Monkey Christmas

From glorious sunshine to flooding, what is the weather up to. I'm sure it was just because big boy was on a school trip to the zoo, so only came back slightly soggy. Then small son was worried that the fish would drown as the pond was getting deeper.
Oh well, after being a good girl and trying to get my books up to date ready to do the dreaded tax return I thought I'd make a card. It turned out to be Christmas themed as with water overflowing from the gutters, the summer challenges didn't seem to inspire me.
The stamp is one I have had for a long time, and is by Penny Black. The paper was from an old Dovecraft pack, and the embellishments were ones from my Christmas stash.
