It's the last Thursday in October already - this has been a fun month of Create-a-Cupcake Thursdays! Hope you've enjoyed my trips 'outside the box' with this set from Impression Obsession... thanks to Kelli for the fun challenge! I still have more ideas, so this won't be my last cupcake card by any means...but for now, it's about time to go back to the rest of my neglected and NEW I.O. stamps...

So this is Create-a-Monkey...when we first moved overseas there was a guy that came around the neighborhoods with a trained monkey and he'd do a show in our driveway for about 50 cents - all the neighborhood kids would gather around and then just migrate from driveway to driveway, wherever someone was willing to pay for a show. I haven't seen anything like that here, but drew on the memories for inspiration for this little guy. Good times.

I drew in the tassel for his hat, and drew in his little mouth - the rest is colored with Neopiko markers and Prismacolor pencils. I made the embroidery thread tassel with my Bow-Easy - I'll have to do that again and take pictures next time.

That's all I know today - I'll be back with 2 winners' names and one last cupcake card Saturday night - stay tuned!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
