Monkey Love for Valentines Day!!!!!

Good Morning and Happy Friday Everyone!!!!

Well it is the first Friday of February and the First Friday of the Month always means a New Release Blog Hop for The Character Cafe Team!!!

This month as always they have some really cute adorable and Artistic Images to fill all taste buds desires!!!

I was assigned Monkey Love this time around.  Monkey Love is a 4 image set one with the Monkey hanging from the Chadelier, and 3 with the Monkey hanging from the Chandelier with sentiments above and below him.  I am showcasing one of the Sentiments with the Monkey and the Chandelier and then the other 3 projects I opened the Monkey Hanging from the Chandelier and erased the Chandelier so it was just the Monkey Hanging so I could have him hanging from differen Valentines Candy projects!!!

This month the Blog Hop starts at The Character Cafe Store

So Now onto my New Release Monkey Love Projects!!!

I made a card and I bought some fun Valentines Candy items to turn into Monkey Love Items too!!!  I think this set will be Pipers Gift to her Teacher for Valentines day!!!  The Items are a small set of Chocolates in a red Heart.  A Set of Sweet and Sour Gummy Heart Candys in a cute Valentines Day Purse (and yes I bought two of those so I could take one apart and use the template!!!! LOL and a box of Sweet Tart Candy Hearts!!!!

I hope you enjoy the set if was fun to color up and make this many Monkey Love Images!!!

Here is My Monkey Love Card.  You can not see it for some reason but this Cream and Pink Colored DSP is SU!s new Valentines Paper and it is laced with gorgeous Glitter (always a plus!!!)

I also used my Nesties Labels 4 and the flower is a stamp I stamped colored and cut out to add to the card.  I also added some Dew Drops from my Flame Set to the flower center and both ends of the ribbon I got at Hobby Lobby.  All the Designer papers are from that New Valentines Day SU! set.  I used 3 of them but one is hard for you to see because it is in one of the Nestie layers all the popped up layers are popped up using one or two layers of SU! Stampin Dimensionals.  I also rounded the corners with one of my old decorative corner rounders.
My Monkey Love images are colored with these Copics:
Light part of the Monkey: E30, E33
Dark parts of the Monkey: E33, E35, E37
Monkeys Mouth and Tounge: RV00, RV02
Chandelier: C1, C3, C5, E50, YR17
Flower in right corner: R20, R29, R35
Tracing around the Sentiment: RV02, E29
Here is one last side view of the Card so you can see some of the dimension.  The Image nestie layer and the first red layer and the second red Nestie layers are popped up one and two layers above the layer below them.

The Strip of Paper is popped up once too.
Here is a picture of the 3 Valentines Candy Projects together without the card.

Well as I am tired and have to get up early tomorrow I am off to bed but I hope you love this blog hop all of the images are super cute!!!

Don't Forget there are lots of Prizes for the Hop so don't forget to become a follower of the Blog and leave comments for everyone along the way so that you have a chance to win our images we each sowcase!!!!
