Have a GGGGreat Birthday!

Morning All - another lovely morning! The sun has got her hat on! Although I hear that rain is forecast for the end of this week...typical I've got an annual leave day booked for Friday!

So, over at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge they are celebrating the launch of new stamps with an anything goes the imagination ran wild! Take a peek here to see the new stamps in use in the fab DT designs. I think the cards and the stamped images are just gorgeous.

I decided to go with a completely different theme for my card.....

Not my usual style I know, but I fancied trying my hand at a children's card. I've created my lion topper out of yellow and orange paper, adding details with black pen and giving him some googly eyes to make him more child friendly! To keep the card bright and simple I have used a green backing paper on one side of the card and some lovely spotty paper in a smaller size on the other side. I completed the card with a pre-printed topper.

I think this card is fab....even if I do say so makes me smile and thats a sign of a fab card in my book! Ha, ha! I also made an elephant card, which I'm not so happy there is debate in my family because they think I've created a hybrid creature...take a look....

Apparently elephants do not have short curly tails....thats pigs! So I've created a piggie-phant!

Again, this card is created using plain and patterned backing papers. I'm not as happy with my colour combo in this card though.

For the ladies at SCSC its the lion card that I want to enter for the challenge - not my weird piggie-phant!!

Thanks for stopping by today, enjoy the sunshine wherever you are!
