just a few elephants

Hi all,yes its me,spent the day with hubby attacking our overgrown garden and then rested my aching muscles making some cards yesterday. Caught up with my xmas cards for snoflakes challenge over at Docrafts and this birthday card for my friends birthday tomorrow.
stammpin up 'patterned occassions' stamp set
memento inks
card,twine,buttons and gems from stash
stampin up stamped greeting from above set
stampin up window punch
stampin up modern label

As you may gather my friend loves elephants so using my new addiction which is all the memento inks in dewdrop pads stamped the elephant three times, masking off the greeting below. layered up using white and pearl card and added embellishments.
Todays plan me thinks is to do some sorting out in the house and then some more crafting,hopefully my order from countryviewcrafts will turn up today x
