Birthday Card for my Father-in-law

My father-in-law is visiting from Samoa and his birthday is coming up in November. He was born Year of the Monkey and since he is Samoan, he loves his bananas, lol! Sorry about the quality of the picture, I think I need a new camera. I have the Sony Cybershot, but it seems to always take either blurry or funky pictures. Any suggestions? Was thinking of the Canon Rebel, but who knows. Anyhoo, here is the card I made. Just a simply little card....



My gf Michele sent me this wonderful Halloween rak yesterday! I was so excited! Look at how the card pops-up! So cool! Thanks Michele! You are so sweet!







Hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween! I just love Halloween! Next think you know it will be Christmas, yikes! Thank you to everyone for always leaving such wonderful comments! Big hugs!

great card! I must be a monkey too cuz' I love bananas! Michele's card is great! Love that stamp!
Are you going to Jacque's tonight? If so, bring your camera and I'll show you some features on it that may help. I think it's the same one as my mom's.
