I wanna live where the green grass grows...watch my corn pop up in rows...

Guess what I've been doing this morning?! Yep, you got it! Yardwork! Yeah, not my favorite thing. We've been working since about 8:30 and it's 11 now! WHEW! At least it looks nicer out there, the yard had been sorely neglected.

Today's another Sketch for You to Try from Jen...this one was easier than I thought it would be. I pulled out this little Monkey from C. C. Designs that I had stamped and colored (during my mojo-less stamping and coloring stint) and after sorting through my pattered paper, decided this Mellow paper from Basic Grey was perfect! This card also works for the Ways to Use it challenge this week, which was for all papers except the card base be patterned paper. I promise, even the solids on this card are from the Mellow 6x6 pad!

We are off to CiCi's for lunch and then probably a nap! *GRIN* Make sure you check out Amy, Carole, & Susan's samples, as well as Jen's and Joanne's on Jen's blog. Have a great Saturday!

So cute! That mellow paper is anything but mellow, huh? Perfect for a jungle theme, though. Love the scalloped bottom to your card. Happy Saturday! :)
