Good afternoon everyone and a very warm welcome to my two new followers Chris and Leslie - so glad you joined me!  Well, here I am with my next card for the OSAAT Challenge where our theme is Anything Goes with Four Legged Friends - my blog friend Christine H wants to see me walking my four legged friend on a lead!  :o)    I really would love to oblige - honest.

I recently bought some flowers from WOC and they gave me a little free gift in my parcel of some Hydrangea petals, they are so lovely that I sent for some other colours and I made the flowers for my card using these 'Two Tone' pink ones plus some silver stamens from Brenda's Lace and Ribbons.  I paper pieced the elephant to give him a different look and painted his toenails pink!

Our prize for August is as follows 


6" x 6" white card blank
Image - Cute Smiling Elephant by Ken Benner at Stitchy Bears Digi Outlet
Pink Card - American Crafts Cardstock - Spring collection
Grey Paper - Sizzix paper pad
Floral Swirl Embossing Folder - Tattered Lace
Stately Circles die - Spellbinders
Swirl die - Shapeabilities Romantic Blooms One
Sentiment - Clear Stamp by Rachel Anne Miller at Crafters Companion
Small Flowers and Petals - WOC
Pearls and Silver Stamens - Brenda's Lace and Ribbon Specials (FB)

I hope you are going to enter our challenge this fortnight - we all have four legged friends of some kind or another - perhaps not elephants lol - but I do live on Planet Susie!

By the way, Winnie the Snitch may have a little bit of news for Big Winnie very shortly - if you haven't a clue what I'm waffling about check out my post here.

Keep well all of you, I'm sending you a big hug just in case you need one.

Lots of love and hugs

Sue  xxx
