Not My Circus...

Just a quick one from me today as I've 'borrowed' Chris's lap top (it's SO not like him to put it down, it's like his mobile phone, it never leaves his side - strangely enough though it never rings when it's me calling, but that's another story) Anyway the challenge this week at Stampotique  has been chosen by the fabulous Jackie, and she has picked 'animals'
I have to thank our lovely Carol for alerting me to this saying last week. I'd never heard it before but it cracks me up :-)
Flying Monkey has been stamped and coloured with Prismacolor pens. He has glittery wings too but that's not showing up so well. I think all circus flying monkeys should have glittery wings :-).
As a member of the design team we have to swear an oath not to have a favourite stamp. But if we didn't Roc's new Ellie would be fighting for the title. Can you tell that she's really not impressed with the monkeys!
All stuck down in the book to keep it nice rather than filing in the big cardboard box in the corner.

My computer should be back again at the weekend, but I've been told that if it goes again I will need a new one, so I've started to look at new ones. They have certainly changed since I got my old thing. I have Windows 7 on mine, and at least I know where to look for things on this. It's Windows 10 now, and it seems that I've been lucky missing out on Windows 8!
I hope you join in with our challenge this week, and thanks very much for looking x

I'm also entering this into the Craft Stamper challenge as this month it's a technique challenge to use pens and/or pencils.


  1. Lovely card with a great saying. Hope you soon get a good computer. Windows 10 is miles better than 8. (Well, anything has to be better than Windows 8!) Hugs, Valerie

  2. Fab card Sue, I love that saying! I think men suffer sometimes from selective deafness hmmmm.....

    Big hugs

  8. Great page Sue, love those flying monkeys and Ellie is adorable! I have that saying as a stamp in one of Tim's sets (think it's in the Life Quotes stamp set ) and it makes me giggle every time I read it!

  9. Great card great quote .... Such fun!

  10. Fabulous! I love your circus monkeys... they made me laugh out loud! I'd not heard that phrase either until it came out on Tim's last stamp release!
