Monkeying Around – Now I’m Late!

So I made a monkey card the other day – and when I did I stamped 2 monkeys but only used one!

Using the 2nd monkey I made a Masculine/For a Guy card!

~ Belated Birthday Wishes Monkey card ~


I made this cute and fun square card by using my Squares dies from MFT I ended up cutting 3 sizes using papers in my scrap file – Love it when I can do that! Ended up with 5 layers on this card.

I stamped the monkey from Smoocheroos stamp set with Versafine black ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. Colored him in with my “Ziggy“s and put him on with foam mounted tape.

My sentiment was also stamped in black and embossed, it is from the Word Salad set from Paper Smooches!

~ This card wants to “Monkey” Around in the following challenges ~

This sketch was perfect for my square card – I followed it and just put my center square on my card a little skiwampus! ( I spelled that the way it sounds – probably isn’t right – oh, well)

    Another cute monkey card! Your card design reminds me of a window with four panes of glass. A great background idea for your sweet monkey.
