Square elephants


I am working hard on building up stock ready for my next craft fair next Saturday. I am rather short of Birthday cards so am trying to get some of those made, along with several others I am short of too. I really want to keep ahead with Christmas cards and scrapbooking. I also have some samples and magazine work to do, still it keeps me out of mischief.

Image - Little Claire elephants in squares
Medium - Copics
Papers - MME Unforgettable
Sentiment - Forever Friends
Other - flower, brads and pearls

I have so many old sentiments in a file that I am really trying to use them instead of stamping sentiments as much as usual. I used to buy lots of sentiments before I got into stamping them and as part of my quest to use up old stash they are being used along with the brads I have had for years.

Challenges

Inky Chicks Movie star (Dumbo) 
Papertake Happy anything

We are looking forward to visiting Lynsey today and going out for lunch with her and her family. Enjoy your Saturday.
