Sunday themed challenge #28

Morning everyone and welcome to a nice relaxing Sunday morning.

I'm off to my pals for coffee in a bit - she's been away at her mum's all week so we've some catching up to do.

Was it me yesterday or was there precious little on the TV? Sat down to watch an episode of NCIS only to discover we'd seen it before (once or twice!) so retired to bed with a book!

Anyway, since my debut as temporary Design Team Member yesterday it falls to me to set the Sunday challenge for the week too. These themed challenges are always set on a Sunday and can really be about anything from a recipe to a simple (or complicated) theme. Since it's my first themed challenge I thought I would be gentle with my fellow crafters and came up with "Monkeying around"!!!! Interpret how you wish but . . . I just had to use the fab Changito stamps recently acquired in Florida - I made the Orange and white one first but then decided to have another go with the lovely "Drive me Happy" Changito too. And before any eagle eyed readers point out my spelling mistake . . . Changito's registration number is: M0(zero) NKY

Materials used:
  • Red C6 card and matching envelope
  • Double sided tape
  • Gilding flakes
  • Driving Changito image and matching sentiment stamped in memento tuxedo black on to white card
  • Pro Markers and Atyou Spica glitter pens to colour image
  • Gold mirri card circle
  • Faux gemstones to accent

Materials used:
  • QVC card and envelope (covered with white card to disguise the DISGUSTING design on the original!)
  • Post It notes to mask
  • Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door and Tea Dye to colour Changito and coconuts!
  • Changito jungle images and sentiments

Have a wonderful Sunday and feel free to stop by and tell me your plans for the day.
