Today was a REALLY busy day - we had practice for the retirement today and all I can say is I am glad we are practicing again tomorrow! I am sure by the time Friday gets here everything will be perfect, but today it was not even close!! I am at the point where I want the retirement ceremony to come and go - I am ready to be DONE!!! I am going on vacation and then will have a little time to just relax (can you stay scrapbooking and stamping) before I pack up the house here in Florida and head off to California to start my life as a retiree! I am really looking forward to getting settled there so that I can start my SU! business and share my love of this craft with everyone around me!!! So, I decided I needed to share another monkey card today - I know you are probably sick of them by now but I promise this is the last one! I really like this one - it was my personal favorite! I hope you like it as much as I do - the recipe is listed. I made this one for my guest speaker on Friday - I wanted a little more masculine feeling and the rich regals seem to say that IMO. So I decided to go for it and I think he will like it. He used to be my boss and I have really missed him this last year since he transferred but he is flying in from Washington DC just to speak at my ceremony. So, this card will accompany some really nice cigars as a thank you from me to him! Enjoy!
