Meerkats - Simples!!

Hiya folks!

Forgive the naff title, but when you have an advert with Meerkats and a catchphrase it tends to stick!! LOL. Hope I find you all well today? The sun is out (for a change) so is my washing again! Hoping to dry something today - failed miserably yesterday. It was a lovely morning, much like today, so I hung out the washing and went off to do the weekly shop. And as last week - it blooming well rained while I was out, and for most of the day afterwards!! I hate our weather here sometimes! So unpredictable. Enough!

On to my card for today then. I am lucky enough to be sponsoring the 'Birthday' themed challenge at Digital Tuesday this week with my wee digi-shop, Delicious Doodles. One winner will get to choose four of my digi's to play with - lucky them!! My newest creation is this sketch style image of a wee group of Meerkats:

These guys are so cute IRL. I saw them while at the Black Isle Wildlife Park a couple of weeks ago. I snapped loads of piccies (so quick and shy!) and this image is the combo of what I snapped. I followed a sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp for my layout:

The cardstock was printed with a rippled sand image. There is a backing paper from Joanna Sheen with Meerkats on it, the flower and dots papers are from Funky Hand. I used these papers fro my flowers, with copper brads for centres. A quick sentiment, and there you have it - simples! (sorry, lol)

I am also entering this in the challenge at SSDS, which is 'Animals', and at The Pink Elephant where the colour theme is 'Brown'.

So folks, get on over to Digital Tuesday and enter your birthday cards! You may be the lucky winner of FOUR of my images!!
