Elephant with flowers

Hello lovely people,

I have been mostly beavering away in my craft room over the past week, although I did come up for air on Saturday to go to a beer festival and I have popped outside to enjoy the sunshine once or twice...with an ice cream of course :-)

It's a CCC (coffee, cake and chat) day for me today and I am hosting Sue and Debs at mine, so keep your fingers crossed that my cake has turned out ok!


While I am enjoying some fabulous company, it's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme is...

BUTTONS and/or BOWS
Don't forget we want to see more pink than any other colour!

Our fabulous sponsor this time is Little Miss Muffet Stamps with a $6 voucher


My card is a little something I made for a lovely friend's birthday and yes, it's another elephant...well, I did warn you!

I've gone for a faux button made by layering up 3 die cut buttons and sanding the edges.

For my previous creations with these elephants I used a single elephant with one of the balloons added but this time I went for a meadow scene using the daisy stamps.

I used a combination of flicking strokes and dotting with my Copics to give the look of grass.
