Tuesday, March 22, 2011
Hello Everyone-Hope you are having a great day or getting ready to start and awesome day.

I made this card to show you a simple card.  I saw a card similar to this in a magazine and to be honest I could not find it when I wanted to scraplift it-well since I did not find it I had to just do what I wanted.


The paper and ribbon I used is an order line called  B-Day Bash by Imaginisce.  The Elephant was cut at 4 inches using the cart Birthday Bash.  You guys will notice that the stamps I normally use are from My Pink Stamper but believe it or not-I have NONE that say Happy Birthday so I had to use a Stampin Up stamp.

I used pop dots on the ear of the elephant and the sentiment.







Remember to pop over to my blog and and become a follower.  When I get to 1500 followers I will have some big blog candy..... Click HERE




For those of you that have asked about my FROG....(item holding card)  I found it at a local antique store.
 
Now you also need to comment here so that you will be entered into Monique's blog candy.  Everyday is a new entry.....

Big Bug Hugs-
