Sock Monkey Santa

Hello!  I'm back again with a new sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  We have a fun sponsor this week; one of my favorites...Bugaboo!

As I was looking through my images, I came across this fun monkey and just had to use him!  It's no secret that I love monkey images...and sock monkeys too...so this was a fun card to make.  The monkey is colored with pencils and I've added some glitter to his Santa hat and the stripes on the candy cane.  I paired the image with some fun and colorful DP and embellished simply with twill.

Image: Bugaboo Digital Stamps
Ink: Printer, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: G.P. 110, PTI Stamper's Select and Pure Poppy, Doodlebug DP
Embellies: PTI Pure Poppy Twill, Martha Stewart Carrara Marble and Crystal Fine Glitters
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, EK Success 3D Dots

You can check out the sketch, challenge details and the DT's creations here.  Why not give the sketch a try?

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

I had to smile when I saw your card. I've not been a big fan of the sock monkey dolls, but that image and your delightful card just may make me reconsider. Well done.

You're the only person I know that can make Sock Monkey adorable. They've scared the bejeezers out of me since I was a kid. Crazy! I know.

I love the bright colors, what fun paper!
