Hey there, I made this card for my brother-in-law who has cancer.  He is a little more than half way through his chemotherapy and radiation treatments.  Although you would think that was great, I've been told the second half is worse.  I hope this card brightens his day!

This sweet, little guy is Pull-Up Monkey from Whipper Snapper Designs.  He was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White then colored with Copic markers.  I extended the branch he hangs on by stamping the leaves a second time then drawing in the tiny bit of branch to reach the card's edge (didn't want the branch suspended in mid air!).  One leaf in each group was stamped a second time, colored, fussy cut then popped up on foam.  The monkey's two larger fingers were also stamped, colored, fussy cut then popped up on foam to make it appear like he is really hanging onto the branch.  Really love how this turned layout and rich colors!  This card also fits into a couple challenges over at Splitcoaststampers:  Fan Club's Central Theme, You Raise Me Up, and SCS's Love Fest Challenge, Puppy Love (to use cute and cuddly critters).

MONKEY:  E37, E35, E34  FACE, EARS, HANDS, FEET, BELLY:  E33, E31, E30, R30  LIMB:  E59, E57, E55, E53  LEAVES:  YG17, YG03, YG0000

What a lovely cheerful card with such a lovely caring thought behind it. I do hope your Brother-in-Law gets through the next round of chemo successfully.
