Thank you for all the lovely and caring comments you have all been leaving me, it warms my heart to know that people I have never met before can actually be my friends!  I was feeling happy and decided to go a bit bright with my card:

The designer paper is from Simple Stories.  The sentiment and the Pom Pom flower are from Hero Arts.  I added some white dots on the petals for fun,  The centre is a small piece of felt that I die cut with an MFT die.

Thanks for all your concerns regarding the monkeys!  I obtained 4 pieces of information when googling what to do about these specific fellows:

1) Keep your windows and doors shut (right, try that in summer when you have no air-conditioning!)
2) Put away the fruit. (Ok, easy enough.  Oh dear, we have fruit trees!)
3) Let a man handle the monkeys, apparently they (the monkeys) respond better! (Ok, I can only abide by that rule every other two weeks, oops!)
4) Spray them with water to chase them away. Sounds easy enough, but I wonder how long the hosepipe needs to be in order to chase them around the whole garden???

This is going to be fun, fun, fun   :))

One more sleep and my brother will be here!

Lovely bright pretty colors! Love the card Brenda. We too have monkeys around and we have found that letting off a few fire crackers chases them away for awhile, but too many bangs upset the dogs... Can't win! Enjoy your brother and family.
