Mikey the Monkey

Earlier this month Joni at Inktegrity had a contest Called "What can I say?" and to enter you had to come up with a saying(s) for this picture:

I just thought he was so cute and to me it looked as though he was swinging from a branch, so one of the ideas I submitted was "Swinging by with a Valentine hi".  Joni picked my saying as one of the three to be used with the image ~ how exciting is that!?!  Joni sent each of the 3 winners their own Mikey the Monkey set before it was released to the public.  Unfortunately I had  quite a busy week, so I only got him printed and colored earlier this week and finally got around to putting him on a card tonight ~ so here's Mikey.......

I picked up the new Ka-Zoo papers from K & Company (they are just adorable) the other day with a 50% off coupon (gotta love those) and I thought these two papers were perfect for Mikey.  Very non-traditional Valentine's Day colors, but I like it.

 I am entering this card for the following challenges:
