Fun with Monkeys

Just a fun little card for someone that needs a lift!  I never seem to have that type of card and yet need them at times.  It's a  little different than a "thinking of you" type card  - when I think of that type of card, I always think in terms of "pretty", not fun - so this will be somewhat different.  Besides that, what's NOT to love about a monkey - um....maybe the smell of one is not so great but they sure are cute little buggers!  LOL!



I love these little guys and hopefully the card will cheer someone up.  The image and sentiment are from Hero Arts and I'll enter this in  A Blog Names Hero challenge (Freestyle) and Try Stampin on Tuesday for the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by.......and I'll be back on Tuesday with my Shopping Our Stash and {Pin}spirational posts!

Great use of these monkey's! I have this stamp too and don't use it often, but DO use it for the 'hang in there' sentiment!

Love your scallops!

Hi Lynn, it is so cute with the monkies and the sentiment. The sponging looks so nice.
