{ My little monkey }

Alex has many nicknames, and this is one of them. I don't even know when it started, but ever since then I see monkey stuff all over the place. His shirt (see below) gave me an idea for the card. I had these Autumn Leaves stamps since I was pregnant and just now got to use them. The paper is new Die Cuts With A View Nana's Nursery collection Baby Boy. I stamped the tree branch and the monkey on patterned paper and then cut it out. I embossed the background with Sizzix embossing template and then sanded the embossed lines. Die Cuts With A View cardstock had that white core that I love.
Look what I found the other day at Target. I just had to get it for him. I went back yesterday and they have many other monkey themed things. I saw a piggy bank, cookie jar, lunch box.... I found another blue outfit for him at Kohl's that has a monkey hanging on the front and it comes with a bib that says: "My little monkey". And then yesterday I found the same one, but in pink, for his little friend Mia who has the same nickname.
I actually have more things to show you, but no time to write it all up. My husband comes home on Friday and I will have more time then. I want to give away some crochet flowers this week so be on a look out for that post. It is late and I need to go to bed. Alex is sleeping, but not for long. Doing all this by myself is totally exhausting.

  5. Your baby is so cute and the monkey stuff adorable.
    Did you know that High Hopes stamps has a new jungle line and they have a Monkey named Mike? He is too cute. I will post my card later on the weekend and if you have time you can go and see the stamp. There are three versions, small, large and hanging on a vine.
    Have a great day and go "bananas LOL"
