Recovery Elephant



I needed to whip up a get well soon card today for the 2-year-old son of a close friend in the States. Poor lad has to have a hernia operation next week (never knew you could get a hernia that young!) so I wanted him to have this when he comes out of hospital.

He went to the zoo at the weekend and saw elephants for the first time so knew I had to use this super-cute elephant from Gina K. I punched holes in the scallops of the scalloped circle mat for the lacey effect. Sentiment is from Satmping Bella - such a useful one to have!

Thanks for stopping by!

Recipe-
Stamps - Whatever floats your boat (Gina K)/sentiment (Stamping Bella)
Ink - Memento tuxedo black/Versafine black
Card/Paper - Rose Red/Certainly Celery/Cutie Pie (All Stampin' Up!)
Other - Copic markers/nestabilities/cuttlebug/label dies (Spellbinder)/Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon (SU!)/brads/hole punch

Oh wow it's adorable Kate! Your colouring is gorgeous and I'm sure it'll make the little boy so happy!
Love Becky xx
P.S Did I say in my email that I love Bella and don't have any? Your mention of the sentiment suddenly reminded me!

Sooo cute! Those cutie pie papers were my fave - shame they retired.
