Iron Craft 2014 Challenge #5--Thinking Ape Cutout Card (Project 10)

Iron Craft Challenge #5 was brought to us by Sesame Street and the Letter "A" or so it seemed. At least for me, it felt like an episode because I must have gone through every word that began with the Letter A. I really struggled with this challenge because it has been a very hectic week because I started working at the theater (at nights) so I am still getting used to working both jobs and fitting in all of the blog work and crafting.

This is a cutout card design that I have been saving for a while. It is originally a pumpkin carving design from Stoneykins.com. The original thought was for me to cut the stencil and then make a t-shirt out of it. When I first saw it, I thought it was a monkey but I was corrected by a friend and was told it was an ape. I said but it looks like a chimpanzee and he said--Exactly. Apparently, chimps are apes and no one told me. So my "thinking chimp" card really is a "thinking ape" card and therefore qualifies for the Letter A challenge.

Now, I just have to find an occasion to give the card to someone.

I know--I am working on the interior salutation.

I was thinking--Hmmm. Someone says you're 50. You don't look a day over 55. Happy Birthday, I think.
