Simon Monkey’s Around

I was so excited to get my latest bundle of ‘luv’ from Heidi at Simon Says Stamp. She set me up with the Whiff of Joy and Magnolia cuties I posted yesterday and this adorable set, Cool Monkey and Baby Love, exclusive to her store.
I can’t wait to play with it some more since I only used one image on my card. I thought Cool Monkey (with lips – you can customize the expression with the different mouth options in the set) would be cute with the sentiment from My Favorite Things. Since buttons were the challenge at Wacky Wednesday, I used them to create the ‘scallop edge’ from the sketch. If you have time, join in Sketch 4 You Try’s challenge and you could win $100 in Just Rite products. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).

Inspiration Wacky Wednesday #22 ~ Buttons Holey moley, there are 20 buttons on this baby, plus another 2 on the inside. 365 Cards Day 130 ~ That Tickles Me (use humor) My Creation Image Detail My monkey has lots of Spica accents for a bit of glitz. I added Diamond Glaze to her eyes and lips for some dimension.

  2. Beautiful love that monkey. Thank's for playing at 2S4Y.

  3. You did a great job on both these challenges; the use of the colors came out great! Really like the way you used similar PP but with the diff colors. Adding those buttons was such a FUN touch!
