Lion up a tree !

I fell in love with this Lion when I saw him on a recent trip to Sir Stampalot. I love the cross expresion on his face as he`s got himself stuck in the tree !! he is called "Lion up a tree" from The Zoo collection. I`ve coloured him in with distress inks, the background paper is BoBunny and I`ve used Cheery Lynn die - Fanciful Flourish, the sentiment was one from a whoots owl set but I thought it went well with the subject matter LOL !! The background was created using scattered straw distress ink and a sponge over a cloud template, I wanted it to look hot instead of a blue sky which I think kind of worked ........ It looks like it`s going to be a lovely hot day again here too, I may take a trip out in my car now it`s fixed . I woke up yesterday morning to a massive puddle of oil under my car and none actually in the car when I checked. I managed to put enough oil in to get me to the nearest garage where they discovered a hole in my oil filter. An oil and filter change and about half hours work and I was back on the road again. I am very thankful to Alan Burnett of Cradge Bank Garage who did such a quick and efficient job for me, when I saw the huge oil leak under my car I feared it was terminal !! So like I said, I may take a trip out today and enjoy the sunshine. Thanks for looking in, bye for now and happy crafting xx
