Birthday Boy

What a week!!! Lots of short days at work because Tango has been poorly. In case you don't know, Tango is a big ginger cat, the softest, cuddliest cat you could ever meet!!! We think he had been poisoned. I was so worried, that I was getting up in the middle of the night to see if he was OK, bless him. I hate seeing poorly animals especially when it is your own. So off to the vets we went, our vet is about 2 minutes drive from us and Tango cried pitifully all the way there and back as he hates the car!!!! Thankfully he is on the mend and been a very spoilt boy!!
Anyway today I have made this card, just noticed that the buttons look wonky but it is how it has been photographed, really not one of my better skills!!! I love colouring this image but am still not sure what colour monkeys are!! The card papers are a lovely aqua colour but have turned out grey again must get a better camera!!
