Three Friendly, Furry Monsters

Once I saw these cute, little furry monsters that a number of people have pinned on Pinterest, I wanted to give it a go. I still had the eyes from a Holiday catalogue from about a year ago, and I had the Simple Stems stamp set too. Yes - believe it or not, it is a flower from that stamp set, but I doubt that I will EVER see it that way!

The Paper Player's challenge, set by LeAnne this week, is to use three: a "Three Spree."
Therefore, three little monsters (with another one inside for good measure). This might just end up being the birthday card for the grandson turning three this year too, unless I think of something better before then! For that reason, I have finished this card inside as well.

Now, I have also based the layout on the sketch at Try Stamping On Tuesday. Not with a photo, as suggested, but I might later, although I rarely do a single photo layout. Only one of the design team did, so I don't feel TOO badly.
I also used a couple of stamps from Just Sayin' and cut them with the matching Word Bubble Framelit Dies. The greeting inside is from the retired stamp set Up, Up and Away. Those sentiments fit the Word Bubbles nicely too. A strip of Perfect Plum was dry embossed with Embossing Folder Alphabet Press, love the texture it gives.

I'm planning to do some more creating today, must away...
