Monkey business at Incy Wincy and DT call

Hi all,

I will try not to talk about the weather over here on this post as I know most of you are in freezing conditions and I really don't mean to gloat! Honest! Today I took Martha along for her taster session at Daisy's kindy as Martha is starting next Monday. She will just go on Mondays as it means I can do some more tutoring and get all my planning and prep done for my other tutor sessions in the week, but I'm already feeling bad about it. Daisy was 5 months when I had to go back to my teaching job, but I feel bad that Martha is going at 7 months. It is probably because Daisy spent time with her grandparents and other people anyway and Martha only really has me so I am worried how she will be. Probably she will be fine and love it as she loves being with other children.

Anyway, enough babbling and onto the card. It's Monday so it must be Incy Wincy time. This week we are sponsored by the fab

who are offering the winner a $10 CAD gift voucher for their store. The theme this week is Monkeyin' around, so we want to see monkeys on your projects. The DT were lucky enough to be given Mikey the Monkey from DWA and I think he's so cute. This is actually the second card I made for this challenge as I had one done about a week ago and was all ready to show it to the rest of the DT when I suddenly decided I really didn't like it and had to start again. I had a little panic on Saturday when I realised I had forgotten to make another, but I am much happier with this one. The papers are by Dovecraft.
And there's more! A few of our DT have sadly stepped down over the last few weeks and so we are holding a DT call for two new DT members to finish out the term and for maybe longer. If you want to join our friendly team, you need to email Heather and Chris at before Friday 4th Feb, sending 3 samples of your work, a blog link and a few sentences about yourself. The new teamies will be announced on the blog on Sunday.
I'm sorry for the length of this post. I should have warned you to get a cuppa first!
It was so long, I forgot to post the card pic. Ooops! Now all done - sorry!

Aww hun it's so hard to leave them when we need to go back to work, I remember that heart wrenching feeling so well. Try and focus on the positive, Martha will get to socialise with other little one's which will help her grow in confidence & help her in developing new social skills. I think it will be harder for you than for little Martha hun.
You kepp telling us about your glorious weather, we'll get revenge in a few months time, hopefully lol.
As for your card Nikki, I'm sure it's gorgeous but I can't see one!!!

It's so hard to have to leave your little one. I'm praying for you and Martha as you are apart from each other for the first time.

Your card is terrific! I love the texture that the cord adds.
