Jumping for joy

Today's card expresses the way I'm feeling at the moment - if you are a regular visitor to my blog you might remember some of the other crafts I enjoy, one of which is the sock monkeys I make and ocasionally sell at craft fairs. Well I have just had an order for 250 of them! A lot of hard work ahead but I'm very happy to take on the challenge although my cardmaking may have to take a bit of a backseat for a while. I've not been told the timescale yet but I know that there isn't an early deadline so I hope to be able to fit in some cards and blogging when I can.

I have used a recent freebie from the fabulous Mo Manning which I colored with Promarkers. I can't remember where the fabric flowers with their glittered centres came from - I've had them for such a long time! - the backing papers are from Making Memories and the sentiment is from Woodwares.
Oh and before I go I'd like to say a huge thanks for the three top 3 places from my last week's challenge entries!
