Hang in There!

The son of a dear friend had to have knee surgery because he tore his ACL. You can imagine the disappointment of not being able to participate in the first season of high school football.  I made this card for him to cheer him up and when I found this poem, well it just made it perfect!
I used the following cricut cartridges - the leaves are cut at various sizes and some of them are popped up on pop dots and were cut using Life is a Beach, the vines are from Create a Critter and the adorable monkey is from Everyday Paper Dolls. As you can see I gave him some cute googly eyes :)
The sentiment and inside verse is from my computer. I inked the image and the inside mats with Memento's Bamboo Leaves ink. I used the same ink to stamp the leaves on the inside of the card.
I'm going to enter this card in a challenge at My Craft Spot which is to make a card using a wild animal. I don't know that my cute little monkey is considered "wild" but I think it will be fun to enter Kimberley's challenge! Pop on over to her blog - those talented ladies have some very creative cards and loads of inspiration.
I hope you are all having a wonderful week!
