The Monkey’s 2018 Christmas Card

Every year I try to come up with a new Christmas card for The Monkeys that captures their character and sense of fun to send to their biggest fans and commentors …… and this is what I have come up with this year ……… the photos developed by Aldi for just 5p each plus P & P – bargain!
The theme, a puzzle to guess the seasonal phrase  …… “Baa Humbug”, an idea I have used before …… last year I think it was “Jingle Bells”  It takes all my brain power to firstly think of a phrase that can then be expressed with a series of weird and wonderful props to convey the message!
Once the card was mat and layered on red and silver and then faux stitched round the edges, I added an assortment of silver stars to break up the white background.
And finally, all the fake fur on The Boyz outfits was filled in with an ample dusting of translucent micro fine glitter.  Another hopefully much anticipated card done, and already I am thinking of a phrase for next year ……. unless we have some snow and then it will be back to snowy poses akimbo!

Oh, my, I haven't a clue! But what fun to try to figure it out. You're so creative. Hope you have a very merry Christmas.

I love my card from the boyz (and you lol) it's one I look for each year!
Hope you all have the perfect Christmas with your family

I always look forward to my card from the boys and it is always given a good slot on the mantelpiece rather than being shoved into the card holder. I hope my monkey card reached you before the big day. I have kept every card I have had from the boys and I always love looking at them each year when I put the new one up.

I am hoping to get back to blogging in the new year so that will hopefully also involve more blog visiting and commenting.

Happy New Year
