greeting cards



This was made for my neighbour. Some people like bunnies, some people like cats or dogs, and some people, like my neighbour, love meerkats. In fact, making this card for her was the main reason for picking up this stamp set.

Doing all this catch-up card blogging is rather fun. It was a bit of a daunting task what with the pile of cards made during colouring challenges and not blogged, but it’s nice to go back and look at cards that were made several months (or more) ago: I’d forgotten how cute these meerkats were!

  1. Super cute set isn’t it – and nice that CB are back up and running again. I do like the colours on this and your colouring of the meerkats is really great. Your neighbour is bound to love it! We call my Mum the Meerkat as she’s always jumping up out of her seat and having a look around if she hears something on the street outside – nosey I guess! 😀
