Snow Chains and Sunglasses

Hello.  Welcome.  It's been a busy, fun, eventful day.  At one point I donned the ice grippers and sunglasses and all was beautiful in the world.  Then the sun went in and it was time for a cup of hot chocolate.  Ahhhhh,  the joys of winter.  

And so to the crafty delights.   

It's a christmas monkey!  Starting to like this die.  Lots!  Cheery Lynns Yay! Monkey cut from green patterned paper and paper pieced with red.  I stamped Rubber Dance don't open before christmas and embossed with green tinsel embossing powder.  I cut using Cheery Lynn Old Barn Board die. 

I cut a tag using the same pp as Monkey and smeared on some Pine Needles distress.  Should have used more to give better contrast......  The parcels are cut from a piece of christmas pp and some wool.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
