Sock Monkey

A little while ago I won some free digi stamps from Meljen Designs and one of them was the cutest little sock monkey.  So today I decided he needed an outing so here he or she is on a couple of cards.  This one was inspired by challenges at:
Card Patterns - sketch #83 (I flipped this on 90 degrees)
Stamp something - fall colours
Stamptacular - season's change
My time to craft - looks like Autumn
Tuesday taggers - here comes Autumn

Supplies used
Digi stamp - Meljens
Stamp - PTI - faux ribbon
Paper - Scrap-a-gogo greeting kit
Copic Ciaos used for sock monkey:
Monkey - E31, E33, E35, E37
Monkey face - E00, E02
Hat - BG10, BG15, E000

This card was inspired by challenged at:
Cupcake craft challenges - pink and brown
A spoonful of sugar - spots and stripes (the stripes are in the corrugated card)
Papercutz - little critter

 Supplies used
Digi stamp - Meljens
Stamp - PTI - fancy flourishes
Corrugated card - inspire me papers
Paper - October Afternoon
Sticker - Scrap-a-gogo greeting kit
Felt flowers - making memories and Marianne designs die cuts
Copic Ciaos used for sock monkey:
Monkey - E31, E33, E35, E37
Monkey face - E00, E02, RV10
Hat - RV10, RV13, RV21
Outline - W1

So on a Wednesday evening this little monkey has made me a happy monkey.  Really I should have been getting ready for some demos, but I'm waiting for a delivery from the office. This weekend I'm all over the place, demonstrating for Crafter's Companion:
Friday - The Craft Shop UK Stalybridge
Saturday - Cadbury Garden & Leisure, Nr Bristol
Sunday - Melbicks Garden & Leisure, Nr Birmingham
Monday - Inspirations by Cardcraft Plus, Nr Preston
