meercat birthday

I'm back in work for my 3 day stint, after choosing the best week of the summer to be off, whoooopppppeeeeee!  I was going to do lots of crafting, but in the end only did a couple of challenges, oh! well the best laid plans are meant to be broken ay?

I was asked to make a card for a girl in work for her nephew, it had to be funnyish and say 21 on it.  I took it in and she loved it, - why - because the meercats looked like her nephew!!!!!!!!!!! she said I couldn't have picked anything better, one satisfied customer LOL. 

The meercats were a free download from Papercraft Inspirations magazine.  I coloured them in PS and used DP's by Danielle Engebretson at Digichick for the rest of the meercat and the background and banner, I cut the 21 on my Cricut. I 3D'd the bunting so they looked like they were waving.
