Monkey See, Monkey Do


This cute little monkey fishing out of his inner tube is from Designed2Delight and isn't he just a cutie! When I was making the card I kept trying to think of what occasion it would be good for and I finally decided he'd make a cute little Valentine's Day card.....on the inside I put, "You're a Keeper"! And then, of course, Happy Valentine's Day. I probably came up with that brilliant idea after seeing all the red on this! LOL!

I love to fish, but have just never wanted to try the fishing in the inner tube thing. Alot of people do - but all I can think of is that there are just too many unknowns under there that could nibble on my feet!

This is for the progressive challenge at Designed2Delight. It's also for Aly's Sunday Challenge. The theme for this challenge to Get Dotty..........and there are alot of dots on this card!
I colored this little guy with Copic and SU markers. The sentiment is from Outdoor Thoughts by CTMH. Oh, and I used some Creative Inspirations paint on the dots on the inner tube to give it a little shine.

Thanks for stopping by...............
