Stampin' for the Weekend 13/Cute Card Thursday 75


Well what a busy old week I've had catching up with various friends for coffee.Hubby and I, well I do have to take him out sometimes went out one evening for a meal with some friends at a South Indian and Sri-Lankan Restaurant in Hornchurch and very nice it was too.I've also been busy watering a friends garden every day while he has been on holiday.What a mammoth task that is too most of his garden is concrete and covered in hundreds of pots and two greenhouses as well. My poor old car doesn't know what's hit it. It's gone from doing 5-6 miles a week to doing that every day
This card is for two challenges. The theme over at Stampin' for the Weekend is anything baby.Cute Card Thursday theme is new beginnings so what better new beginning than a new baby.So I did this very quick and simple card.I didn't want anything too fancy otherwise it would have detracted from the wire word "baby".I just love this little elephant Ellie she is do darn cute don't you think? Gingham paper is from Funky Fairys. Ellie is from Stamposaurus and wire word from Papermania.

Oooohhhh that is such a cute little ellie and it is such a great idea to keep it simple as as you say it does show off the wire word :D

Glad I stumbled here. Been trying to get some ideas of what to do for cute, but not overly for a frameable picture card that is going to hang next to a very ornate wood door. I think the Ellie type stamp and wire detail will be perfect. I hope one of the stores near me here in LA has something like it. Thanks for the idea.
