Monkey Thoughts

I just love that sentiment! So cute! Another CC Designs monkey to share (the last one for awhile, I promise!). This is the second monkey in the Monkey Love stamp set.

I stamped my image and colored it with copic markers before cutting it out using a nestability die. I embossed the edges of the rectangle and the circle for the sentiment. I think that is one of my favorite parts of the nestability dies. I love the little extra the embossing adds. The rest is pretty straight forward.

Tomorrow, I should have some Papertrey stuff to share. I still need to finish some things up and take photos.

Have a great day!

Thanks for the blog visit, Niki. ;) I love your work and this monkey card is adorable (I'm not tired of seeing monkeys at all, so keep 'em coming if you want -lol)! With those colors, it would make a great 'guy' card.
