Monkeys... From Socks..

Okay. I know that her eye is wonky-looking. It's a defect in the stamp and I am sending her to the manufacturer Monday for replacement. But I couldn't just stamp her and NOT color her. I desperately need some more colors for skin, to make it less washed out. And another series of browns would add some depth as well. BUT THIS STAMP. So adorable. I cannot get over it. I completely love sock monkeys, if for no reason other than their whimsy, which I strongly insist that they possess. The fact that this stamp exists is the most wonderful thing in the craft world that I have experienced thus far. I don't care how ridiculously extreme that may be to say.. it's true for me! ;)  As soon as her stand-in with both eyes in-tact is in my paws, I will commence the creation of many cards. And I have just the park bench to sit her on, too!

It's been a good day! I exercised my body, then I exercised my Copics, popdots, stamps, rhinestones, cardstock, and paper trimmer! Just a four-pack of cute Birthday Cards for today. Enjoy!
