3 challenge cards and some zoo piccies!

Hope you are enjoying the bank holiday weekend, the weather has been a bit miserable here so far, but is due to brighten up again which is good as it is our town festival this week, starting with the carnival tomorrow which my girls are taking part in, that is if Lillie is feeling well enough!
Anyhow here are some cards that I have made over the past few days to tie in with a few challenges.
First up is my card for the Sketch and Stash challenge, I've used a freebie image from Anne Bodil, she's pre-coloured which is fab!! The ribbon/braid is new, I got it from a carboot last week, everything else is from my stash.The following card is for the Cute Card Thursday challenge which is to use no designer papers! The image is a freebie from Paula at Pollycraft.
Last card for this post and it covers 3 challenges!
1) Secret Crafter = Buttons and Blooms (I love how the button I've used for the flower centre matches the little girls tights perfectly! she's Lilli a crafty musing!).
2) One Stop Craft = Swirls and Pearls.
3) Create4Fun = sketch
Just thought I would share a few pictures that I took when we visited the zoo last weekend.
This was soooo..... cute Hollie sat on the ground to stroke the goat and it laid it's head on her lap!!
3 posers!!!
This was a paper mache tiger head which was on display, we thought it was fun to make it look as if it were trying to take a bite of Hollie's head!
You could get really close to the giraffe, even touch one if it was in the mood to let you!
Hubby's favourite, the meerkat, I must admit I love them to especially when they pose like this!
and finally a picture of my girls, I really liked the pile of logs so made them pose lol!!!!
That's all for tonight, we've been busy today emptying boxes which have been packed since we took the old kitchen out. It was time to sort out and put the stuff back, we are nearly done and it's sooooo...... nice to get a bit more of the living room back!!
Hope to be back tomorrow with some carnival pictures!
