meerkats for nan

Good evening all.I hope you are all well.we`ve had really heavy rain here but its stopped now.
i got in from work and i have been busy washing and drying the uniforms etc for monday and cooked a sphag bol for tea with cheesy garlic bread.
then it was time to make my mums birthday cards as only got a few days to do them.
my card tonight is for for my little man to give his nan and because his nans favourite animal is meerkats it just had to be that on her card.
i am entering it into the following challenges:
1.stamptacular sunday challenge - challenge 127 - the skys the limit
2.truly scrumptious challenge - challenge 65 - decorate the inside
3.my mums craft shop challenge - layer it up
4.southern girls challenge - birthday blog hop

 products used are:
8x8 card
cream and gold pearl card
gcd ella blue papers
computer generated sentiment and verse
artemio pearls
heart doily
meerkat digi stamp - delicious doodles
promarkers and fleximarkers
white gel pen

promarkers and fleximarkers
antique white,light fawn,satin,sandstone,caramel,warm grey,2,3
powder blue,artic blue,sky blue
pine,forest,moss
white gel pen

 the inside.the verse is from  a verse site plus more of the gcd papers and pearls
and a sideways view.
not too sure if my meerkat colouring is right, i googled loads of pics and they seem to vary in colour a little but am sure my mum will love it either way.
thanks so much for popping by, means a lot.
