Summer Monkey

Morning Muffins!

Have you ever started out with an idea for a card, but what you end up with is completely different? Yep, this was going to be for a boy! Thing is, I've fallen in love with this Cotton and Velvet Lace from Sew Sweet and I had an itch to use it! I think it's really pretty - expect to see some more in the next few days! ;)

This cute image is Summer Monkey and is one of this week's releases from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

And because it's Sketch Saturday, I've used this week's fab Sketch from Jo! We're sponsored by The Craft Barn this time; hop on over to Sketch Saturday for all the details and have a peep at what the rest of The Saturdays have come up with to inspire you.

Jane said...

I often start making a card and like you get distracted...vacuuuming, iroing, dusting, taxi-cab service, making beds,....the list goes on!! Don't blame it on the sunshine, don't blame it on the moonlight, don't blame it on the good times...blame it on the fact you're insane! And can you please define Summer Monkey...should read 'Missed Summer, blinked & it had gawn Autumn Monkey'...ok! xxxx
