Monkeying Around

Well I'm just monkeying around day today with this fun and adorable image released earlier this month at Doodle Pantry.  He looks like such a happy chap hanging there taking it all in!  This set is called Mister Monkey and the best part is that it is FREE!  Yep, everyone that participates in this month's challenge at the Doodle Pantry Blog will get this cute monkey set.

To play along in the challenge, just create a card using a Doodle Pantry image and you're good to go!  Mister Monkey will be yours and we'll get a little inspiration from your creativity.  Such a deal!  But you'll have to hurry - the challenge closes on September 24th. After that, he'll be available for purchase at the Doodle Pantry Store.

Mister Monkey was colored with Copics and then paired with Basic Grey's Lauderdale papers that I was hoarding in my stash.  Love these bright, fun colors! The yellow ribbon is seam binding that I twisted to look like cording.

I was inspired by this layout at the Friday Sketch Challenge.  I adjusted it for a 5.5-inch square card and either way it's a terrific sketch.  I'm entering my card in their challenge this week.

Well there you have it - a fun way to start the day and get inspired to play in our Doodle Pantry Challenge.  Hope to see you over there.

Thanks for stopping by!
