Monkeying around!

I thought I would take a break from making christmas cards so here is a card I have made for my nephews birthday next month!

I have used one of my favourite new stamps, the changito birthday monkeys, coloured in with my whispers pens. Matted onto DCWV CS. The background paper is also from DCWV, corrugateddark brown card, and the sentiment was created on my dymo machine, matted onto CS. Three buttons, threaded with green satin ribbon to finish! Hope he likes it!

I start back at university today after the summer holidays. I am doing a part time Masters degree 2 days per week (as part of my job), but I also work 3 days a week, so there may be a little less time for crafting once they start handing out the essays! :-(
