It's a Zoo Here

I'm so excited to be a Guest Designer again on the Friday Mashup Challenge Blog!  This is the challenge this week....

When Holly sent it to me, I nearly panicked!  I don't have any zoo stamps! Nary a one! Oh my, what to do?

I thought of punching a lion.  I think I've seen one done somewhere.  But company was coming and I didn't have a lot of time before my stamping room was broken down and turned into a guest room.

Then, like the lightbulb in the cartoons, I thought of that monkey I had stamped, colored and cut out and was currently residing in my UFO box.

I used the layout from the Clean&Simple FTL#132.  I flipped it so my little guy could hang.

I did the sentiment on the computer since I didn't have an appropriate stamp.

The foliage is from Pocket Silhouettes and the vines are Baroque Motifs.  I have no idea where the monkey stamp came from.  I think it was one of the dollar stamps from somewhere.  He's now living with a friend.

It's been so much fun being a Guest Designer!  I hope you go on over and see the adorable zoo cards that the rest of the design team and my co-guest designer did.  While you're there, join in the challenge at Friday Mashup.

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy!

Bonnie, this is just too cute. You and that UFO really came in handy this time. Makes me smile. I love your hanging vines and that adorable monkey. Great card!

Very cute! Thought it was the monkey from Fox and Friends at first!
