BBTB - ZooBalloo - Elephant Challenge

Our challenge this week over at the Bitten By The Bug site was to use the adorable elephant on the ZooBalloo cartridge. Be sure to check out what the other design team members made . . . every week I'm amazed at the creativity on that site!! Don't forget there is also a contest going on over at the BBTB site. Check it out, and get creating!!


I'm not sure why, but the minute I looked at this elephant, I thought about making a baby boy card. I used Provo Craft and DCWV patterned and solid papers. I stamped a circular baby sentiment from a Stampin' Up set, and I cut it out with my Coluzzle. I added white sheer ribbon and some "Oh Baby!" ribbon, plus I added a safety pin at the bottom. Once again, I just had to add some googly eyes. I think this turned out pretty cute.

I hope you're all having a wonderful day. The weather today is sunny and in the 70's. I could go for weather like this all year round . . . it's just gorgeous outside. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, Carol, this is an adorable card. My hubby just bought me a Cricut on eBay and I can hardly wait for it to get here so I can start playing with it. I think this cartridge will be of my list of must haves.

I'm finally catching up on blogs here... great card! I wouldn't have thought of a baby boy seeing this right off. :) But it's adorable as always. I sure do need to get myself some more carts for my cricut!
