Introducing Riley!



Noooo, he is not a new grandbaby [though I have one very close to coming]. This is Riley, my Sock Monkey from the SU Sock Monkey set! He is rather shy so I had to lure him out with some bananas LOL. He really does look a happy little guy and should bring a smile to the faces of those who receive him on a card!

I think there are many many fun ways to use him as he comes with some cute little accessory stamps - one being the banana, and then there is a party hat, balloon, flower, flag and others. Must think of some way of using him for Brandon's second birthday card - he is called a little monkey LOL.

Colours I used on this card are: Red Riding Hood, Barely Banana, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive.

Oh he is so gorgeous!!!! I love the sock monkey and can't wait to get him! He is so gorgeous coloured in - I don't think the catalogue does him justice not coloured in.
