DeNami Color Challenge #7

Most of the time I really love my job. But I've been in government service for (good grief) 28 years and these days things get a little crazy. There is acommon phrase that's joined our repertoire of phrases: "If no one is going to listen to our expertise (for example), why don't they just get a monkey to do this job?". The shortened phrase now is "just get a monkey".Fortunately, this is an amazing group of people and we help support each other through the craziness. We do great work and in the end we help improve the nutrition of a half million low income children. Not bad.

In the mean time, these DeNami monkey stamps help give us a laugh and relieve some stress so we can keep doing this important work. Who wouldn't benefit from a reminder to just Hang In There. Especially when we remember that we're in this together.

Great colors in the challenge: Brown, Kraft, Cream, Navy and Magenta. The papers are textured Melon Mambo, a beautiful brown from a recent Stampassion card kit, Night of Navy, and Confetti Cream. Embellishments include Brown Sugar Divine Twine and DeNami Espresso Boutique Buttons. I also used Fiskars Upper Crust border punch, and Stampin' Up! Modern Label Extra Large and Decorative Label Extra Large punches. Inks are SU Elegant Espresso and VersaFine Majestic Blue with a few Tombo markers to fill in the guys.

Please check out my Team in Training page to see my progress raising $1500 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Pass it on! Thanks.
