Birthday Elephant #1

Hello.  Today was the first day back to work.  It was a busy day.  Just nine months until summer vacation.  Just kidding.  I loved having the summer off but it is nice to be back.  It is always fun to see the changes in the kids.

My son's birthday is coming up.  I think I am going to see how many elephant cards I can make him.  He will probably roll his eyes when he starts receiving them, but he will get over it.  I have 6 Bugaboo elephants alone, plus I have 3 more in my shopping cart.  This is going to be so much fun.  I think I will start mailing them out around the 15th.  That will give me 10 days.  So keep watch to see how many I get done.

This is the first one.  I just love this elephant from Bugaboo.  They have several Edward Elephants and you will probably see more of them.  I did it in red.  It is my son's favorite color and red and white is the colors for the University of Alabama.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Little Miss Muffet - For The Boys
   Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
   Sketch Saturday - Sketch #377
   Through The Craftroom Door - Favorite Team Colors

Have a great night.


  1. Adorable card - love the colors and great take on the sketch - thanks for joining the "for the boys" challenge at Little Miss Muffet.

  2. Great card Sarah! Thanks so much for joining us at Sketch Saturday this week! Deb DT

  3. Great idea! I'm sure while he may roll his eyes at all the elephants, he will appreciate it greatly. It wasn't until several later that I heard from my son that he really did enjoy the handmade cards from mom. Thanks for sharing this with us at Sketch Saturday. Great design for a birthday card.
