Hi Coops

Great monster card. I don't know why you hate it so much .. .. perhaps its because monsters always make us feel uneasy LOL!!!

coldwaters2 said...

Lol, you are to hard on yourself Nic, I am not a lover of these little critters/monsters but then that is the fun of crafting, being able to use an image you may not particularly like and design something that is terrific which is exactly what you have done with this character, the papers and design look great which also helps that monster look rather good.
