Apologies for being such a bad blogger recently, I've been very busy making sock monkeys since setting up my new online shop but loving that they are proving so popular :o) Here are some of the latest additions:

Now for the point of today's post, it's my design team card for this week's new challenge at Charisma Cardz where the theme this time is Travel. I have used a Gorjuss stamp and combined it with a Stampin Up image of the Eiffel Tower. I coloured my Gorjuss stamp with Promarkers and used chalks to make a soft sky behind the images. The papers are from a set by Cosmo Cricket and the sentiment was from a free set which I got with Homemade magazine a month or two ago.
We are sponsored this week by Simon Says Stamp and Pink Cat Studio so pop on over to Charisma and enter the challenge for your chance to win!

Thank you so much for playing in my Anything Goes over at Amusing Challenges. I'm just sorry that it's taken me so long to visit your blog!

Sweet card (love your idea!) and I especially love those sock monkeys. Really fun patterns. My daughter made a few when she was 12 and it really was such fun.
