My Post Today For The Crafter's Companion Blog

I have a new post for the Crafter's Companion blog today featuring a sweet new card.
She is very shy.  
I stamped her using my Rock-a-blocks and black ink.
 The image on the package inspired me to colour her in this palette.  Happily, I was able to use the new Crafter's Companion Spectrum Noir markers.  They are fabulous to work with!
 I cut my coloured image into a smaller square and added some foam tape to the back to give it some height on the card.
 I placed the bouquet behind her arms by using an x-acto knife to cut a little insert.
Isn't she sweet?

She is originally from the "Birthday Girl" set.  
You can see how she can be used for all occasions!

I love whimsical elephants, Carmi. The card is adorable.

My sister and I once painted the small bathroom off our rec room for my mother's birthday (where we often had parties).

Sis painted the walls a grayish lavender and I painted "pink elephants and purple alligators" (from the song - oops I just dated myself) all over the room.

One alligator lounged across the top of the toilet tank with a martini glass in his hand!

The people who bought the house after my parents passed, must have thought we were all nuts! lol.
