Monkeys, Monkeys Everywhere

I mentioned in my last post that I'm going to be an Aunt again!  I'm so excited!  I absolutely LOVE babies.  Now that mine are growing up (they're 11 and 14) I am always in the market to borrow one from a friend or neighbor for a few hours to get my "fix", so I can't wait for our newest addition to arrive!  Unfortunately, for now, they live several hundred miles away so I won't get to see him as much as I'd like.

Yesterday, I shared a card I made for my mom to give to the mother-to-be at her baby shower today.  Today, I'm going to share the card I made.  I was totally and completely inspired by this card created by mum of 2+2 at Splitcoaststampers!  I think her card is AMAZING and since the theme of my nephew's nursery is going to be monkeys it was absolutely perfect! 

My new nephew's name is Dawson, so the card had to be fairly long for his name to fit.  I made a rather odd sized card -- 8 1/2" x 2 3/4".  I figured after she opens the gift and reads the card I can ask her for it back so I can frame it for her and have it ready for her to take with her when she stops by our house on her way back home in two weeks.  I saw a 3 x 9 frame at Wal-Mart that would be perfect for it!
