invasion of the monkeys

I made this card for my niece Kaitlyn. I wasn't able to go to her party as it was the same weekend as CKC and I had already scheduled and paid for my classes before we were invited to her party. My kids had a blast though!

Don't you think sock monkeys are the cutest? I love sock monkeys! I can't remember ever having one or knowing anyone who made them. In fact, I can't ever remember seeing one in person... how sad is that!! Jody made a few that she posted on her blog and really love what she did with them. This one and this one really inspired me to try piecing them. This was my first attempt. I made the scallop with my SU slit punch.

Recipe:
dsp, basic black and whisper white card stock from Stampin' Up
Card base from DCWV
Copic marker and Stampin Up basic black ink pad

adorable :) my god mother made me a sock monkey when i was 6 months old. he went with me to college, grad school and the hospital when both my kids were born. i might have left him at home for my honeymoon ... can't remember! i had to have this set and am afraid friends and family might get sick of him! i won't though!
