Monkey Birthday Card at 7 yrs - Give a Poem a Home

My collection of poems is ever growing.  I have always loved to write so I welcome the continual challenge!  I considered freelancing for fun and tried to find a greeting card company to accept my submissions, but my search didn't go very well!

Oh well, more free poems for you! This little card, I made for my eldest nephew's recent 7th birthday. He was born in the year of the monkey, so when this monkey digital stamp was offered as a freebie from Dustin Pike, I had to snag it!  When he offers freebies, he tends to offer both an uncoloured black and white image and a coloured one.  Normally, I like to colour the images myself, but I was in a rush this time, so I used the pre-coloured one.

It was absolutely perfect for my nephew's birthday!  Like, I said, I was in a rush so I kept the design simple.  Simple works best for masculine cards anyway! Where my contribution to this card comes in is the poem on the inside.

This birthday poem is for a 7 year old, but it could work for an 11 year old too!  It goes like this:
To a little monkey turning seven,
Hope your birthday is pure heaven.
With lots of smiles and lots of fun,
Laugh and play ‘til the day is done!
Happy Birthday from us to you.
Hope you enjoy the whole day through.


  1. I think greeting card companies should be lining up for your beautiful work. This card is nothing short of FABULOUS. I would buy it in a heartbeat.


  2. Oh your card is super adorable.
    As for your poem, it is better than any one I have read in a bought card, love it.


Thank-you for sharing your thoughts.
