A Monkey In Boxer Shorts



What could be better? giggles

Hello friends! I pulled this sweet little monkey out of a huge folder of images that I have.  I used to be involved in a large on-line paper crafting group.  One of the neat things the group did was image swapping. Therefore, I do not own this stamp so I can't tell you the name of the image.  If any of you know the name or know who makes it I would love for you to share and I will edit my post to include the information - and then go buy it! LOL because I really do love a monkey in boxer shorts!!  but then again... who wouldn't!: )



The person who gave me this image stamped it off on a small 4.25 x 2.75" piece of paper which limits what you can do with it on a card.  I found this great sketch on CAS(e) This Sketch challenge blog and decided to fussy cut the little guy out.  Note to self: cut the tail out first so you have something to hold on to for that teeny little thing : )



Monkey lovers around here can really use a pick me up after the huge dump of snow we received yesterday! It was better than predicted but we still got over 15" of the white stuff.  These are the days I am blessed to work at home so I can enjoy the beauty from inside where I am safe and warm.

I hope you are safe and warm and getting inky in your part of the world today.  ((Hugs))

15" of snow - my boys would be jumping for joy! They cannot wait to get on their skis!!! We will likely get on our cross-country skis this weekend as there is some snow outside of town, but in town we have only a dusting so far. It has been cold enough though, could happen anytime!

Your monkey in boxers is truly adorable and what a fun pick-me-up he would be in the mailbox!!!

Stay warm and cozy! Perhaps an extra cuppa is in order!
Hugs,
Shanna :)

Had a good laugh when your post title popped up in my right sidebar. If he isn't the cutest little thing ever, I don't know what! Your coloring is pretty darn amazing too! And nope, no snow for us yet. We're pretty far south with a big weather moderator just to our east (Lake Michigan). They're predicting a dusting for us on Saturday, just in time for our Scrap & Stamp event at church...hate taking my stuff out in "weather!!!" Anyway...love this very sweet card. Nice texture, fun image, and lots of lovely white space! Have a great week. Bev

This is super adorable! Definitely made me giggle when I saw it.

But I'm distracted by the 15 inches of snow you got. I don't know where you live but I sure hope whatever storm you got is not headed my way. Me and snow are sworn enemies! LOL!

Kelly Latevola said...

Awww what a cute little monkey!
Wow, 15" of snow in one day! We couldn't cope with that in Northern Ireland, if we get more than a couple of inches all the roads are closed and everyone goes into panic mode LOL

I am so amazed and so pleased at how completely adorable this little guy is!! What a cleverly done card with fun details to it - such as the circle embossed paper and the awesome way you have colored your image! So impressed and just pleased as punch that I got to see this cute guy and have my day made!!!
