monkey cake

Its supposed to be a monkey my granddaughter is monkey mad so i bought a cake tin ages  ago
it is for her 9th birthday this week ,i tried to copy picture but was a bit hard

Thank you card for Vee

This is the card that i made for Vee as a thank you for my stamps i received from her for joining in her guessing game, it was fun Vee. I coloured the girl in with promarkers, ,the pink background was a freeby ,i dont now were from it is really velvety to touch cut out the window with the new die i bought with birthday money and put azitate inside it and cut the butterfly's with Marianne Stewart punch,& the  2 flowers with another punch.

Botticelli Bag

This is a Botticelli bag that i just made.I got the pattern off eBay and thought i would try it out. It comes in to sizes this is the smaller size. have lined it in a blue lining and made  a ball of lace gathered up and sew it to top of bag and found an old silver  button in my button tin and put in middle.
do you think i should do a smaller lace as hubby says its to Big
I must start making more cards, haven't had much of a chance to do any,
