Crafty Monkey's Challenge 1 - Wild Animals

It is such an exiting day for me today as this is my card to show you for our first challenge at Crafty Monkey's. The theme for Challenge 1 is Wild Animals. Our challenge is fortnightly so you have until Friday 11th July to join in. A random winner will be chosen on this day. Remember if you do not have the appropriate stamp we look forward to seeing your own hand drawn designs. If you do not have a blog to display your cards please email a picture of your work to either myself or Hannah. More details can be found on the Crafty Monkey's blog.

We have a great prize this week of a Magnolia Bandage Tilda stamp which has very kindly been donated by Jacqui - Cats Whiskers.

The stamp I used is Leo from High Hopes and I coloured him with my Whisper pens. I chose the papers and ribbon from Mum's stash and printed the sentiment out from our computer. My Mum helped me with the layout and cutting of the nestabilities.

Hope you like it and will join in the fun.

Thank you Jacqui for also sending us this gorgeous card and also the Magnolia stamps for me and Hannah. I can't wait to use my new stamp so look out for it soon on a future challenge card.

I have some exiting news to share... My friend Hannah and I will be running a challenge blog just for kids - Crafty Monkey's. This will be especially for kids under the age of 16. The challenge will run every fortnight starting next Friday, 27th June around about tea time with some fab stamped images to be won. We hope that you will encourage your children to get crafty and come and join in the fun. If they do not have the appropriate stamps for a theme we welcome them to create their own designs. If you don't have a blog don't worry you can email us your cards.

Happy Father's Day - Cute Card Thursday

Here is the card I have made my Dad for Fathers Day. He has been warned by Mum not to check my blog. I have made this card for Cute Card Thursday Challenge. The cute image is from my Mum's friend Jakki. Thank you Jakki, I love this cute papilio boy. I have coloured him in my Dad's favourite football teams colours - West Ham United.

Thank you to Karin for sending my Mum and me such wonderful cards, images and flowers. It was a lovely surprise to find this when I got home from school today.

Thank you

Thank you so much Claire for sending these goodies to Zoe in my swap package. You really made my little girls day. I would also like to thanks Dawny for her kindness in sending the cute little alphabet stamps too. Zoe has also made a great swap friend Hannah with the added bonus in that I have made a great friend with her Mum Debbie too.
