Monkey, Monkey, Monkey

don't you love the sock monkey charm - killer, huh?
It's the weekend, so let's get on with the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge.

If you are one of the few people who saw the Broadway play "the Drowsy Chaperon" then you know the song with the "...monkey, monkey, monkey..." lyrics.   It's a very silly song and whenever I hear it I get a giggle.

I took my daughter to see this show.  One of the souvenirs they were selling was a sock monkey.  Guess who had to have one?  I'll give you three trys... Too bad it's packed away or I'd take a picture of it with the card.  Well there'll be more sock monkey cards in my future, after the hopefully last in a long time move, I'll be sure to get it into a photo for you all.

So it's Friday, the weekend's here, whatcha gonna do?  I hope you're going to join us at Stampin' For the Weekend and make a card for our challenge.  It's a simple color combo with bling.  Make a lemon and lime card and add some bling.  Adding bling should be part of every card!  Even masculine cards can have bling.   This was made for a little boy and I'm sure he's going to love pulling each and every piece of bling off.  Boys, go figure...

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Sock Monkey"
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - Basic Grey "Origins"; Wausau "Terra Green" cs for mats; MFT "Banana Split" cs for base
and mats
miscellaneous- copics; brads; sewing machine; charm (from Oriental Trading); nesties circle and inverted scalloped circle; rick rack

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll come back again (if you like the charm come back tomorrow).  Now go get busy making a card for the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge #10 to make a yellow and green card with bling.  Stop by the SFTW blog for some more inspiration.  The design team has been busy making samples to get you psyched up.
