Sorry, I couldn't resist. I can see my girls doing the face palm and hear the groans. I haven't been feeling very creative lately, but over the weekend two very talented friends inspired me. Since we are in the midst of the Dotty For You promotion, I decided to make some dotty cards. I created a sweet family of owls and an adorable sock monkey (hence the corny post title).
How cute are these owls? They make me smile every time I look at them. My friend Lisa made an owl card using the Elemental Paper Pack and the Wild Card Cricut cartridge. I own that cartridge and knew as soon as I saw her owl that I needed to make some of my own. Check out Lisa's Blog when you get a chance. You won't be disappointed.
Ahhh, nostalgia. Can you say Sock Monkey without smiling? My mentor and up-line, Mary, designed a great sock monkey card using the Dotty For You papers and the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge. I had a recipient in mind for this card before I even put it together. Order the Dotty For You paper pack and I will send you the instructions to make your own sock monkey card. I'm thinking about making a miniature version of him to use as an embellishment on a layout too.
Sock Monkey's arms and legs fold in so he will fit in the envelope. Mary said opening the sock monkey card is like unwrapping a hug. Sweet! But, wait, there's more...
He comes complete with tail. Can you say Awwwww?
