Coffee of the Day - French Vanilla
This is one of the rare, few monkey cards you will ever ever see on my blog. they scare the ever lovin' crap out of me. and this one was one of the worst! ack! the card took almost 4 days to complete because I kept getting freaked out while painting that fella. yep. I can take on spiders and snakes with no problem whatsoever, but do NOT EVER get me near primates of any kind.
so of course, my youngest son has wanted one as a pet for ages..... sigh...and his birthday is next week. so being the most excellent, loving mom that I am, I cast my fears aside (not really!), and made him a monkey card. it took many texts to hubby to get me through it, but it is finished. now to just get it in the mail on Monday along with his gift. phew. that is DONE! ;)
I remembered I had this image in my files from Rick St. Dennis when I was making the Autumn Bear card last week. that man has got a ton of talent! you can find just about anything and everything in his digital art store - from zombies to angels to monkeys to art deco styled glamorized women.
papers are from the Basic Grey Life of the Party collection and little flower is Petaloo. monkey image was fussy cut, and die behind it is by Spellbinders. vintage buttons, ticket, grosgrain ribbon, and washi tape are from my stash. I added some little border dots with a marker, spica glitter pen accents to the tassel on the hat, and homemade enamel dots to complete the card.
I sure hope he enjoys the only monkey card he will probably ever get from me. grins!
enjoy your day!
