Sock Monkey Birthday

This set is one of my favorites from the 2008-2009 Fall/Winter Stampin'Up catalogue- who can resist that cute mug- I am always calling my kids little monkeys so had to have the set- made this little card for my swap for convention- stamp hat - mask and then the Sock Monkey on very vanilla CS in choc chip ink then mask the cheek, legs and butt and stamp again with canvas background stamp- here's the hardest part for those of us who flunked scissors 101 in kindergarten- cut the monkey out - and color in the hat and butt with pumpkin and rose red and bordering blue- stamp balloons on pacific blue, Baja blue and ridinghood red CS and again- cut out- -mount monkey on tangerine CS and balloons with dimensionals and draw lines of the balloon with black marker- sharp end- stamp cumcakes all over on 8 1/2 x 11 summer sun CS folded in half with tangerine ink and stamp just for you in black ink and punch out with word window punch- Voila the card is finished!
