For our challenge this week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar we have the below fun sketch designed by our talented Sonja!

I also created this card for our challenge this week over at the Scrapmagasinet DT blog where we are asking you to create a birthday card. A nice easy challenge so no excuses not to join in this week!

My cheeky monkey is from the Scrapmagasinet set 101 Aper. This is such a fun set with 4 monkey's in various poses. Don't you just love the little faces on his feet! Monkey's party hat is by High Hopes. My images are coloured with a mixture of Prismacolour pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend and also copic sketch markers. Also adding some stickles sparkle! The little fimo buttons were sent to me from my friend Stephanie and again I have used my bargain Sainsbury's beads.

Be sure to check out the gorgeous creations from my DT members at both challenges!
