For my monkey....

I made a card for my oldest son who will be 24 on Monday. My youngest son saw it and had to give it to his brother. So.....I made another. I was looking for manly papers to use with a star image and came across the monkey paper. I got it in a box from a friend who sent me a ton of scraps (full sheet, mind you). The backside is bananas but the image was too big to incorporate that. I think it's Daisie D's.

Anyway, I looked through my digi images and found this cute monkey from Bugaboo Stamps and thought he'd look cute with the paper. The sentiment is by Hero Arts. The inside says, "hope you have a one of a kind birthday." By the way, go and check out Bugaboo. They have another adorable freebie posted!! And they also have some amazing blog candy (see my sidebar).

I asked my son if we were celebrating his birthday on Easter and he said no! I then told him that his brother works on Mon. from 1-9 so it was the only time he could make it. Then he found out his friends are taking him out for drinks so he's fine with Easter Sunday! LOL It will be strange having his birthday cake for our Easter dessert though.

Please excuse the horrible photo. The colors are a bit faded.
