...ANOTHER 2 months and some sock monkeys!

Hello everyone!

The blog scheduling went well, didn't it......! lol

I can tell you that in between looking after sick children, I have managed to do a little papercrafting and sewing , just not got it posted yet.  Here's a few of the cards and some sock monkeys:

For this card I used the Long Fellows hostess set from Stampin' Up and the sentiment was coloured using Stampin' Up markers (I love them!) The balloon is a cuttlebug kids die cut, embossed with the swiss dots folder and edged with stardust stickles.

I used an Elzybells stamp for this card and the spotty paper is doodlebug.  

I made this bag ages ago and found the photos when transferring them from one computer to the other.  I used adhesive backed funky foam for the embellishements and cut them out using the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' die set.

My Mum went to Australia for 6 weeks in September and I made these sock monkeys for her to take to my little nephews.  I made the hats from Ikea's fleece blankets.

This was the first monkey I made for them but it turned out a bit girly, so Phoebe claimed it!

At the minute I'm decorating a wooden advent calendar and I'd better get a move on since the first day will be tomorrow!  I'll post pics of it as soon as I can and also pics of the mini book I gave a sneak peek of, in the last post.

I'll try and be back soon, thank you for bearing with me  :)

Hi Sarah,
I thought I had left a comment...apologies :)
Lovely to see you again in Blogland, missed your wonderful cards and sewing.
The sock monkeys are so cute and beautifully made, a great selection of cards too...the softly inked circle on the first caught my eye, lovely highlight for the hearts :)
