Getting down with the monkeys!

You have to love it when the mail day is a good one! And it's even better when you get twice the fun! And it is THE BEST when you get a card from Beate!!! Beate sent me some of those Changito images I have been drooling over. I placed an order about a month ago for those monkeys but my local supplier (4 hours away hehe) can't get them until July when she places her order. So I figured I would sit patiently until Beate came to the rescue!!! Thank you Beate for making my day. I have had a lot of fun playing with Changito and his buds.
I also received my Karen Foster snap stamps in the mail too. I was so excited and have been using them all day long. I also created a few cards to get me through the next few days while I visit with my mum and brother. We are having a nice lil' family reunion. The kids and I can't wait! Too bad DH has to work.
So back to the cards...I decided to share Beate's card first (of course hers ROCKS!) and then one of my newly created cards using one of the images she sent me.
