Before I get to the details of today's creation I have some really sad news to share. The two baby meerkats that were born on Saturday sadly died on Sunday afternoon. To be honest we were really surprised that Sybil (mom) knew what to do, as they been rescued from an awful place where they were kept for 18 months in separate cat boxes. The first time the were together was when they came to us, so the fact that they mated at all is amazing! Anyhoos we have since found out that they can have 11 litters of up to 5 pups each time in 3 years lol....feel a bit happier knowing that!
On with happier things....
Today is the start of another challenge over at The Stamping Chef. I'm not sure if you know this, but every week on a Wednesday we start a new challenge & its always
you can enter using any image, but if you use one of Tamara's fab images you will be entered twice into the draw for the chance to win 3 fab Stamping Chef images....why not pop over & enter!
I decided to use an older image this time as our Danni loves this image & its her 17th (arghhhh!!) birthday soon, so I have made this for Katie to give to her big sister.
I was thinking of cutting out 17 on my Ecraft & sticking it in the bottom right corner,
but not sure....what do you think?
