It's been ages...

Goodness me, now that I'm not on the Sketch Saturday design team any more, I keep forgetting to post anything on my blog.  I am, however, being quite creative.  The lovely Mo Manning of Mo's Digital Pencil has been drawing the most fabulous new images virtually on a daily basis and seeing (and buying) them every day has given my personal "Mo"-Jo a real boost.   I've even done some (not much - but some) essential tidying in my Craft Croft in between making cards.  Now I just have to get active with Facebook and Blogging.
For my card today I used Mo's adorable "I forgot" which you can buy here.  A dear friend has taken a shine to elephants as a theme for her new baby and this gave me an idea for a baby card.   In the original image, the elephant is holding a flower but I asked Mo if she minded if I swapped the flower for an over-sized paper balloon and she very kindly agreed.

I cut the balloon with my Cricut and the balloon string is a Memory Box die.  The elephant is coloured with Copics.
I am entering my card into the Anything Goes challenges at
Aud Sentiments, Ribbon Girl & ABC (where O is for Open) and also Cute Card Thursday who want to see animals and Stamping Sensations who have asked for One for the Boys.
