Patchwork Elephant


For all of you that have been asking - Whisper is starting to feel a little better although we still have to drive her to the field and she will not wear a sock, to help in the healing process !!!

I really like the challenge Oldie But A Goodie, as it makes me use stamps that i've had for a while !!, but i nearly didn't enter this weeks as it's for a 'Baby', until i got an e-mail from a lovely friend of ours in Sydney, Oz to say she was pregnant, so it gave me a good excuse to use a stamp that i bought after a class with the lovely 'Francoise Read' (she designed the stamp too).  I got the inspiration for the style of card from the very talented Vicky who made me sit up and think about the nestie shapes i have and don't use very often - thanks hun.

Right onto todays Card and Challenges :
