This elephant from the Stacking Animals set just cracks me up with his dead pan expression LOL. I thought he paired very well with the sentiment from Choose Happy for a wry, humorous take on a card that I know would make several of my friends smile :D I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post.

This was a simple card to put together; I stamped the elephant in Intense Black ink on Neenah Solar White card, trimmed out with the matching die and then colored with Copics. For the panel, I blended Melon and Rosie Cheeks from the top of a Stitched Rectangle of white card and lightly splattered with toning watercolors. When dry I stamped the sentiment in the top left corner with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
Well, here it is all go; is there any other speed?! The schools went back yesterday and my youngest started High School, meanwhile my eldest is preparing to go to University in a couple of weeks. Of course in all the hubbub, this was the perfect time to decide that I needed to reorganise my craft space with storage units picked for purpose and not the mish-mash of left over shelves from the rest of the house! I’m knee-deep in flat pack with all my supplies hither and thither while I sort myself out. I will try to share some photographs but I’m working in phases. It would no doubt have been better to clear out the room, redecorate and such to give a clean slate, however, I wanted to buy pieces of storage as I needed them so that I got just the right amount of shelves vs drawers etc. So I’m building new units and filling them before working out what to sort next. When all that is done I want to then put a lick of paint around the place. Yup, long way to go, but it feels good to be sorting out the space that I spend a fair amount of time in :D
