My New Cheeky Monkey

Now I dont do digi's very often and I do not associate monkey's with Christmas but when I saw these digi images I just had to have them - they are so cute - so firstly pop over to Polly Craft Shop and view the other images - they really are so adorable. I can think of lots of cheeky children to send these too. So like an over excited child I got out my pens and started colouring. Now I know I am rubbish at colouring, it all looks very flat but I keep on trying, never give up I say. I've coloured the image with Promarkers, added glitter to the star, flower soft 'polar white' on the edge of the boots and hat. Distressed the edge of the dp (I'm rubbish at this too - got the tool - don't know how to use it!) and blue card and added glitter. Stamped a sentiment and that's it - didn't want to add any more. So I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Passion for Promarkers - Animal Crackers
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes
Pollycrafts Monday Challenge - Ho ho ho Christmas In July
Jellypark Challenge - Christmas in July
Cupcake Challenge - Shabby Sparkle
Now I'm off to make some more sugar sea life! Jeanette

Button Birdie - Less Is More

Not going to be able to do much posting this week as it is Michelle & Blue's second wedding reception this weekend and guess who is making 90 cupcakes and the top tier cake!! I'm busy making seashells, lobsters, crabs, starfish & seahorses in coloured chocolate and icing for the cupcakes. So onto the card which I'm entering into Less is More - Button or Ribbon. My little bird is made from a large button which I've cut a wing from card and drawn the legs, beak and tail. Little bit of ribbon across the card and a little bow and that's it! I really really want to added more but I've been good and stopped! Hope you like it. Jeanette
