Hopeful Monkey

I got up before everyone else today, so I took that time to do a bit of stamping.  I feel very inspired by the Hope You Can Cling To challenges, so I wanted to do another one.  I completed the second one hosted by Lori that involves making a card for a child.  Here's the description of her challenge:  Make a card or two for the kiddos! These could be for a child who is called to stand strong much to early by fighting or a child that needs a little extra lovin' while mom or dad focuses on getting well.   I combined it with the fun colors from colourQ this week.  

Yes, it's SOCK MONKEY!!  :)  I know he, or in this case she, has few fans, but I love it.  I thought it would be fun to paper piece her to add a bit of fun.   Hopefully there's a little girl somewhere that will like her and not be frightened.  lol   My card was inspired by this gorgeous one from Tessa.  

Stamps:  Sock Monkey (retired)
Ink:  Basic Gray
Paper:  Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Neutrals and Brights DSP stack
Tools/Accessories:  Big Shot, Chevron embossing folder, heart punch

I couldn't remember if I'd shared this picture of Laila, but it's one of my favorites.  Doesn't it look like she's holding that giraffe like a baby?
