Moving Along With The Times 'Cute 'n' Cuddly

Good morning, I hope you are all this wonderful in the UK.

 I am currently away from home at the moment as we are due to complete the sale on our house in about 2 weeks and we still don't have anywhere to live! Luckily my aunt has a holiday home that we can move into temporarily so won't be on the street's but trying to find somewhere suitable for us and that meets my needs is becoming quite a chore which I am regretting starting. So before I go any further I would just like to apologize for not getting around all your blogs this week.

OK onto the matter in hand this week at Moving Along With The Times Deb set us the challenge of 'Cute N Cuddly'. I had this order for a new baby card and as soon as I saw this image aptly called 'Baby Elephant' from new designer Sheryl Brown of Redonkulous Designs I just had to use it. Now I know an elephant isn't your usual cute and cuddly animal but couldn't you just cuddle up to this one? This card needed to be flat as it is going to Australia so all I added for embellishments was the three gems.

I even remembered to photograph the inside but it is really quite plan but just as requested.

6" Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Card Stock - Bazzill
Designer Papers - Craft Creations
Image - Redonkulous Designs 'Baby Elephant'
Medium - Promarkers & Flexmarkers
