Just monkeying around :)

A while back I got the 'pre-loved' stamp I used on this card from, I think, e-Bay:
I made a couple of cards, both from Hank and Marvin, our adopted monkeys. One has gone to our young neighbour Abi and Marcel her adopted monkey, and the other is winging (ha, or should that be swinging) its way to Monkey, Darrell and Nigel :) If you like a smile do hop over for a daily look - you'll be hooked!!!

I used:

- A6 white linen card stock

- Penny Black stamp 'Monkey in our Tree' - coloured with Pro Markers and touches of white Gelly Roll pen then the fur on his hat sprinkled with Glamour Dust

- Papers from the Marianne Design 'Merry Little Christmas' paper pack

- red backing card from snippets

- Josy Rose nail heads

- dark green ribbon from stash

Thank you for calling by, and I hope your Christmas preparations are all done - if so, my address should you have some free time is:............................. :)
