3 Cheeky Monkeys

Hi again.
As I said in my previous post I have made some thank you cards for my nephew's ushers and Best Man.

This is cheeky monkey #1 for the Best Man - my middle son Aaron. I have followed the sketch at Simon Says Stamp. The 'cheeky' image is from Digi Stamp Boutique - available here - coloured with Promarkers. I have also followed the recipe challenge at ASFOS - 3 DP's & 3 Buttons. Now I am being a little cheeky here myself as I am also going to enter this into the 'wedding' theme at Totally Papercrafts lol!!! and the 'celebrations' challenge at Stamp Something.

This is cheeky monkey #2 for my oldest son - Jamie who will be one of the ushers on Saturday. For this one I have followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday. Image from DSB and coloured with PM's . Sentiment computer generated. I have added a metal star and would like to enter the challenge at SCSC

And finally this is cheeky monkey #3 for the other usher - Ryan. Here I have followed the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Image from DSB and coloured with PM's. Star die cut from Slice.

This used in all cards
DP's - Tinker & Co
Brushed Corduroy distress ink
Twine and buttons from stash.

Thanks for popping over.
Have a wonderful day.
