Monkey Suits

So I had this pretty floral card all pictured in my head for Saturday's Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge {Don Cherry's Jackets} 263, when this monkey and sentiment from Hambo Stamps popped into my head.

Don Cherry has no lack of self-esteem and is a pretty confident guy to wear all those "monkey suits"!!

So my little monkey decided to make an appearance today, in honor of ALL the Don Cherry jackets --
but mostly the red velvet one HERE.

I stamped my image on three inchies (Inchie Arts) and then again on PTI White and cut him out. The background is a Tim Holtz embossing folder.

Thanks for looking! Have a GREAT day!

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response .

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time
