What an absolute cutie and what an unusual pet! How lovely to have a drawing of him too, which I must say is coloured beautifully! Thank you for joining us at Try It On Tuesday! Chrisx

Not an average pet that is for sure! He is super cute though and so is your card! Love the blended sky and you did a great job with the grass area too. Thanks for joining us over at Seize the Birthday and using our topping too!
