Welcome back to my corner of the world
As you know we are in the middle of Sale-a-bration, Stampin’ UP!’s annual celebration where you can get FREE stuff when you place on order at my on-line store. One of the most popular stamp sets is ‘The Gang’s All Meer’ with the most adorable Meerkats.
The images are just perfect for coloring and today I have busted out my heat tool again and created a jolly little gang of cheeky meerkats to help celebrate a birthday!
What a cheerful little chappie this bee is – so cute offering a flower along with his thanks – don’t ask why I think this is a boy rather than a girl bee – it just looks like a little fella is my only reason!

Don’t get to make too many ‘New Baby’ cards, so when my husband asked me to make one for a co-worker who had just had their first baby I was a bit of a loss as I don’t really have much in the way of baby themed stamp sets.
