Saturday, 10 May 2014


Afternoon all.  I seem to be having a bit of a phase with elephants at the moment - on cards you understand, nothing untoward.  I mean, what could you do with an elephant?  I can't see me being able to take one to work with me on the bus, f'instance.

Anyhoo, one of the cutest elephants around is little Bella, and this morning I spent an hour or so making a mess of a step card with her:

This is Wild Rose Studio's Bella Carrying A Pile of Presents
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are Dovecraft Back to Basics
Card base cut from an A4 sheet of pearlised blue card
Stepper die purchased from Sarah at Craft All Day
Woodware small retro flowers and Hobby House pearls
Paper Smooches sentiment
The twine bow and string is from a Lucy Cromwell stamp set

Hope your Saturday is a fun one.  Sunshine and showers here.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Love it, Squirrel :) Come to think of it, I've been wondering for a long time, how I could keep a giraffe at home ;) Taking an elephant in a bus? Hilarious just to picture it :)

I've not done a stepper card for ages, and forget how lovely they look. Love Bella the heffalump, and of course the pink and blue (my fave combo) Lovely card honey. I keep thinking I want to do a criss-cross card, but then once I get my papers out I clean forget! I'm so easily distract.... ooooh, new stamps!
