Birthday Card for Jodi

Before I share my card today, I'd like to take the time to THANK YOU all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers for our family. All of your love will carry us through this adjustment period.
Last night, we celebrated my niece, Jodi's birthday. I didn't have time to make her a card til this morning though, so I will give it to her today. Here's a photo of the cousins, my son hates to take photos now. Could it be that I took too many of him as a small child??Here's my card for Jodi. Her favorite color is purple so I had to incorporate the color in somehow. I used this DSP from a retired Level 3 hostess kit, but it was appropriate with all of the happy birthday and cakes on it. The image is my favorite monkey friend (Jodi likes monkeys too). I think my mojo is not quite up to par because I was not exactly thrilled with the outcome of this card, but for now, this will have to do. I need to find my mojo, so if you see it somewhere, can you send it back to me?I made this card using the origami fold technique. To find out how to make this card, you can check out the tutorial on my sidebar. Here's the inside of the card.
Have a wonderful, relaxing Sunday. Tomorrow, I will share with you the measurements for the insert of that giftcard holder that I promised you a while back.
Also, for those of you who requested the SAB catty and the current mini catty, I will get those out to you this week. Our sale-a-bration has started and I'm so excited to get started so I can receive those FREE stamp sets! Can't wait to get the new punch too!! Check it out now on my sidebar - click on the sale-a-bration catalog to be linked to the catalog for viewing!
One more thing...I will be emailing you the partners for the January OCS today!

Hi Teri, your card turned out perfect! It's cute and I love that new monkey stamp you've been using.
No worries about the missing mojo. I just went through the same thing.
I have a catty for you too so when I see you again, we can do the exchange.
