Sock Monkey says "Dessert First"


Happy Tuesday! I've been debating whether to post at morning or night, still not sure, but looks like tonight won today! lol! I made this card last night for Kazan's Sketch #8 over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I really wasn't satisfied with it and gave up and went to bed. I thought I'd tweak it tonight, but I never got around to it, so here it is. A little plain, but oh well!

Do you like the little "dessert first" piece? That could so be my motto! My friend Lori gave it to me a few years ago, but I didn't save the original packaging so I don't know who made it. It has retro-looking birthday images, I think the packaging had blue and pink and maybe a crown on it, and maybe the word "etcetera"? Anyway, it had fallen out and was laying out on my desk since I organized things onto my Clip It Up awhile back, and the cupcake was an extra part leftover from this convention swap card, and the monkey had been cut out but never used, so they just kind of merged together. Kind of a Frankenstein Sock Monkey, I guess you could say!

So, did anyone watch the new 90210 tonight? I'm *embarrassed* to say I did. The *young* folks at the office were talking about it today, and we decided to watch so we could discuss it tomorrow. I thought it was really bad. Was the original that bad? Maybe I'm just way too old to *get* it now? Thoughts, please (about the show, not about me being too old to *get* it!).

Okay, signing off now...still need to check out some other blogs before bed! Thanks for stopping by! Have you stamped something today?

Really cute sock monkey, and I like his strategy!

I was too old to watch 90210 the first time, so I'm no help!

Precious card Angie! Watched a bit of 90210 last night. Needless to say, I didn't get it. Won't be adding it to my fall favorite line up. :)

Cute cute!! LOVE!!! 90210, I didn't know they made a new one. Oh wait, I have no cable service :) The first one was ok. Not stellar but entertaining. The 2nd.. I'd probably take a peak. Now I'm curious :)

I am so behind in my reading! I love your sock monkey's motto *wink* dessert is the BEST! I love the way you dressed him up. I missed the new 90210! I intended to watch it but didn't realize when it came out - I totally loved the old one (occasionally if nothing is on tv I will watch the old epidoes) HA! it's o.k. there are plenty of other shows I plan on watching - don't need to add another anyway!

Beate said...

That is so stinking cute!
Wait...there was a new show on and I missed it? Dang it!
Hugs and smiles

This is adorable! I just love Sock Monkey and I'll take his advice to heart. LOL!

I didn't realize the 90210's were new. I just thought they were starting the old series over. I'll have to watch for it. I need some new stuff to watch.

I love to hear how your cards come together. It all flows so nicely together you'd swear it was all planned from the start! I so agree with this sentiment too!

Cute card...I really like it. Sadly I watched 90210, I'm not sure about it...I even got my hubby to watch, only because he used to occasioaly watch the original one growing up so he thought it was fun to try and pick up on all the little things they added to tie it back to the original. :) Oh and I have to mention...don't you love your clip-it-up! I have had mine for forever (my aunt is Simply Renee) but even if she wasn't, I would still love it. :)

Lynn said...

This is absolutely darling! Love the layout, the paper piecing & of course the dessert first sentiment! CUTE!!!
