Funky Congratulations

What a lovely Saturday it has been. Spring can definitely be felt in the air at the moment. How long will it last though? lol. We have had a bit of a busy day today - moving the rabbit run, getting hair done, picking up a rescue Bearded Dragon and making a card - as well as relocating the crickets from the viv to an ovo mouse 'tank'.

So here is my card creation for you lovely lot:

I started with a white card base. The layers are made with pearlesscent card and a free paper pack. Die-cuts used were Nellie Snellen Multi Frame 011 - Circle die and Sizzix Frame, snowflake die. The papermania ribbon was wrapped around the panel before adhering to the card. The stamps are all from separate sets that I got with Creative Stamping magazine and were inked with Pretty Colour ink pads. The colouring was done with metallic pencils.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
As you like it - Ribbon or lace? (Ribbon because there is a greater range and it is easier to match with the rest of the elements on the card)
MAWTT #39 For a man
Alphabet Challenge - Y for You choose
Quick Cards - Funky Party
Crafting by designs - February Anything Goes

So I mentioned picking up a new beardie - meet Simba:

He has a bit of an underbite but apparently it does not affect his eating, as he proved today! He is a lot faster than Atlas was and wants to climb everything - the benefit of having all his limbs!

I also planted some flower seeds today - an Annual mix of cottage garden seeds (from Tesco - they always work really well), and some Verbena, but I didn't get round to potting on my Lemongrass.

To finish here is an update of the dinos:
now at 21 hrs for dino #2.

Thank you for looking,
