Mini Monkey and a touch of spring

I say a touch of spring with my tongue firmly in my cheek, yesterday we had a four seasons day here - sleet, sunshine, snow and wind - unbelievable! Good news though, the socks arrived and they are fab, such a bright and colourful mix! I'm really going to enjoy making these ones, I started out yesterday with this mini one made from a toddler sized sock - so cute!

Today's card is one of my own images April - available here - she has been coloured with Promarkers and teamed with Basic Grey papers for a fresh spring card. I borrowed the big flowers idea from my sister Gillian who made some similar ones on a recent card, thanks Gill :o)
