Crafty Monkey's Challenge 5 - Christmas

Here is my card for this weeks challenge over at Crafty Monkey's. Our theme for this challenge is Christmas. If you do not have the appropriate stamp we look forward to seeing your hand drawn work.

We have a great prize this week (see picture below) that has been very kindly donated by Bernie. We also have some stamped images of some Alota kids which have been stamped by my Mum included in this prize.
We would also like to welcome Hollie and Lauren as our guest designers for our challenge. Thank you both for your gorgeous cards.

The layout of my card was inspired by a sketch by Mumur. Do you like my new stamp as this is from a set which my Mum bought for me at The Range this week. The set is called "Christmas Cute 'n' Cuddly. I have coloured my image using my whisper pens and added a little sparkle using Stickles. The paper and fibres are from Mum's stash.


Me and Hannah received this great award from Barb earlier in the week for our blog Crafty Monkey's. Thank you Barb.

I hope you will join in our challenge... please tell your friends and family.
love,
