Belated ABC Z is for Zoo Challenge

I am not entirely sure where my head is at this week but I completely forgot to post my ABC DT card from last Wednesday! Arggghhhhh – sorry team

Anyhow late, but finally here is my idea for the Zoo challenge.

Main WM

As soon as I saw the gorgeously cute little elephant from Robyn’s Fetish, who are our sponsors this week. I was put in mind of hayfever because he looks like he might be sneezing. So with that in mind I sorted through my huge Basic Grey stacks for some floral paper that would fit the bill. The image has been coloured with prismas and OMS.

The ribbon, button and clip are all from my stash and I made the sentiment myself with a floral font in my graphics program. It reads, in case it’s not too clear here, ‘To keep hayfever at bay, take one Ell-ereze tablet a day …. Bless You!’ I also made the flowers from a combo of the papers.

I’m entering this into the following:-

  4. Hi Lin
    Long time no speak, I'm so sorry to have been such a poor blogging buddy lately. There just not seem to be enough hours in the day at the minute and blogging is the one thing that has suffered.
    Anyway, I've had a lovely catch up with your gorgeous cards and I see we have a similar taste in stamps. I love those EI large butterflies and was your Kanban stamp part of the QVC TSV recently. I treated myself and just love every single stamp set, they were great value.
    Your sneezing elephant made me laugh. I know just how he feels at the minute.
    I hope you are keeping well and will get in touch after the Summer Hols, promise!!
    Hugs Lisax
