Monster Party

The monsoon season arrived in London yesterday, so it was lucky that on day two of our Stay-cation City Break we were taking it easy in the flat, detoxing with homemade pizza, cartoons and playing Lego Batman.

I even managed to make a card! Shock! Using this wonderful cheeky Paper Makeup monster stamp from Quixotic Paperie. Oh I just love him to bits - he looks to me like he has just been busted for doing something naughty like having a party at his Mum's house whilst they where on holiday, what do you think?

The yummy paper is from the fabulously cheerful DCWV Citrus stack and the fibres were hand dyed by my own fair hands :)
