Hey Dude! Just buzzin' by

Good Morning!
Yesterday was super busy and when I got home I didn't feel much like stamping....I know...I'm shocked
Luckily I had this card ready for Lauren's Saturday Sketch.
This week we are making cards to send to Alicia who is another Saturday Sketch Girl. Her son Ethan's cancer has progressed and the news hasn't been very good. I wanted to make my card for Ethan and after looking through all my stamps I couldn't find any get well type image for a child. Then I spotted this Changito Monkey in the drawer and thought I could use him! The flower center had Thank You(I think) so I decided to punch a So Saffron circle and emboss it to cover it up. I think it worked pretty good! The sentiment is from AmyR's Wardrobe Sentiments that you can find at All That Scraps.
Stamps: Changito Monkey, AmyR's Wardrobe Sentiments; Cardstock: Choc Chip, So Saffron, Blue Bayou, White and WeRMemoryKeepers White Collection dp; Inks: Mememto Black; Accessories: Copics, Circle Punch, Swiss Dots embossing folder, Designer label punch, ribbon, Mat pack and paper piercer, dimensionals
Here is the sketch! If you play along and upload to SCS please use the keyword mytimess27 so we can find you!
Saturday Sketch Team:
Yesterday's Limited Supply Challenge was fairly simple. You were to use a bug image, no more than 4 layers of cardstock and NO designer papers. That equals a simple card! This is what I came up with.

Stamps: Just Buzzin' By; Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Choc chip, WC paper; Inks: Versafine Black, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Choc chip, Blush Blossom, More Mustard; Accessories: Aqua Painter, Nesties, Swiss Dots embossing folder, Eyelet border punch, Flower Fusion, Silver Brad, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!

That monkey is great. I forgot I had monkey stamps I could have used for my card for Ethan. Great work!

Seriously, I think I almost fell over when I read that *you* didn't feel like stamping. Are you trying to bring on MORE snow??? :)

I love that ribbon on the monkey card. What a great color. Have to tell you, I love the way you color that beehive...I still have your blue bee card on my wall. You rock that set!
