Sue used the Cuttlekid monkey die - isn't it to die for?? And I love that she put the same flower brad behind her monkey's ear that I used on my card!My challenge inspired Karen to drive all over the Maine coast looking for a monkey stamp - which makes me feel both bad and cool all at the same time. :-) She isn't thrilled with what she finally came up with, but I think it's completely adorable!!Anita's daugther Katie didn't have a monkey stamp to use either, but rather than shopping she chose to be inspired by the colors and used other animals instead. Remember there are no rules to inspiration challenges - whatever YOU find inspiring is what you should go with! Super cute cards Katie!Jenn also didn't have any monkey stamps, but improvised with stickers and other embellishments, and the results are super duper cute!!Katie's card is so sweet with the cute monkey and all the wonderful texture and buttons. I also love the sentiment she used, because that's exactly how I feel both about my sweet baby girl, and also about all of you who actually play this challenge!Kathryn's monkey card is so stinkin' cute it hurts. LOL Ok nothing really hurts, but sometimes I just run out of things to say about these cards - I can only think of so many ways to say cute, sweet or adorable... :-) Love your card Kathryn!And though it was a very tough call, this week my favorite card has to be Monica's!! For one thing, she's my Hambo boss and I need to throw her a bone every now and then so she'll continue to send me free stamps. HA! Kidding of course, I love her card because it's absolutely adorable!! And super creative - she used a fingerprint stamp to make her little monkeys! I think the funny lips on the last monkey is what I love most. Plus she really captured the "silly" aspect of Courtney's little shirt. Yay Monica! I'll put a little goodie in the mail to you. (but please do not be too eager to get it, I'm two challenges behind now on mailing out goodies, not to mention a whole stack of RAKs... sigh...) :-)Thanks everyone for playing this week!! And thanks to the rest of you for stopping by today!!
