Double Monkey Business

There are two bits of Monkey business to talk about today! Number one, A DT sample which I made for Stamp Addicts, using their Gorilla stamp set. The gorilla, the palm leaves and the greeting were all part of the set, and I coloured them all in using promarkers.

The leaves are indivdual stamps so I stamped and cut out four of them so that I could make the palm tree. There isn't a tree trunk in the set, but you can make one really easily by doing a bit of 'wobbly' cutting on brown card and adding a bit of black doodling for effect.

I am sure that I will get lots of use out of this set as I know a lot of little monkeys..........which leads me on to monkey number two........the infamous Brion the dog. For those of you who haven't seen my older posts, Brion is a rescue dog that my parents adopted nearly a year ago now.

When they first got  him, he escaped from the garden and, having been dispeared for a few hours, was eventually found down a whole, 50 feet away from my parents house. Since then, there have been a few more 'escape'  incidents resulting in a complete refencing of my parents garden, which we thought had done the trick........until this week.

Can you believe that the little devil chewed though a fence post and pushed his way through the gap, followed by a 2 hour jaunt, whilst my mum and dad were frantically searching for him!

So it looks like there will be another mega fencing session....all in aid of keeping Brion contained. I can't believe that a dog can actually chew his way through a fence post......although I have to admit that he can crush a football in less  than a minute! Talk about jaws of steel and like I said.....definitely a little monkey...........
