Monkey Love

How much fun is this photo!  You've got a sock monkey, a pail full of Tootsie Pops (and in my favorite flavors), a big old banner, and a mile high pile of cupcakes!  Wowsers, if you can't find inspiration for Cupcake Inspirations challenge #148 from this photo you better have somebody check your pulse. 

Now if the fantastic photo isn't enough to get you excited how about the sponsor - it's Bugaboo Stamps and they're offering a prize of 7 digital images.  Double Wowsers! 

Bugaboo let the sweeties pick an image to use so you have to check out the blog to see how the team was inspired.  I think this week the sweeties have outdone themselves.

My card features "Birthday Monkey - Cupcake".    If you like cupcake images there's a large selection of images featuring cupcakes.  Would you be surprised to know that I have quite a few of the cupcake images in my stash?  No, I didn't think so.    
Don't forget the inside, even doing something simple that's just a reflection of the card's face. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Bugaboo Stamps "Birthday Monkey - Cupcake"
ink - hp printer
paper - Stampin' Up "Crumb Cake" and "Poppy Parade" cs; Recollections "Red Dots" and "Monkeying Around" dp
miscellaneus - copics; stickles; mini brads; liquid pearls; ribbons; baker's twine; monkey charm; sewing machine; Spellbinder's circle and inverted scalloped circle dies
