Oh dear..I've missed such a lot, for which I apologise!
I loved seeing your photos and reading the post..and belated Happy Anniversary. We've been married for 17 years and in December it will be 21 years since we first met, it's flown by so quickly,must be because we love each other!

Fabulous card..I'm so bad at colouring animals but you've obviously got a great eye for it. Loving the corrugated card and embossing too.

Hugs Elaine xx
