May 9,2016 Elephant Parade and Awesome


One of my bestie's daughter recently had a baby boy - they already had a 2 year sweet girl at home so I made 2 cares to put in the mail.  The first is for Sis - Awesome Big Sis and wrote a little note in the card for her.  The elephant parade is an inspiration from Pam Sparks who works magic with dies.  She had posted this card - and yes I totally CASED it - with her permission.  I was shopping last week at my favorite little stamping store in Kimswick Mo. with a dear friend and her sweet Mom (my adopted Mom) and the store had this die, - and only 1 so it went in my basket but I will share.  I had some baby papers with elephants that worked perfect for this card.  I used bakers twine on this card for the tag as I didn't wanted added bulk in my envelope.  Since they are stationed overseas I sent a couple of gifties for the kids, a pair of pictures for the baby's room and aMom and Me cookbook for Big Sis.   Hope they enjoy the gifts and cards.  

I made an extra just to have on hand for the next baby card I need and here it is in different print.

You are so sweet! Big sis LOVES getting mail! Both cards are adorable, and this granny says thank you! Whatever would we do without Pam's inspiration?
