Hi Peeps! Been a busy, busy weekend.  I received a voucher last Christmas to go for 'Afternoon Tea' at the Midland Hotel, Manchester. Yesterday was the day it was finally used! Things to seem to have been put on the back boiler this year, but, moving forward now.

This little sweetie lives at Bugaboo Stamps and he's called Birthday Monkey Topper. I've decided to follow the sketch this week instead of the weekly challenge. I've fussy cut the monkey/ballon. Coloured with Copics. The sky  is Distressed Ink ~ storm sky and I've used a Memento Dual Marker to go round the images so that there  isn't a white mark showing and also made the string something like the image that attaches the balloon with the same pen. Sentiment Computer. Papers stash.
