Poor Wee Monkey

I picked up some great 'closing the shop' bargains from Pollycraft a while back, including this adorable little sick monkey. Immediately I thought, "Poor Wee Monkey" and made a sentiment accordingly. Of course the inside verse follows along and I will give you both at the end of this post. And no worries - you can still buy Pollycraft stamps over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps. They didn't want to see Pollycraft stamps disappear either.

I designed this card for 4 different challenges:

2 Peas in a Pod - Red, white & blue. It's Brenda's very first challenge and she has a very generous prize. How about giving a newbie some paper crafter love and support? Brenda would love more followers on her blog too.

Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Bingo. I chose Stickles, Free Space & Die Cuts

Card Swaps - Recipe Challenge. Jane's challenge is to use multiples of 3. I used 3 die cuts on my card - the outside shape, for the sentiment and I used the negative of a die cut to ink a scalloped circle behind my little monkey.

La La Land - Inspirational Monday - Circle Cards. I can't believe I've never stumbled into La La Land before - at least not the web site. :-) It is truly a great place for a card maker like me to be and I plan to return often.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my free sentiments. If you like freebies and challenges, stop by Avadares Challenge Blog to pick a free digi and join in the challenge. A new challenge, new freebie and the introduction of our design team starts August 3rd.
