Purple Elephant

I made this card for my SBS26 sister Jenny, for the last week of our (now not so) Secret Sister round:

I do like this elephant from Little Claire, he's so cheerful! I coloured the image with my trusty watercolour pencils and added some Stickles to the dandylion and flowers. The sentiment stamp is from Prima Marketing, and the buttons and flower are from stash. Cardstock is from the Paper Mill Shop and the purple panel was embossed with a CB folder. I do have fun making these cards, I find colouring images very therapeutic and relaxing :) What a kid I am!

Well, the sun is out today, and it's feeling quite warm - what a nice change! I hope it will last for a wee while, seeing our Easter break starts on Friday, and it's my birthday on Sunday. I'm hoping for a day out in the Borders, to soak up a bit of spring, so rain just would not do!

Hope you're having a lovely, sunny day, wherever you are, thanks for stopping by :)
