Father's Day

I used Beate's sketch challenge...again! Thank you so much for your wonderful sketches! Perfect for when I'm having stamper's block...and I need to get some cards done for Father's Day. Now that I'm making cards, I really try to get them out as early as possible so people can enjoy them for a bit.

I was planning on using my "Happy Father's Day" stamp from AYC II, but Kathy has that. I'll probaly stamp that inside. And I wasn't sure that it would work with this sketch anyhow.
I went ahead & used the hanging monkey & "love ya bunches" from Monkey Business. I *love* this set! The monkey is choc chip & I colored him w/ close to cocoa. I stamped him on confetti white & used my mom's 3" circle punch to cut him out. He's mounted on caribbean cool (so glad I have more of that! I love this color.) on a choc chip card. The first one I made has 1/2" old olive circle details on the left. Originally I punched 1/8" in the center but I didn't like that. And after I made the first one I realized I had a strip of barely banana on my desk waiting to be used...I got 9 circles punched out of it (barely!). And I think I like the yellow on the card better anyways

I love your little monkey card. I like the olive circles the best. Thank you so much for participating in the challenge.
