DIY Monkey Birthday Card

Good morning all.  It's been a little while since I posted but it's just been too nice to stay inside, we don't get this good weather very often so we have to make the most of it while it's here.

But because today is Martyns birthday I'd thought I'd share his card.  This is a scheduled posting so at this moment in time we should be on the Motorway heading towards Liverpool.  I gave him the choice,  whatever he wants to to today,  so he has decided that he wants to take a ferry cruise on the River Mersey?  I'm under strict instructions not to sing "Ferry 'cross the Mersey" while we're on the boat, not sure I will be able to resist...

For this card I have used:
Digistamp Boutique - DIY Monkey coloured with copics
(because Martyn works for a tool supply company not because he is good at DIY)
The DP's are Pink Petticoat & DCWV

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
The Crafter's Cafe - Anything Goes
Fab'n'Funky - Walk on the Wild Side

I just have one other photo to share.  Last weekend we went to London and while we we there we went to see "The Crucible" at the Old Vic Theatre starring Richard Armitage (from The Hobbit, Robin Hood, Spooks, North & South) which is the most amazing play I have seen in ages.  After the performance we were lucky enough to meet Richard Armitage, who took time out to talk to us and is just as gorgeous in real life.....

Thanks for stopping by.

Crafty Calendar Challenge - Summertime Fun

Afternoon all.  I hope everyone is well.  Can you believe the first half of the year is over already.  It's the first Saturday in July so we have a new monthly challenge for you over at Crafty Calendar.
Our theme for this month is "Summertime Fun".

  When I think of summertime fun I think of the seaside so for my card I have used an image by Squiggle Fly called "Sally & Bella Head To The Beach" coloured with copics.
The DP's are from the Dovecraft "Sugar & Spice" paper pack which I think give the card a warm sunny feeling.

We are sponsored for this challenge by

Squiggle Fly who are offering the winner 3 digital images of their choice.

Pop over to Crafty Calendar and join us in our Summertime Fun challenge this month and check out the gorgeous DT creations.

Thanks for stopping by.
