Lil Dumplings Rory - Pollycraft DT

Happy Saturday everyone :o)  We've had a lovely day today - we met up with the in-laws for lunch, and then took the boys to the Butterfly House because one of Dex's school projects required him to tick off lots of 'mini-beasts' as he saw them... while seeing bees and ants isn't too difficult, he wasn't likely to see snakes/ newts/ frogs etc without going out somewhere.  Still need to spot a ladybird and a centipede but we're almost done!

Here's a little card I made for one of Dex's friend's whose party we went to yesterday afternoon - Dex chose Lil Dumplings Rory from Pollycraft and insisted the image had to be coloured in 'green with yellow and purple stripes'... luckily these Echo Park papers were a good match!

Items Used
Digi stamp - Lil Dumplings Rory - Pollycraft
Colouring - copics & prisma pencils
Papers - Echo Park Summer Days - MCH
MFT dienamics Blueprints 1 dies
Spotty button - Papermania

Sounds like you had a great day out. I think Dexter will have to go and dig the garden ..he might be lucky and find a centipede :) We have so few ladybirds and bees etc. this year its frightening. The orchids are suffering due to bee inactivity :(
