Forever Friends Bear!

First off I want to wish you all a very Happy & Spooky Halloween!
We don't celebrate it at all in our house, but Katie wanted to carve a pumpkin with her Dad so hopefully they will be able to get one on their way home tonight!!

I also wanted to show you a picture that was taken of me on Saturday....not a very nice pic of me but just look at what I'm holding!!!

He was called Alfie & he is a 2 year old Meerkat!! I nearly died when the bloke said do you want to hold him!! I only wanted a photo of him lol!! He was squeaking lots & kept trying to pinch my glasses...I don't like the picture I look scared, but I wasn't! I think I was just in shock!! lol sooooooooo sweet but very smelly!!lol

Anyhoos I have made a card today, I have loads of Forever Friends stamps that I haven't used for an absolute age! So I decided to dig one out & have a play!
