Big Elephant Hugs!

Happy Sunday!

Almost ready to head to work, sadly, but I have to say our morning together has been wonderful, Darryl and I took Bentley out for a swim at the river, literally 5 mins away from us and boy did he love it, on the way back home we ventured across some Koala’s sitting in the trees, thought I would share it with you my readers, I think that I am incredibly lucky to be able to have something like this in my backyard as they say..

This first one was a little baby koala sunning itself..


Next one was asleep and we kinda had to wake him up just to get him to turn his head for a shot…


Super sweet…

Okay, so how about a card share…


This card, was a card that I once again was able to have lots of goodies from various companies, using MFT, Adorable Elephants stamp and die set, water colouring the images in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers…now the background feature I created a soft tone blending of Simon Says Stamp, Duckling and Hollyhock inks using the Stars and Dots stencil..adding a die cut sentiment using the Scripty Big Hugs die, die cutting several layers for dimension and the topping the sentiment off with some white glitter paper, adding my little elephant and the butterfly, finishing off by adding some layered cream card stock that I die cut from the Mama Elephant, Framed Tags-Madison Avenue and placed onto a pink card front..

I hope you enjoy viewing the card and the photos today…

Enjoy the rest of your day! thanks for stopping by as always you make me smile..

    Such a lovely card – I just love that stamp set.

    I’ve seen so many Koalas on Social media lately. Which makes me happy, but even before I read the comments I’m screaming in my head ‘It’s not a Bear’ … hahaha.ReplyCancel

    WOW! Those Koalas are so adorable. I am from Ontario Canada so I might see a deer in my back yard or a fox or coyote but no Koalas.
    Your card is beautiful. You make it look so easy, but it isn’t for me anyway. Love your work!ReplyCancel
