Sock Monkey Halloween Card

It's been several days since I've been in my craft room. My nieces showed their sheep at the Tulsa State Fair on Wednesday and then my hubby had knee surgery on Thursday, so it's been a really busy week!!! This evening I was able to sneak a little time to make this Sock Monkey Halloween Card while my hubby took a nap. It's amazing how tired I am after his surgery!!! If you've ever taken care of someone after surgery then you know what I'm talking about.

In case you haven't guessed, I LOVE monkeys! Their antics are amusing and the majority of them are super cute. When looking through the selection of images at Bugaboo Digi Stamps I found this fun Sock Monkey image and decided he would be perfect for a few of my Halloween cards this year. I colored him with my Copic markers and used patterned paper from American Crafts. It's been awhile since I've stitched on a card, so I got the machine out and did a little stitching. The spider web punch is by Fiskars and the Trick or Treat sentiment is from the Best of Halloween stamp set by Stampin' Up!. Thanks for stopping by and if you get a chance there is still time to play along with my Monkey Business challenge. Have a great night and a pleasant tomorrow!
