monkey business

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.
It has been so cold here in the "Burgh the past week.
But, the good news is the days are getting longer. Today at 6:00 it wasn't completely dark.

My middle grandson, Aidin, had a basketball game this evening.

During the warm-ups he took the ball and started doing some fancy dribbling. Then he looked over where I was sitting and smiled.
He put on a little show for his Grandma. He learned how to do that last year at a basketball camp he attended.

It's just so fun going to all their sporting events. I so glad that I am retired now and can go whenever I want. They like it when their family comes to watch them.

So now onto my card for today. I made this on Saturday evening for the inspiration challenge on splitcoaststampers. This week we visited the Espe site.
Their was lots of great color combinations and designs. The site has wallets and purses.

I found a wallet that had the cutest little monkey peaking out from behind the grass. I posted a picture of the wallet I used for my inspiration as well.

So I decided to use that to create my card.

I bought some safari type rub-ons several months ago and knew they would work well on this card. I cut the grass out of card stock. I added the monkey business sentiment at the top and basically that's my card.

I thought this could be a kid's birthday card. It's a clean and simple card.

Then, this morning On the clean and simple thread at splitcoaststampers, I noticed that Bev Gerard (texasgrammy on SCS) chose my card as one of the favorites of the week. I was so honored.

Well, its a wrap for today my friends. Sending hugs & blessings from charmed life land.
