Weekend already!

I could get used to having only 4 days at work in a week, even if this week has been completely frantic trying to fit everything in. Alex has a nasty cough which is keeping us all awake at night, but despite that we have had a lot of fun over the past few days with him waving a wand to turn us into different far I have been a frog, a giant, a troll and a monster...all good fun!
Crafting wise I have only had time to make this card for a friend who loves Elephants. The background is brayered from Adirondack red pepper and sunshine yellow (so fits with Kaboodle Doodles 'B is for...brayering' challenge). The elephant stamp is from a Stamps Away set that I have had for about 4 years, whereas the other stamps are all from lavinia stamps with the tree being a Mother's Day present this year so this fits with TioT 'something old, something new' challenge. This card also fits with the 'show us your style' theme from Paper Play and has a circle on it (the sun) and so fits with the cards for men 'circles', CCC 'something beginning with C' and PTW 'anything goes with something round' challenges. That is all from me for now. Have a great weekend everyone.
