Don't Forget!

Good morning! It is a very chilly snowy morning here in Chicago. We've had heavy winds and now the temperatures have dropped to an uncomfortable low. I have layers and layers on and am still cold! Ugh! It's going to be a loooooooooooong winter!

Enough about my complaining....and on to my card for today! I have another JustRite card created by children's author and illustrator, Elizabeth Dulemba. This set is called Ellie Time. Who knew elephants could be cute and stylish! (Check out the vest!) ; ) I colored this adorable image in with Copic Markers. The mouse was cut out separately and Crystal Effects was added to his heart. I then placed him on pop dots. The main image was cut out using Spellbinder's oval die, then left in place while I airbrushed with the B000 Copic Marker. I backed that with a scalloped oval in red.
The inside says, " I Love You!"

I created "grass" for my elephant by using my Martha Stewart fringe scissors. The sentiment was stamped directly on it and I threaded a thin white ribbon through it. As a last and final touch, I added a red rhinestone to the ribbon.
And let me reiterate how much I loved reading about you gals! It seriously was the highlight of my weekend! : ) I always appreciate your visits and comments! Thank you so much!!!!!!
Off to school.......dressed as an elf. Yep. Gotta love schoolteachers! ; )
