Pink and Girly

Well I hope it's a bit nicer wherever you are this morning - here the weather is yukky, pouring rain and wind - definitely more March than May! I apologise for my lack of posts recently, I have been concentrating mostly on my new blog/shop for selling my Sock Toys which  along with much more overtime at work has left me with no time for cardmaking. I'm taking a little time off next week and plan to get back to my desk and my patterned papers for a day or two leaving the monkeys to do their own thing for a short while!

These three monkeys were commissioned by
Little Monkeys Nurseries
, Edinburgh

Today's card is for the new challenge this week at Charisma Cardz where the theme is Pink & Girly, the cute image comes from Digi Doodle shop, one of this week's sponsors, and I coloured it with Promarkers. Papers are Basic Grey and the flowers were die cut with my new Cheery Lyn die Frangipani with Leaves. Sentiment tickets and die are from Whimsy stamps.
