I thought I'd share one quick card with you before I head to bed. I have a set of clear stamps that are labeled "Boys and Their Toys". I've had them for years and am not sure who manufactured them, but I am guessing they have been discontinued. I've used the car stamp in the set many times, but haven't used many of the other stamps. I was looking through my stamp collection last night, spotted the monkey in the "Boys and Their Toys" set and decided to use it on a card.
My grandmother, Nana Riley, had a red-heeled sock monkey sitting on her couch. I've been thinking about that monkey lately because there's a sock monkey in a current Pier One commercial on television. I decided to pretend that the monkey on my stamp was a sock monkey so I stamped it onto a piece of paper from Lawn Fawn's "Bright Side" collection that reminds me of fabric. I fussy cut it and adhered it to a piece of layering paper along with some balloons that I stamped and fussy cut from the Hero Arts "Wonderful Birthday" clear stamp set.
Ironically, I realized a short time ago that tomorrow, June 12, would have been Nana's birthday!
