...on the Sock Monkey!
I truly don't understand the folks who don't like this adorable little dude. Are you one of them? If so, I'm not judging you. I just don't get it. Would you explain what there is not to love about him? He's so cute! Now Changito? I get not liking him. I've see some cute cards made with Changito, but he leaves me cold. In fact, when I think about the monkey stamps out in the stamping world, it makes me want to go out on this limb: Sock Monkey is my all-time-favorite monkey stamp! No. I'm going to take it even farther: Sock Monkey was my favorite Stampin' Up! set of all of 2008!!! In fact, the only SU! set I like more than Sock Monkey? The late, great Stampin' Fun for Everyone. Mmmm-hmmm. There. I said it. I meant it. I'm here to represent it and I will! (I think that was a cheer of some sort from when I was in elementary school, but I'm not quite sure.)
Anywho, this particular version of my BELOVED Sock Monkey was created for the current color challenge, to use Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy & Kraft, and I slightly modified Julee's current Mojo Monday sketch. My sweet lil primate was paper pieced, then CHF's Distressed Grid Scrapblock was inked in Not Quite Navy Ink and stamped onto Baja Breeze. I ran the NQN layer through the Cuttlebug with the swiss dots embossing folder. The sentiment is from MFT's Twisted Sentiments set.
It's late, so I'm going to hit the hay. Good night, Sock Monkey! I love you!
