For example, the other day, I was happily browsing Google Reader - which I haven't looked at since JANUARY - and I was perusing one of my fave baby animal blogs.
Exotic kittens, baby polar bears, fennec foxes, other assorted cute things with big ears...
And then... BAM.
A frigging MONKEY.
I cannot STAND monkeys. Do NOT post a comment saying - oh really - even this cute monkey that fits on your finger? NO - absolutely not - all monkeys are foul, disgusting creatures. And I like ASPS, for goodness' sake.
So, in my despair over unwittingly being exposed to a monkey I wasn't warned about, I invented the monkey blocker.
It's like a pop up blocker, except it's customized to monkeys. Or really, anything you want! Hate shrimp? No problem! Put "shrimp" or "monkey" into my blocker and you will start seeing images like these.
That is SO much better than the original image, which you can see here.
Think how much people would pay for this!!
I'd block every monkey, crawdad, scorpion and Kardashian on the interwebz!
With that behind me, I was free to make a card.
This was one of last month's class cards. I could not resist using this ADORABLE Frightening Feline halloween image! My friend Mel guessed that this image would be my fave from the new Holiday Mini and she was right! :)
The pennants and base are from Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP and the new OMG Champagne glimmer paper is the bomb.
I wanted to be able to play along with this month's Stampin' Up! Creative Crew challenges on Splitcoast - have you checked out the gallery this month? It's AMAZING!
I decided to do the Holiday focus challenge for my little way-less-scary-than-a-monkey kitty.
Want to play along? Check out the challenges here and peep the gallery here.
You shouldn't be. I blocked all the monkeys.
