Magnolia DT Monkey + 'Shrunk' Parrot Card
Here is another Magnolia DT card using stamps from the new Pets and Animals 09 Collection. This is just the cutest monkey and he is great to colour. I was also sent the parrot in my DT kit and there was no room to fit him on this card so I decided to stamp him on shrink plastic so he could sit on the vines! The flowers have been punched out and I have used vellum for some of them.
Have a fabby weekend!Supplies

Magnolia DT Pets and Animals 2009 Collection
My latest Magnolia DT kit arrived this morning, I think mine must have been held up in the post as the rest of the DT seem to have received their kits last week!
Wow the new stamps are fabulous and I just love this cute little lion and couldn't wait to ink him up and make a card. I love his little paws at the back they look so cute and I have given him a very shiny nose with Glossy Accents.
I have been a bit slack with card making over the weekend as I am still trying to stick to the diet and also get a bit fitter!! We went swimming again on Sunday and I managed 50 lengths this week so I am quite pleased with myself!!
