Monkey’s Sweetie Bags

For those who follow the adventures of Monkey I have been busy making a few little sweetie bags for him to give as presents ………

Stamping Isn't Really My Thing, But .....

Large Holy and Script Card
I am not a confident stamper, but I am quite pleased with the results I achieved with these two cards.
I stamped two A4 sheets of card to make the backgrounds, the first sheet was made using two festive text stamps and then, when the ink was dry going over it again with a holly design.
Holy Card Close Up
The second sheet was made up of three separate text stamps that could be cut up.
Next followed a lot of fiddle farty mat and layering on red and gold card and completed with red gems and gold buttons.
Holly and Script Crad
Fiddle Farting know no bounds on this final card because I  machine stitched the panels with gold thread and mounted them on a foam pad so extra height. Talk about long winded!
