Hangin' Here just to say "HI"!

All little boys I've been around enjoy acting like little monkeys.  My brother is now 70 and I can remember as if it was just yesterday that he was acting like a monkey.  When I remind him of the 'good ole days', he'll give me a monkey face and sound.  He still makes me laugh.

Anyhow, Cut It Up Challenge #183 with the theme wood(s) brought back old memories which inspired me to build this card, but it will go to my grandson....not my brother.LOL  (However, I have sent him plenty of monkey cards..haha)  Now you know my secret, unless it is a seasonal card, past memories inspire my cards 90% of the time.

Every bit of this card was made using die cuts.  I bought the monkey set from Aliexpress, but when I went to get a link for my blog, the page was gone.

  1. Oh, dear, I do love that monkey with his silly face and googly eyes! Too cute, Cely. Great clouds and I love the story about your brother and his childhood "monkeyshines."

  2. Probably one of the cutest monkey I've ever seen. Love the googly eyes you put on him. [Bunny]``

  3. This die is so cute. Your card is just darling. Love to see you creating again.

  4. I love that you get your inspiration from your own life! This monkey card is just too cute. The google eyes puts it over-the-top! :)

    Thanks for playing with us at Cut it Up for our Into the Woods challenge!


  5. He is so sweet and the eyes make him even more cute! Your clouds look so fluffy. And I can tell you it's not just boys, my Bit has always acted like a little monkey - and I have made her plenty of monkey cards as well.

  6. That's a pretty funny monkey for sure! Bet your brother loved it! ♥ Sue Kment
