A Twitterpated Elephant

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend, since it's almost gone as I'm writing this.  Where does the time go?  I had all these great ideas of what I'd get accomplished this weekend, and most of it never got around to happening.  Of course, there's always a good reason for that, or so it seems at  the time.  But still, it's impossible to cram 4 days worth of "busyness" into a two day weekend!  So instead of posting both days, there's only one little post tonight.  Maybe I'll get the other one posted tomorrow if all goes according to plans.  Now, don't go holding your breath waiting - I don't want anyone passing out, you know?!!  Ok, here's my slightly 'twitterpated'  post for today...

Stamps:  Patterned Occasions and Curly Cute
Ink:  Basic  Gray pad, Basic Black, Real Red, and Lucky Limeade markers
Paper:  Whisper White, Real Red, and Twitterpated Designer Series Paper
Accessories:  Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, Decorative Label Punch, Eyelet Border Punch(ret), and Dimensionals
This is a fairly simple card, but it still has a lot going on.  I love all the prints here between the two DSP prints and the elephant itself.  It just looks so happy and friendly.  Wish I would have thought of making this card for the baby shower I went to this afternoon.  Wouldn't it have been cute?

This little elephant is part of the Patterned Occasions stamp set that you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration - my favorite time of year!!  All the stamps in this set are just so dog-gone cute and are very versatile.  The wording on this one is for a thank you card, but why stop at that?   Think of all the other times you might need this little guy, not to mention the rest of the stamps in the set!

The little chunk of Real Red punched with the retired Eyelet Border Punch was just sitting in my scrap stash.  Thought it worked out nicely framing the little elephant.  The Lucky Limeade ribbon was the end of the spool and didn't quite make it around the front, so I just angle cut it and taped it where it is.  Normally I would have attached it in back and added on another small piece for the tie.  But this way looks nice and uncluttered instead.  (What is that old saying about necessity being the mother of invention or something like that???)

Well, that's it for my Sunday musings.  Thanks for stopping by and seeing what's happening here.  Have a creative week!  Sharon
