Put on your Sunglasses

It is not often you will see me using super bright colors. That is a little ironic since when I first starting stamping over 5 years ago, the first set of ink, paper and embellishments I purchased from Stampin Up was bold brights. I remember those "stamping" days quite well. I had to put stamping in quotes because really... what I was doing was NOT stamping. LOL I would throw down some ink (and maybe a few fingerprints) and call it a card! ICK! *shudder* LOL

I pulled out the bright colors and my new sock monkey set to make a birthday gift for a friend of mine. She loves bright colors and I aim to please so... put on your sunglasses. :) This card is full of irony because never in a million years would I have thought I wanted a sock monkey set, but I saw it... it called my name and the rest is history. I think he's pretty cute! :)

I plan to put some gifties in the tin for her. I hope she likes it.

I hope you all are having a wonderful day and I hope you didn't get a sunburn after viewing this set. :)

  4. So cute! I was on the fence with this one but you've sold me on! You made him look cute!! Great gift set!

  5. That sock monkey is really really cute, and I LOVE the colors. I am really partial to brights :)

    Nice job!

  8. I CANNOT believe you made that monkey CUTE! - Mary R.

  9. I did not like the sock monkey at all and didn't 'get' why others were raving about him. BUT your set is so cute, I think I'm changing my mind about getting him. rofl Wonderful card/gift set. Your friend is lucky!
