SOCK MONKEY RAK from LORRI

Good 'ol Lorri Heling mailed this birthday card to Allie for her birthday yesterday using one of the new stamp sets you'll find in the new Stampin' Up! catalog - Sock Monkey ... AND new designer paper, Bella Rose and the new Scallop Border Punch. I laughed out loud when Allie opened Lorri's card! You see, I've expressed to Lorri several times how much I dislike this new stamp set and she just HAD to send this card to my house to get a rise out of me! I know many of you love this new stamp set, but I'm sorry -- it just gives me the creeps! There are very few stamp sets from Stampin' Up! that I've ever disliked, and this is one of them! I can't help but see this sock monkey in a horror movie or something! Weird, huh?! Lorri, even though the set isn't my favorite, I DO love your card!!! See all the details for Lorri's card HERE.

I love this card! But then, I also love the sock monkey. Happy Birthday to your daughter! 17 is a fun age! I wish I was 17 again!

Nice card but I have to agree where did they come up with him. Not my favorite either. Glad to hear your daughter had a nice birthday. Congrats on the job! I'm sure your going to be great. Good luck tomorrow. Dottie K.

Ps. Not sure how I feel about Sock Monkey. Have no fear, Nancy, I didn't BUY the set, I borrowed it from Jessica. THANKS Jessica! LOL

I'm afraid that I agree with you on the Sock Monkey. I don't think I've EVER liked Sock Monkies... I'm just glad that there are some people that do -- I guess.

Happy Birthday to Allie and yes, I'm with you on the class rings ... they are sooo expensive and the kids don't even wear them after a while. I agree with your comments regarding sock monkey - I haven't seen the complete set but so far ... I know I'm skipping it.
Best wishes on your new job tomorrow!

Deborah said...

I am too terribly fond of this one either! The card is darling though for sure! I can't wait to see the cattie and get my hands on some of that nice new paper and the bordr scallop punch! Hugs, Deb

Lorri's card is cute...I love the banana! I'm with you, though, this little guy gives me the heebie jeebies!

Debra said...

Sounds like I'm not the only one who doesn't like Sock Monkey! Good luck on your job, remember it's just the first day and you'll get to enjoy it once you learn the ropes... BTW, are you working at Sprinkles?

Wow, I can't believe the number of people who dislike this set. Count me in on the strong "dislike" set. CREEEEPY Sock Monkey. There's a new set in the new catalog that's even creepier. I think you'll know which one I see when you view the catty. What were they thinking...I'm glad there are way more nice, cute, beautiful stamps. Cheryl in Reno-Sparks, NV

I think the Sock Monkey is a "love it" or "hate it" kind of thing. I am personally in the "hate it" category.
However, Lorri did a fabulous job with it and I have seen a couple of cute cards made with this set! It is definitely not on my wish list! Good luck on your new job!

Happy belated birthday to your daughter!

Okay, I guess I am in the minority because I really like this little guy and find him cute!! And, yep, I am buying the accessories too - LOL! I love this card, it turned out adorable - and glad to hear you first day back at work went so well! Can't wait to see the tags you are making! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex
