A little Monkey Business...


I was going through my card stash the other day, and I have noticed that I make a TON of love cards... ask my hubby how many he's received over the years ;)  
{to be read as:  not many... why else would they still be in my stash :)}

So this time, how about a "like" card?   It's kinda like love, right... what you're really trying to say is:  I love you, but I just don't want to say it out loud yet ;)



How cute are these monkeys?  Pretty darn... I know.  The first guy is stamped right on the white base along with all of the tree branches, but the other two dudes are cut out... oh yes... yes... they... are.  Are your fingers spasming just thinking about it?!


But the effect is great.  Having the two guys cut out allowed me to arrange them willy-nilly until I liked 'em.  Willy-nilly should not to be confused with Milli Vanilli... you 80's fans know what I'm talkin' 'bout :)



Once again I used my Prismacolors with mineral oil... it really worked great on getting dimension on their faces.  The "Oooo, Oooo, Oooo" (monkey-speak) was stamped with TAC's Mini-bet, and the sentiment within the sponged circle is from Tag Tidbits.  The monkeys & branch are from Monkey Business, and the patterned paper is Mulberry Meadow (sadly, retired).


What's cool about this set, is that you can dress the monkeys... paper doll style.  Overalls, shorts... there are even flip-flops!  Cute cute stuff.


What do you think?

Very cute! It reminds me of a barrel of monkeys game when they are pulled up and out.
