Owl be a Monkey's Uncle...

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?
