2 cards and a monkey!

I have had a bit of peace and quiet today as Alex went back to work, so I have spent some time in my craft room!

These are todays creations!



I used my new stamp from Lelo Designs, which I love!
Coloured him in using my Koh I Noor pencils and Sansador.

Challenges:
ABC Challenge (The backing paper contains kisses)
Allsorts Challenge (Sketch & New/old - Mine being new stamp!)

I have made this next card for my mums Boyf's mum, Helen, who we stay with when we visit. This is my first attempt at an easel card, and it deffo wont be my last! (I have cheated though, I used two 6x6 cards instead of cutting card!).



Challenges:

Moving along with the Times - Sketch that has been used before - I chose Challenge 19

And finally, my little brothers sock monkey!



I am in the process of making myself one, and I have set up an exchange for these cuties on Craft Bubble. If you wish to join in my exchange, please email me for more details! (katie@sainty.co.uk)

fab cards Katie. I always use 2 cards to make an easel card too - just find it easier that way, hmm maybe I'm a lazy crafter!

Love the sock monkey. What a cutie
