Sparkly Cheeky Monkey Card

Hi bloggers!  I know it is not a regular video day, but we have found we are falling a bit behind so an extra day a week has been added back into the schedule until we catch up.  I hope you will enjoy this cheeky little monkey card video!

The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Gorgeous card Sue, love it, so cheerful.
Your dies on Hochanda last night were full of fun, delight and happy times. Lisa's delight in playing with the waivers obvious, she did you proud.
Elaine, hope Andrew had the drain fitted and is now feeling more comfortable. It must be a constant worry to watch him in pain,my hugs to you, Andrew and the family along with support and prayers.
Rosemary, I can feel your joy about the show coming up, you will have a great time.
Happy to report that work is warmer with the new extra heaters, still not ideal as not all of the office have them but it has been more comfortable the last couple of days but you do feel the difference if you go to a different part of the office.
My colleague at Work has her op date on 30th and she was diagnosed 12 weeks after me, now 22 weeks Down the line, rang the hospital, on the list but no date, my Consuktant is general surgery but specialises breast cancer surgery so that takes priority and he is off sick at moment. Expecting a call today to see if I have been moved to another surgeons list nut may have to go for more ore assessments clinic. Appears I am a complicated patient with other health issues. But the PM says the NHS is not in crises ....
Oh I did feel old yester, got my renewal nitice for driving licence for age 70 as looming in April. Aaaargh.
Hope the comment stays today. My hug basket is full and overflowing. Sending well wishes for poorly and missing friends.

Hello Sue,

Those cheeky monkeys are having a fine time swinging around on their vines. Their expressions tell all and to keep up their strength I see they have their banana snacks. What a fun card that would bring a smile to anyone's face.

Have a wonderful day.


Kitty Davies said...

Morning Sue.
Thank you acheeky little card for all cheeky little ones.
A great video too Thank you.
Take care all and have fun.

BridgetCG said...

Morning Sue, a super cute card this morning, great video, nobody minds extra videos I am sure. Love the background with the words, really different. Have a great day everyone. Bx

Great video again!

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. Hope the 'blog beast' doesn't take my comment today, it's so weird that our comments seem to disappear at the moment, anyway, fingers crossed and here we go. These cheeky little guys found their way into my craft room to celebrate my birthday last month but due to the festivities etc that's as far as they've got, now that nasty flu type virus has had a hold on my keeper for the past fortnight I've just not had the time or energy to think of craft time, I do love these necessities Sue, so very useful and so much fun. After putting my foot down regardless of the cold and my 'issues' I had to insist that I go grab a few necessities yesterday, unfortunately all I came home with was milk and bread ! Now when I said 'necessities' it depends how you see this word bread or the DIY collection, milk or Babys First Pram, but it was soon decided for me as the virus had hit my little craft shop and was closed due to illness, so at least we have hot drinks and toast if the appetite returns ! So thats my comment done and will it stay ?
Whatever your day brings Sue, I hope it's full of love and happiness, off to watch you put this lovely sample together xxx

Dear Sue and Wilsonettes,

More monkeys! More videos! Life is good.
Bags are packed to leave for Florida in 8 hours. Driving with Dad, who is a terrible driver! In the country at least.
Dropping off now so I'd better sleep to stay alert.

So happy for you Rosemary! Hang in there Andrew, like those monkeys.

Good Morning Sue and all. I got the Cheeky monkey set at christmas and have to admit not had chance to have a play. Looking forward to watching the video. I do love how you have used the back ground from the sentiment. Lisa did a wonderful job with die collection last night. Will have to catch up after work to night.
Crafty hugs and well wishes to all.... Wendy

nattyboots said...

Hi Sue and all
A lovely card Sue ,i love these cheeky Monkeys .

I did do an update on Andrews progress late last night ,however it seems to have vanished .

Come Wednesday teatime Andrew had an ultra sound , it appears there is no fluid it is a mass of cells wrapping around the bowel this is causing the swelling ,they also say the bowel was not blocked as originally thought .
He is having bloods taken this morning and seeing his consultant this afternoon ,they advise Chemo ASAP . The Morphine is not helping the pain as much now .
After having digested all what has gone on , i question if the scan results were even looked at prior to yesterday afternoon, it seems to me that 6 whole days have been wasted .

Pam pleased you are a little warmer , i do hope you dont have to start re assessment etc it takes up far too much time . Haha NHS not in crisis ? that's a laugh that is.

Sorry i have not read all the posts , i have such a lot going around in my head

Sending Huggles to all
Elaine H X

Yorkie girl said...

Good morning sue and everyone
What a fun card I still don't own these dies but I do love them and the cards you create using them not watched the video yet but I will
Pam glad you have got some sort of heating sorted all be it only in parts of your office Not good news on the opp front I hope they don't make you go through all the pre opp stuff again the NHS is in meltdown and I don't know where it is going to end got everything crossed for you x
Elaine. Ohh sweetheart I do not know what to say to you this morning my simple words seem so inadequate in the situation you are facing
So all I will say is I am thinking of you all and will pray that Andrew gets the help he needs xx
I send my usual good wishes and hugs to everyone
Take care folks
Theresa G xx

rosemary powell said...

Hi Sue and everyone
Sue such a fun card, children will love it love and huggles
Elaine I know it is hard but stay strong. Am sending love huggles and my thoughts to you all.
Pam it's so annoying when the hospital messes you about, I've had it myself. Keep on phoning and magic seems to happen you get an appointment, it happened to me any way. Glad you are a bit warmer. Don't worry about being 70 it is the new 50!love and huggles.
Theresa,Laine, Crewe Trish love and huggles to you all.
Donita have a safe journey and a lovely holiday you deserve it.
Love and huggles to you all xxxxxx

Hi Sue, I love this card and the die set also the way you have created the background. The bananas are brilliant too, love it all.

Pam - glad you are at least a little warmer. The repairs are certainly taking their time.
Elaine - I think that is a shocking delay with a diagnosis, fingers crossed that Andrew is strong enough to have the chemo asap.
Donita - hope you have an uneventful and safe journey. Enjoy your time in Florida.

Hello Sue
This is such a fun card thank you for your inspiration.I have loved watching Lisa on hochanda.

Elaine have you talked to the nurse in charge of the ward I find they are more informative than the doctors they can also get you an appointment with a doctor my thoughts are with you and your family.

Littlelamb said...

A very cute card Sue. Thank you for sharing and the video. Don’t mind how many videos we have. They are always worth watching. Pam glad you are a bit warmer at work but sorry you are having to wait so long for your op. I am not surprised though. By the time I got a date for my cateract op my pre op assessment ran out the day of the op and I had to have it done again. I have just had to renew my driving licence. You say you feel old๐Ÿ˜€ I had to renew mine because I will be 76 at the end of the month. I did it on line and I received it in less than a week. Elaine I was so sorry to hear your news and hope things can be sorted soon. Still in my thoughts and prayers. Take care. Hugs for all who need them.

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

Lovely fun card. Great video too. Like most people I love watching your videos so there will never be too many! I am at last feeling well enough to have made a card today. It is a ninetieth birthday card for my sisters daughter in laws grandmother. That sounds complicated doesn’t it? I hope she likes it.

Pam, glad your work has heated up a little, even if it’s not ideal yet. So sorry you have so long to wait for your op. X

Elaine, so very sorry to hear about Andrew. I can’t believe it’s taken them so long to find out there’s no fluid. It must be so painful, especially if the morphine is no use. I hope he has now seen his consultant and can start the chemo as soon as possible. Sending hugs. X

Donita, have a safe trip to Florida. X

Love Helen xxx
