Monkey Business

Hi there, I just love this monkey template. He's a new one by Lasting Impressions. On the template, he's not hanging upside down. He's hanging from his arms. You can see it here. I then saw a card on Laura's blog that I thought was so cute, with a monkey hanging by it's legs. So I thought, I can change this monkey to hang by it's legs too! I embossed each part of his body separately and then put him together to look like he's hanging from his legs. Then I used another template for the birthday gift and then tried to make it look like he was holding the gift.

Hope you are having a great weekend. You all know I am a big hockey fan. Well, my team the Capitals didn't make it very far in the playoffs this year, so now I am obsessing over the Capitals minor league team. I am off to Hershey, PA for a day trip today to watch the Hershey Bears play in Game 2 of 7 of the Calder Cup finals. Then in a few days, I am traveling to TX to watch the Hershey Bears take on their opponent the TX Stars for Games 4 and 5. I am looking forward to getting away, even if it's for a short time!

Wow Heidi, Love that monkey card. LOVE how he's hanging from his legs and adore how you've placed the present. You are something else! Enjoy your time away and your Hershey Bears. Hopefully they will do well! And I'm sorry about the Capitals.

Love your card as I always do!
