Boys Are A Gift!

It’s Wednesday, and this week I made this adorable little boy monkey holding onto his favourite teddy bear called Boy Binky Monkey – Q118 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) with Boys Are A Gift – J011 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. He’s holding onto his favourite little blanket! Did you have a favourite little toy or blanket that you carried everywhere with you as a child too?

I kept this card very simple this week. I stamped the images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Then I fussy cut around the image leaving a small white border. I die cut a large circle using My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles and then cut a few smaller circles from the same background paper. Finally, I popped up the image and the sentiment and add in a few gems to finish it off.
