…what kind of a monster are you?

Sharing a kiddie birthday card featuring a cute stamp from Bugaboo Stamps called Birthday Monsters.

I’ve made this card for my youngest nephew for his first birthday hence all the bright colours.  Now I know there’s no snark on this, I mean what one year old understands snark even if he is MY nephew?!  But I haven’t played at the Sisterhood in forever and Edna has thrown out a Z is for Zaphod Beeblebrox challenge and these monsters look like they’ve come down in the last UFO so I am linking up there anyway.

Over at The Fairy and Unicorn they’re always anything fantasy goes so I know my monsters will also be welcome in their challenge.  And with my two fun designer papers I am also linking up at Just Us Girls.

My card layout follows the current sketch over at Cheerful Sketches, where I’ve the honour of being a guest DT for this month.  Hope you can come play along with this great sketch.  You have until 28 October and can win some prizes too.
