It's not pink!

.
Well, the first card might not be but the second one sure is............. you can't possibly be surprised!

Hi

Hope you are all having a fantastic day.

Bit of drizzly rain here today, but it hasn't stopped my boys running around outside in their underwear shooting each other with water pistols. Boys hey!

I had a couple of these baby elephants from Squigglefly printed up so I thought I would colour them up this morning while the boys were playing outside.



Baby Elephant is coloured with Copics - B97, B93 and B91

I cut around the image and placed it on top of a circle of SU Whisper White cardstock. I cut out a large scollop circle on the bigshot and placed the white circle on top. I used my B97 copic to trace around the circle and the scollop edge but it looks a bit dodgy unfortunately. White pearls are dotted around the edge of the scollop circle too.

Designer paper is from Stampin Up.

Now for the pretty pink one........... always has to be a pink one on this blog of mine it would seem. I'm beginning to wonder if I shouldn't be signing up for some sort of 12 step program to wean me off the pink!

I really loved how the baby boy's card came up so I decided to make one for a baby girl as well.


Baby Elephant is coloured with Copics - R85, R83 and R81

Designer Papers are from Stampin Up.

I'm linking these cards up to the Squiggle fly challenge #56 - Open

Thanks for stopping by today.
