HEY HEY WE'RE THE MONKEYS!

Hi all!!! I hope you survived Monday, I barely did, LOL! What a terrible day, it was one of those that nothing goes right...uggghhh!!! So, I have decided that today WILL be better, heehee!!!  So, I am sharing another workshop card today using the Fox & Friends stamp set that is in the Occasions Mini.  I love the cute monkey, he makes me smile!! The sentiment is from the Smarty Pants set, love the sayings it has!! Very simple card again, I am trying to keep them that way for my workshops - soooo hard not to add this, that, and that other, LOL!!! On a personal note:  today is my oldest child's TWENTY-FIRST birthday!!!!!  I cannot believe my baby boy is now officially an adult. How did that happen? It seems like only yesterday that I was holding my little boy in my arms, and now he is getting ready to graduate from the Naval Academy.  I am sooo very proud of him!!! Happy birthday Zach, I love you and wish you were closer so we could celebrate!!!!!!

Oh my gosh, how cute are the little monkeys! You always have the cutest stamps. I'm totally inspired by you - and not to just do more cards, but to get my stamps out and actually use them! LOL
