I've been so busy making monkeys and covering shifts for sick colleagues that it's been a whole week since I last blogged! The monkey pile is growing and the orders keep coming in which is great but doesn't leave me much time for anything else. The new baby I blogged about in my last post was brought round for a quick visit yesterday but unfortunately I was at work so missed seeing him. Fortunately Neil was at home and took a few pictures for me - not quite the same as cuddles but will have to be enough for now! Here is baby Thomas with his new monkey:

Just managed to fit in one quick card as respite from sewing and this is it - LOTV image coloured with Promarkers, papers from Basic Grey, lace from my stash and a button which I coloured with Promarker and distressed with Stayzon ink to tie in with papers. That's all for now folks - have to get back to my monkeys :o)

Crafty Purple Frog - Anything goes 
Crafty Ribbons - Birthday
I Love Promarkers - 3 different papers
