Pink Stamper Wednesday Challenge…

Robyn, at My Pink Stamper, has challenged us today to make something school related.

I totally HEART this sock monkey stamp set from Stampin’ Up, so I used that. 😀
My card says, “No more monkey business….” on the outside and “it’s time to get ready for school” on the inside!!
I had a great time making this card, but it was difficult to come up with a unique idea that fit my style. School and acting like a monkey fit my personality. LOL…JK, I did get my degree in Education…but I’m a stay at home mom…so…decide my degree of monkeyness from that.  😉

Here’s my, “No more monkey business,

it’s time to get ready for school” card:

Recipe for Monkey Business card:

Stampin’ Up: Sock Monkey

Copic Markers: E00, Y08, E33, E37

Stampin’ Up: Chocolate Chip Ink & Paper

PaperTrey Ink.com: New Leaf paper

Cuttlebug: Tiny Bubbles folder

Ribbon I found at Hobby Lobby

Cricut Cartridge: My Community (for the clock)

I have no idea who the maker of the patterned paper is.  I bought it off Etsy.

I just made up the sentiment, printed it onto cardstock and cut it to size.

FUN!!  That was sort of hard though…but FUN!!

  1. I love your card! I still can’t believe school is here so soon! After seeing your card, now I for sure want the “My Community” cartridge! Good Job!!:)

    1. LOL!! You probably don’t need “My Community”, but when has that ever stopped a Cricut lover before? Oddly, it’s full of nursery rhyme images. Strange, because I KNOW the Old Lady who lives in a Shoe does NOT have a house in my community!! 😀 Seriously, I pulled out that cart and forced myself to use it. I just bought it a few days ago and was slapping myself in the head trying to figure out what I must have been thinking when I bought it. Now I’m going to force myself to do some sort of nursery rhyme book for my 2 yr old nephew. Crazy!!

      And… Thank you! 🙂

  2. Cute card. It is time for those little monkey’s to get back to work. 🙂

    1. Yes, all little monkeys please report to the bus stop! 😉
