Secret Crafter DT - In The Jungle

Hello everyone,
Wow I've had a busy week with the house, but its on the market now. Board went up today and now just a case of sit back and wait. Hopefully being a weekend peeps will be out looking. And as its another Saturday, its your turn to look at the new challenge today from The Secret Crafter. Wendy has come up with a fab theme, "In The Jungle". I instantly new what image to use for this challenge. Denise from Whimsy Stamps was kind enough to send me some RAK images of this cute little fella (Whimsy Monkey). I've been wanting to colour him for ages and this was just the incentive I needed. The backing paper is from the new Lawrence Lleywelyn Bowen range. I've coloured the monkey with Promarkers and and stipled round the image with Chalk Ink Pads. Added Stickles all over the card and a clear sentiment. 

The DT have come up trumps again and remember you will be entered into the Monthly Draw for goodies from Wendys Shop!!
So please stop by The Secret Crafter Challenge Blog and lets see your wonderful creations.
Hope to find a bit more crafting time next week, just never seems to be enough hours in the day right now. 
Have a lovely weekend everyone and thanks for stopping by!
