Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog #330 - Baby

Hi, Crafty Friends!  We're back with another fun challenge at Fantabulous Cricult Challenge Blog. This time our theme is Baby.  I decided to pay homage to my childhood. Back then, a lot of babies had Sock Monkeys.  I was delighted to find this darling Cricut image. Sock Monkeys are still around, although they are not as popular as in the "olden days" if you know what I mean - LOL!  Still, it's a delightful toy for any baby, boy or girl.  Here's my card:

After cutting out the monkey, I inked up a stencil and created the dotted background.  I assembled the cute little money and balanced him atop some baker's twine. Then I just rounded two corners and added a sentiment.  I just love this card.

Cricut Cartridge:  B is for Baby (Cricut Lite)
Card stock:  Recollections 110 lb and 60 lb
Ink:  Colorbox Banana
Baker's Twine:  My stash

  2. What an adorable card Sheila! I love your sock monkey!!! I believe Cricut has a couple of sock monkey's. Yes, they were very popular back in the day. I never had one, but I knew a lot of people who did. Still popular but not like yesteryear! lol Hugs, Brenda
