Evil Monkeys and Such

Hi! Thanks for stopping by!

Last night I went to visit one of the boys in our youth group as he managed to land himself in the hospital after a dirt bike accident. He broke his leg something fierce and had to have surgery, so Sean and I went to see him and spend some time with him and his mom last night after the surgery. He is doing pretty well now, but he has to quite a bit of recovering to do and may beep in airports due to the two screws they placed in his bone to put it back together! I made him a quick card before we left to help cheer him up a bit. Yes...17 year old boys do actually appreciate handmade cards! LOL!

Here is the card I made:

Feel Better Soon

I love that little Monkey! He is just too adorable! He is a Close to My Heart stamp (which, by the way...I have an order open until tomorrow if you need anything!) colored with Prismacolor markers on Basic Grey patterned papers. Too much fun! The sentiment stamp, ink, and brads are all CTMH, as well.

And this....my friends....is why one should not leave scrapbook supplies out where a husband could possibly find them. You know....like ANYWHERE in your HOUSE! LOL!

I'd like to introduce you to the "ANGRY Monkey" by my wonderful husband:

What happens when you leave your scrapbook supplies out...

What is it about adorable little critter stamps that automatically sends a grown mans mind into a wild frenzy of either images of "pooping" animals or, as showcased here, EVIL animals! LOL! It made me laugh. I have to admit that! LOL!

So, what do you think? Does the monkey look angry to you? I don't think so...I think he is adorable...well, unless you add a bloody sword and crooked eyebrows!
