Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - DT Piece



Hello everyone, todays challenge over at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge is "At The Zoo" and has been chosen by the lovely Sue. I instantly new what stamp I was going to use for the challenge, its my ickle elephant from Spiral Whisper. I've not had alot of mojo this week and fancied thinking outside the box so after having a rummage I found a few spare calenders, and a bag of chipboard shapes, so thought another calender be nice as we are only just into 2009. Covered the handbag with paper from DCWV Blossoms and Butterfly Stack and paper pieced my Ellie with another paper from the same pad. The sentiment "Elephants Never Forget" just sprung to mind and thought it appropriate as its all about dates. If you click on the piccie you'll see a closer view. Used my SU punches to punch this out. Flowers from Hero Arts, Skeleton leaves and Rub On from my stash. Hope you like my interpretation, please go check out what the other DT members have made this week, and hopefully you'll be able to join us in this weeks challenge! Thanks for looking.

I am so very sorry Claire that I have not visited your blog in a while - unfortunately my two little boys caught the D&V bug that has been going round and have been quite poorly with it.

I love your little elephant bag - it reminds me of Elmer!

Your blue teddybear card is gorgeous too x
