10 Little Monkeys Jumping ....

on the bed ..... do you remember your kids singing that song - I can remember my youngest doing it with the neighbor boy Kyle - every time I hear that song I think of the two of them playing together. Fun memories. I watched Kyle when they started kindergarten and put him on the bus for several years after that. I think he now has 3 or 4 kids - I wonder if they sing that song.
I have started sending cards weekly to a friend who is going through a very rough time in her life and for some reason - we have a monkey theme - I think I am going to be amazed how many monkey stamps I have. But at least they will be inked - if they have never been inked before. I know she will appreciate them.
This card is based on the sketch at Taylored Expressions - she has a sketch challenge each Friday. Very fun sketch this week. I even have the inside finished and I am even going to address the envelope so it can go in the mail next week.

The center of the flower says thank you so we hid that with a flower.

Everyone have a good end of the week end - I still have laundry, housework, etc. to do - I also need to get a card made for a baby shower on Tuesday so want to get that done tonight - I have everything picked out in my head.
