Dinosaur Frolic

Isn't April flying by? It's only another 12 days now before Mum and I go off to Tasmania for a week. Have been thinking about what clothes to take etc. I added a new thick cardigan with a hood and toggle buttons to my purchases today. Last time I went to Tassie I ended up having to buy a jacket it was so cold, so this time I am going to be more prepared and have something that I actually really like instead of buying something cheap and getting rid of it when I got home.
I had a visit with the minister from church today as I am transferring my church membership from our old church to the one I have been attending for nearly two years. All I have to do is say that I want to do this and they take care of the protocol details and I'm accepted into membership next month.
I caught up this morning with a couple of friends for coffee, grabbed some bones for the dogs at the butchers and then back home to do some housework. I popped out again with a friend to look for a coat for her and possibly for me but as I mentioned I bought a cardigan and she didn't find a coat. My problem is that I'm short and things are just too long in the sleeve for me and she couldn't find one that would do up. They seem to be making things smaller than the size that is on the label.
Hubby was really late home so I grabbed some take-away food and he ended up with leftovers from last night and some soup. Our son was also very late home so he bought take-away too. Our eldest daughter and her fiancee called in and I got to see her engagement ring. It is lovely. Lots of talk about engagement party and wedding details.
Anyway, I didn't sit down to craft until about 10.30 p.m. and this is what I ended up with.
The basecard is SU Pacific Point, the stripey DP is from a mini pack of papers by Merci called "Boys". The image is a digi from Meljen's Designs and I cut it out with a Nestie Die, coloured with Copic Markers and then adhered to a piece of SU Certainly Celery and trimmed. The sentiment is from a Kanban set of animal stamps and sentiments. I haven't done the inside yet but will do and then come back and put a pic on later. (if I remember, LOL)
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
2 Sisters Challenge Blog - Challenge #86 - Sketch

Allsorts Challenge Blog - Week 149 - Colour Bingo - I used Green, stripe and Blue.
Make It Monday - #84 - Anything Goes
I better push on as a couple of these finishes soon and want to get them added to the blogs.
