Sock Monkey in the House!

Oh that Sock Monkey! He's everywhere! And he's so cute! This lil' fella brings back memories for lots of people. Are you one of them? I never had one myself, but now I think maybe I should have because he's so much fun! lol! Anyway, I used to always see him on Carol Duvall's show so I feel like I know him already! LOL!

Now we can all have our Sock Monkeys! This new stamp set is in the recently-arrived Stampin' Up! Fall/Winter Idea Book and Catalog and is such fun! The first card on the right I received from my friend Jann McCollom as a swap at Convention. Jann used the fabulous Bella Rose Designer Paper with new In Colors of Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette, with just a touch of the Kiwi Kiss and Close to Cocoa. The monkey's suit and the heart are both paper-pieced with the Bella Rose paper; the polka dot paper is also from this set. Isn't he cute?

Now the lil' fella on the left with all the bananas is a clever "head shot" layered on a scallop punch and the Five Petal Flower punch cut into leaves. Jill George used a combination of Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun and white with just a touch of green. I received this swap at Convention also. What a cool variation of the Sock Monkey cards!

I'll have more Sock Monkeys for you another day! Thanks for dropping by!

Happy Stampin'!
