The Pink Elephant Challenge #29

Good morning, this week seems to be flying and I can't believe that the school hols are nearly finished...both of mine go back a week today...little one can't wait...James, well...least said soonest mended lol!

Today's card is for a challenge I haven't entered's The Pink Elephant Challenge and I thought I'd play along this week as they have a lovely little sketch that attracted my eye...and I do love a sketch lol!

I found this stamp (by Great Impressions) in my stamp drawer...I'd forgotten all about this lil cutie so thought I'd ink him up and colour him in with my Promarkers! The design papers are Basic Grey 'Two Scoops' and the green card stock is SU! The ribbon, card candy and rub-on sentiment are from my craft stash and dare I say that the flowers were punched with my X-Cut punch lol! Sorry if you're all getting bored with these but they are my most fav style of flowers...ever lol! Thanks for visiting me today and leaving me a comment :)

Another gorgeous card, can never get bored of the flowers, got a similar punch on order myself so expect it to get much overuse!

Can't believe your kids are looking forward to going back to school and that it's next week. I seem to have blinked and missed Summer this year!


Maria Matter said...

I love these little flowers Donna, you keep right on using them!!!
This is such a sweet image...beautiful coloring!

didn't James do a writing course over the summer? did he enjoy that?
isn't it 'cute' how the younger kids want to get back to school or more likey their friends!

Hope you're enjoying your time off!
blessings, Maria
