Thx for stopping by...

BTW, I love your designs... I'll be visiting again soon...
