Meerkats everywhere

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well or nearly there...hugs.
Oh what a relief it is to get up and feel a lovely cooling breeze coming in through the window, sheer bliss to me as I do not do well in hot weather.  I do love the wall to wall blue that we have just now though!
On to my cards for today. I was unable to print any for a while because my card tolerant upstairs printer gave up the ghost, but off I popped to Comet and LO and Behold, there was an Epson printer/scanner/copier for the princely sum of £27.99 including a set of quarter full ink carts! I hasten to add that it was so cheap because it was a discontinued one and the display model, the last in the shop,  so I came home and started playing immediately :o)

I took the photographs at Twycross Zoo a couple of years ago and as you can see, I feathered them in PSP. I get such a lot of satisfaction being able to do that. As usual, I cut and folded the white linen card but this time to A6. I have shown the inside of the first one to illustrate the inside of each card. I added the speech bubbles and text in MS Word using my favourite Papyrus font. I hope you like them :o)
