Am I too Late?

It's been tough but my new card is ready!

When I read the theme for the Incy Wincy Challenge this week I decided not to enter for I thought I had no digi with a monkey on it. Then, looking through my files, I found a super-cute monkey and started thinking about entering the challenge.
When I made the Top Three I decided I had to enter and started printing and coloring my monkey.

This morning I woke up late, very late (I never sleep until late in the morning, I love to wake up early when everybody is still sleeping) and after my coffee I switched the computer on and had a look at the various Challenges I had planned to enter this week and... Gosh! I had just 4 hours to make my monkey card. It was colored but I still had no idea of the way I could assemble it.
It's been quite easy, the biggest problem was to find a funny sentiment and - being not English - it's been even more difficult.

But I'm done and here's my card:
This funny monkey was a freebie from Dustin Pike and in the original digi it was collecting leaves but I thought it was perfect to fill the basket with hearts.
I used watercolor pencils as usual and a card and patterned papers from DCWV. I found the brad (Making Memories) while digging in my stash: I bought a set of them years ago: it makes me feel good to be able to use somemthing so old because my temptation is always to save something I like for any future need...

Well, better hurry up and enter the card to the Challenges (yes, I've discovered that the theme can be suitable for some other challenges!).

Fingers crossed that I'm still in time to enter my card!
