I Love You a TON Elephant Card

This week’s Midweek Throwdown Challenge at Operation Write Home is Cards 4 Kids!

I love making kid-friendly cards (my “I Wheelie Miss You!” Card was featured as a sample this week : ) and for this challenge I thought would make another card with a punny sentiment – as well as some elephant die cuts and cheerful colors:

I Love You a TON Elephant Card

I drew on the eyes and added some faux stitching to my diecuts with pens to add some definition and make it look quilted.  I hope a hero will enjoy sending it home once I mail it off to OWH!

Thanks for taking a look and hope you are having a great week!

Hand Stamped Mother’s Day Card with Giraffes

I know a couple moms who just took their little ones to the zoo for the first time, so I thought I would stamp a card for each of them to remind them of their children enjoying the giraffes that they saw at the zoo and to wish them each a Happy Mother’s Day!

Stamps used:

“Mother’s Day” (Block Stamp by Inkadinkado)

Giraffes (Clear Stamps by Autumn Leaves from the Mindy’s Zoo Set)
