Monkey see... Monkey do ANOTHER challenge!

Yipee! It's Friday, babies! Are you ready to ENJOY your weekend!?! I sure hope so... I'm sliding across the plate with a close-to-the-wire offering for this week's Card Patterns Challenge AND playing some more with My Cute Stamps - CIRCUS {because they are soooo cute!} ANIMALS!



Ohhhh, the cuteness of this little monkey! I just turned this card into a celebration-o-the-monkey! AND some of his fun accessories! AND... {alert the media} I parted with some COSMO CRICKET paper! {I know... will you HOLD me? It's hard to .. let go..*sniffle} But doesn't monkey and some strips of "Mr. Campy" play nice together!?!

Here's the ultra-enjoyable sketch design from the fine folks at Card Patterns! A personal "side" challenge for me was to NOT do something western with this design! {I have a little addiction to all things western, ESPECIALLY when I sees me some stars!} Sometimes it's about GROWTH, and getting out of our {Western FESTOONED} box!.... Look Mom, I'm growing up.. and playing with... uh, ur..
M O N K E Y S!



So, adorable friends-o-blogland! I'm going to attempt to NOT be too wordy and let you go! It is with such gratitude that I acknowledge HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE you stopping by my happy little blogging place! Have a fabulous, lovely and ENJOYABLE weekend, and by all means: do some monkeying around in your spare time! You deserve it!

Bye now!

Supplies:

C/S - Stampin' Up!
D/P - Cosmo Cricket
Stamps - My Cute Stamps

Oh my goodness, you're on a roll! I fully intended to get my CPS challenge done tonight, but alas, I am not a night owl.

I love how you made the patterned paper! Super cute.

Have a lovely weekend!

OH Elise that little monkey is way too cute - I think it's the cutest one I have seen and I really LOVE how you made that strip with all the cute images and the colours you have used are perfect. FAB work with the CP sketch.

Dear E,
I love your little monkey card. Have a great weekend. I did get to see my grandsons take a swim lesson in Petaluma despite the chilly weather. A great photo op.I do love your blog. Thank you for setting me up. Oh, I ordered the pop-up Christmas tree and ornaments from S.U. so you will have to come play. They shipped today.

Oh NOOOOOOOO! Now I NEED a chunk of THAT monkey paper!! And I have no monkey stamp to do it with. Tell, you what... I will counsel you on the letting go of a bit of mr campy if I can have a chunky of your monkey paper! And I CANNOT believe you resisted the sketch stars and stayed away from western....that is like waving a red flag in front of a bull! You have supreme self control! ha ha! THIS card blows my mind and I am so glad you shared it!

to the big E; I know red and green are complimentary colors but that soft green and the darker richer orange are to die for!! I have a couple of days off now and I have got to get this monkey butt in the studio and see if I can produce a smidgin of the magic you have been whippin up! The Oz
