Sweet Stampin Challenge

Woohoo! It's Saturday, it's the weekend, and it's a bank holiday weekend. Now for those of you working Monday to Friday that means that you have a day off and a shorter week. Those of us who work Wednesday to Friday it means zip to, other than our otherwise peaceful Monday is invaded by our nearest and dearest... Only joking if you're reading that nearest and dearest ;)

Anyway, there's a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' today and this time we want to see....

Four Legged Friends

We are sponsored this week by Whimsy Stamps who are offering 5 digi stamps to the winner and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen who are offering £10 to spend in their store!

On to my card and, true to form, I decided to avoid going for the obvious cats and dogs and go for an elephant instead.  Isn't she cute? (even if she is pink).  I made this card for my friends Pauline and Joe when their baby girl (Lumpy) was born at the end of March there. No, her name isn't really Lumpy but if you remember we were trending on Twitter to #ComeOutLumpy. (The baby's real name is Alexa and she is a wee cutie!)

Challenges I'd like to enter:

Creative Inspirations - Animal Antics
Paper Playtime - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Ribbon
Bunny Zoe - Ribbon or Twine
One Stop - Celebrations

Image - Stampasaurus, coloured with Copics. Not sure where sentiment is from
Cardstock/Paper - From stash
Embellishments - all from stash
Tools - Eyelet Square Nesties, Flower Punch, Cuttlebug

Don't forget to pop over to Sweet Stampin' to see what my fellow Sweeties have been up to!

I'll be back tomorrow with my pinnings from Pinterest this week for Share it on Sunday.

Thanks for dropping by today. 

Hugs. Susan xxx

Hi Susan, such a cute card - love it! Great colour choice as well ;-)


PS - Look closely at the spots on the pressie on the tag - you may notice they are white (ie uncoloured) they should've been blue! But I was protecting the tag from small hands that wanted to 'help' and then completely forgot to finish it off!!!
