WeeMonkey Boys Birthday Card

Here's my card for today, a super simple design for a little boy.  

There's an annoying song I keep coming across about monkeys jumping on beds.  There's one particular line "mum called the doctor and the doctor said no more monkeys jumping on the bed".  The doctor's voice is exaggerated, implying the pointing finger that goes with it.  

I can't get the darn thing out of my head!!!

What was wrong with nice, simple old fashioned nursery rhymes?  

I like to decorate the inside too:

  2. I love the monkey and the lovely bright colours inside and out - a really FUN card! However I hate that you've got that monkeys on the bed song going through my head too now! One of my grandchildren was obsessed with it for a while.
