Meerkat Madness ........................

Here is the latest of my 3d gifts that I have made,
I finished this one off late last night as I could not sleep,
the person that ordered it came and collected it this morning and was over the moon with it,
It stands approx 10" tall, and it does spin round like a real carousel does.

The order was for something special with a meerkat theme,
so thought to be unique (hopefully) that I would do a meerkat carousel,

I also made my own box for it with a acetate window in one of the sides so it can be seen while still in the box.

I added a gift tag card to the lid,

I am going to enter this into the following challenges -
Totally Papercrafts - Animal Magic,
I love to Digi - Anything But A Card,
Rainbow Lady's - Fantasy Land,
Cute Card Thursday - Anything But A Square,
Crafty Creations - Childs Play
A crafty Little Place - Anything But A Square,
By the Cute & Girly - Musicals- Carousel - New Template

Thanks for stopping by,
