In the Jungle....

The Lion sleeps tonight!!! Oh No bet you are singing that the rest of the day now!!!
I found Courageous Carl while having a Look on Crissys Blog. He is so sweet and just right for My Mums Mothers Day card. Hope shes not having a sneeky peek!!! I have gone with colours that I dont usually pick at this time of year but they all just seemed to fall into place. I like it when a card does that.(Its not very often!!!)
The Your Grrreat comes from Tony the Tiger, hope he doesnt mind a Lion pinching his catch phrase!!! Least he didnt steal his cereal!!
I spent hours colouring him in and eventually am happy with the outcome. I wanted his mane to be really bushy looking and his fur to look furry!!! I used Debs tutorials as a guideline for the colours. So he has black in his mane as the darkest shade! By the time I stopped last night my eyes were going blurry!!! Ooops!!!
