Animal Antics!

Evening All!

A late one from me this evening as I am just back from our annual Brownie trip to the panto! We saw Mother Goose this year and as usual the Brownies loved it! Before I went I needed to create a thank you card for my sister to give to one of her Guides and this is what I came up with....



Now there is a reason for there being an elephant on this card...and its not Lucy's favourite animal! No, my sister Lorna was given a "knit an elephant kit" for Christmas two years ago, on the box of the kit is a smug looking 8 year old with the finished item so we all thought it must be easy! Lorna started knitting the elephant, but struggled because she found she could knit, but couldn't purl (I sympathise with Lorna as this is my problem with knitting too!!). One week Lorna mentioned her knitting woes to her Guides, and Lucy offered to finish the elephant for her. This was before Christmas....but we now have the finished elephant!

This card is perfect for this week's challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge where they have an "animal antics" theme this week! Pop over to their blog to see all the fab DT cards!

Right, its late and I'm sleepy so I'll wish you all goodnight! Thanks for popping by today, hope to see you again soon!
