Apologies for my lack of posts for the last few days but unfortunately the heat tends to drain all my energy and I've not been fit for much. Fortunately it is a little cooler (but only a little) today and I have been tinkering in the craft room with a large project (a mirror frame) which you will probably see when it is completed. I made a card for my daughter in law using some more of my snippets for the Pixie Playground challenge. She loves elephants and this image has been in my box of bits and pieces for a really long time so I decided to use it for her card. This lovely baby is from a Joanna Sheen CD containing beautiful animal images painted by Jane Netley Mayhew. I found some more snippets to punch the two borders and die cut a fancy mat for the picture, added a few 'orphan' flowers from the bottom of a glass pot of mixed colours - again these have been on my shelf for years but are just right colourwise for this card. In view of the length of time my son's card took in the post this one is already on its way - what's the betting it will arrive far too early!!
