DigiStamp Boutique...Thank You Monkey

WOW, it feels like such a long time since I've been blogging let alone actually make a card! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas despite the bad weather that hit parts of the UK just before the big day itself.

We had a fantastic family time and James and Sophie seemed very happy with their pressies. It does feel good to get back to some kind of normality and not to be pigging out on naughty foods...healthy meal for us today me thinks!

Anyhoo, it was good to get some crafting done this morning and with a non-christmas make too! I've chosen this cheeky little Thank You Monkey image from the DigiStamp Boutique and he makes a fab thank you card for after the Christmas holidays.

He's been coloured with PM's and the cutting out was going really well until I attempted the inside of his tail and then it went a bit wrong...oopsie!

Glad you had a good Christmas. We fared the storms fairly well with no power cuts and only minimal damage which was easily rectified. You recovered your cutting out of the monkey as I cannot see the mishap on his tail. Wishing you have a crafty New Year. hugs Mrs A.

Hello Donna, glad you had a good Christmas.
Your card is gorgeous, I love the fabulous image so much - in fact I have just been colouring the same image myself! (for a DT card next year!) The papers and layout are wonderful too.
Wishing you all the best for the New Year.
hugs Sue xx
