Second Valentine post today!

My second card post for today is for my grandson.  He and I share a love for the lovable sock monkey! I have one that I share when Hayden comes to visit. He would never admit to it, but he likes having him to snuggle with at night. And, most importantly, I call Hayden MY little "monkey". 
I used the red Bazzill cardstock again, but this time embossed it with Swiss Dots. The banner is cut from several Cosmo Cricket papers, again the vellum is a sentiment from Colorbok. I would love to say I know who makes the Sock Monkey paper, but I picked it up at my LSS some time ago and it's not stamped. My bad!
The best part of this card is that I got out my sewing machine! Poor thing has been packed away since our move. I love the look of stitching on cards/layouts and intend to use it more in the future!
Now, off to work on birthday cards!  So many February birthdays!
