Monkey Business!



I bought the new SU Sock Monkey set as soon as we could. I have to admit I am not much of a "monkey lover", but I always did like the sock monkey's! I made a girlie monky and one for a boy. Both were paper peiced, the boy monkey I used some of the brown textured "core" paper and sanded it, giving it the look of a "real" sock monkey.

The sentiment "You're so sweet" on the girlie monkey card is from my new set I purchased from Gina K Designs , it was in the diabetes set.

Both cards are adorable! I haven't seen a girlie monkey made with this set yet and this one is just too cute!

These are very cool monkey cards! I remember that SU set that you used in your next card too--one of my first ones!
