For my little monkey!

Hi all,

Well, only Friday to go and then it's the weekend! It's been raining for most of the week, so Martha and I have found indoor things to do. She's now wanting to walk and tows me around everywhere. Tomorrow, Daisy isn't in preschool, so we are going to meet up with some friends for lunch and a play.
Here's my weekly post to enter into the Stamp Fairy challenge. They have a fab sketch this week and as Martha is 1 (how did that happen?) next month, I thought I would make her a card. I'm not sure if it is a bit too old for her, but as hubby said, the card is more for us than her as she won't have a clue what is going on and will probably just want to take it apart. I used this fab Stamp Fairy monkey image. I printed him 3 times and then decoupaged him for depth. The papers are also by Stamp Fairy and I thought I would add a bit of texture with corrugated card and tried to add to a jungle feel with the leaves.
