Hambo Hoedown Challenge, Sparkle

This week the challenge at Hambo is all about the bling. My kind of challenge. We had a very cute party elephant to play with also. Lots of fun and a perfect card for me to make at this time. I'm trying to get a few birthday cards made to give to the VA assisted living home where my Dad is at. I haven't had much time to "play" with spending time there with him and now looking for a job and new place to live! That's a long story better told elsewhere!
Anywho, here is my card for this weeks challenge.
I think he ate too much cake and that caused him to be a little green!  I added some googley eyes and paper pieced his ears. Thanks for a great image and challenge. Looking forward to next weeks.
Happy Crafting,
Shirley G


  1. Great job, Shirley! I wanted to try paper piecing for the first time on this cute little elephant since I saw some on the samples, but with the VCMP at OWH yesterday, I had to just "git 'er done!" Maybe I'll do another card with this image that uses paper piecing. Yours turned out so well!

  2. Great paper piecing and I love the googley eyes! Thanks for playing along with us at the Hoedown!

  3. Good luck with the hunt for the new place and job! This is so fun! Love his ears! Thanks for joining us at Hambo this week!

  4. Cute, love that you used polka dots on the ears! :)

  5. Shirley, your little green elephant was just celebratin' St. Patty's Day! I love the polka dots and the buttons. Cute card!!

  6. Yet another technique you are using that I now want to try ! The list just keeps getting longer ! Your elephant is stinkin cute :)
