I've just felt like Monkeying Around lately, so I decided to share some cards using Monkeys.

For my first card I used some bright card stock, a little stitching and some stickers by Pebbles to create this fun card which I saw in one of my older Paper Crafts magazines.

Supplies used: card stock - white, brown, yellow green; pattern paper strip from my scrap stash; stickers - Zoo by Pebbles; rub on alphabet - Simply Sweet by Doodlebug; sewing machine; Pop Dots

For my second card I used a cloud background paper by Reminisce, along with some cuts from Silhouette Studio to create this card which I will be donating to Operation Write Home.

Supplies used: card stock - white, 3 shades of brown, black, tan, 2 shades of green; patterned paper - Cloud Puff by Reminisce; fringe scissors - Martha Stewart; google eyes - Michael's; alphabet rub ons - Simply Sweet by Doodlebug; Pop Dots.
