Sock monkey- you funky monkey

My dog has a new "baby" all the time, you know the stuffed animal that you purchase to replace the one she's ripped apart in love? She has this monkey & flings it around so I have this song I sing to her (in the style of that Brass monkey song?). Anyways, the SU Sock Monkey set is awesome (if you didn't get what I was getting around to). I scraplifted from toddianni723 over on splitcoaststampers. Her version was very similar but Halloween themed. I used K&Company designer paper & a little bit of stickles on the cupcake. I really like this idea of using portions of the stamps! I started out trying to paper-piece a monkey & it was too much of a pain. I wouldn't say I copied (ok I did) but I had to make the monkey "peeking" over the edge. I haven't made anything lately & I'm so proud of this. I currently only have 1 comment for my card but "cotdsffs" said it is her favorite out of all 516 cards posted. Yeah!
