It's been a while since I've posted, but I've been a bit busy and haven't had a moment free. We had our department farewell, which was fabulous, I've attached some pictures below. But first about my card.

This is one of the super cute images from Ladybug Crafts Ink, and it's called Buttercup In the Doghouse. I made it with a new home in mind, thought it would be perfect with the sold sign, lol. I struggled to get a decent photo though, clearly my photography course is not helping. Kerry rescued it for me with photoshop, but in real life this card is SO cute.

As usual I coloured the image with my prisma pencils and blended it with sansador, then cut it out with a square nestie die. I hand-wrote the 'sold', which was luckily just one word, I would not be brave enough to write much more than that. Unlike Paula who does the most beautiful hand written sentiments.

On to our farewell. This is the main entrace to the lodge, it is really pretty.

This was the Cheetah run. You cannot image how fast these animals are if you have not seen it yourself.

Here I am with Tarzan the Cheetah and then of course Bumblebee the python, she was adorable.

Now I am done and hope you all have a great week. I am looking forward to having a realiable internet connection again one day. The way I have to work at the moment, losing my connection every 5 minutes is driving me insane. I want to visit my favourite blogs and leave you all some comments, but it's not possible at the moment :-(

Take care.

Gorgeous card Meahni, your card below inspired me with one of my latest cards, after seeing the image I had to get that cute little elephant!! I'm elephant mad!
You're very lucky to be able to see such amazing wildife in their natural surroundings.
Gorgeous buttercup card! I have this image too but am yet to make a card with her. I have a little idea for her dog house though. Love the yellow, I wouldn't have thought of yellow but it's lovely!

Oooh LOVE this one Meahni!! The flower DP behind the image gives a great grounding effect! Love these colors too! Buttercup is SO cute! Would have NEVER thought of the SOLD sign. You're too clever!
The pictures are AWESOME!! I know you wanted to bring all of the animals home didn't you? Glad you had such a great time!
