Meerkats




  My husband's favourite animal must be meerkats, so  this topper from Creative Crafting World, African Safari is perfect for a card for him. As I don't have the CD Rom I chose cardstock in the  colours of the topper, embossed and layered them on a cream base card. I wish our weather was just a fraction as nice as it looks here, I'm sure we're all fed up with the dull days. I did manage out into the garden for a few hours yesterday, did a lot of clearing up and topped up some containers.

This is a lovely card. I saw it on Crafty Catz challenge 411.
It has been very hot here in Sydney. It has been above normal temperatures for April. It is supposed to be Autumn and cooler weather.

Fabulous card, I hope your husband loves it,
My hubby hates them, there's no way I could make him a card with them on.
If this is Spring, roll on summer
