WHO'S A LITTLE MONKEY........................LOL!

Evening all

Hope all are well on this freezing cold Wednesday and it's only gonna get colder brrrrrrr. Well I have been a busy bee today, doing the last of the Xmas shopping and wrapping up all the pressies. I have spent 4 hours on my hands and knees wrapping, cutting and sticking and now my wee house looks like a bomb as dropped lol! Never mind at least it's done and now I can enjoy the rest of my week's holiday :o)

So onto today's card and this is for my Son George who will be 17 tomorrow!. My daughter Bex chose this little fellow as a joke cause we have always called him monkey bum and don't ask us why lol. This image is from Digistamp Boutique and I have used some gorgeous papers from MME Fine and Dandy "True Blue" and some card Candy, another simples card!

This cheeky chappie is going into the following challenges :-
Sketch Saturday # 133 ~ Fab Sketch

Hi Vicky great card and love the colours you have used and your layout. I did a big Christmas shop today on my day off but could have done with another couple of hours but had to be back to see Ben's nativity play. Haven't even thought about wrapping! Enjoy the rest of your week now all the hard work is done. Sarahxx
