Monster Birthday!!

Happy Sunday everyone!

I do hope you've all enjoyed your weekends?  Shame the weather has been soooo bad but I guess that's what we can start to look forward to now ay!!  Never mind, means we have no excuse but to stay in and craft, yaaaaaaaay!!

I've made a card tonight for my best friend's son, Finley, who is going to be 3 next week.  I didn't know what card to make him, I was going to use Magnolia's Pirate Edwin but Finley's only going to be 3 and that seemed far too grown up.  So I had a nose through your blogs and found inspiration from Lisa (aka Wishcraft) - thank you soooo much Lisa!!  And as it turns out, the digi Lisa (and I!) used was created by my Sketch Saturday Teamie Paula (Pollycraft) - talk about small world, lol!  So here's my card, what do you think?

Close up of Pollycraft's Critters and Cogs 'Fluffy' coloured with my Copics and Derwent Coloursoft Pencils...

Inside of card, sentiment stamps from Woodware Monsters...

Side view, still haven't mastered this shot yet but 'Fluffy' and the 3 have been sticky fixed up honest!!...

I think he's everso cute even though he's a monster - I bet he's gives great cuddles, lol!!

That's it from me tonight, I think I'll be having an early one.  Had lots of fun last night with my netball girlies and surprisingly didn't feel too hung over this morning but had to get up early (well 8am!) to go on an umpire refreshing course so I'm feeling quite tired now - poor old bird!!

See you all soon

This is such a cute monster card! I'm giggling as I look at it! Love what you've done with his eyes and his tummy. This 3 year old will love this! The colors and papers your used are so great for a toddler!
