Hang around with me :D

Have you ever seen anything so cute :D  I love this image Birthday Monkey from All Dressed Up.  He's makes a great card for a young boy - or maybe even a girl :D

I decided to use him for my inspiration for our new blog challenge starting today.
Both he and the toucan have been coloured with Copics and the branches in ProMarkers.  I';ve also sketched in some could in the back ground with a blue ProMarker.

I've kept the design very clean and simple - I wanted him to be the centre of attention.

The Kraft card and image have been hand cut (I've no die this bit to cut this shape) and I've distressed the edges with vintage photo ink from Tim Holtz.

The only embellishment I used were some black gems.

We've two challenges currently running the anything goes challenge on the blog and the PINK Facebook themed challenge.

We've also a DT call for the blog challenge started today we'd love to see you apply

Hi Andrea! Love your coloring! Just curious...I am very interested in trying out for one of the DT openings. Is it necessary to have a website in order to be considered? Kindest regards, Jane
