Thank You Card - Tons of Thanks

This week when the cartridges were 29.99 at Joann's I decided to treat myself to the Every Day Pop Up Cards. I think there are so many adorable images in this cartridge and I have not been buying very many cartridges this year at all. I don't even know if I will play with the pop up feature, but the images alone are worth it. This cute elephant was one of them, and it is so cute. I thought it would go perfectly with this sentiment from Scrappy Moms. I used some shimmery silver paper for the main part of the elephant and then embossed it with the Mosaic embossing folder. I just love how he turned out. I also used a half off coupon at M's and got the We R Memory Keepers pink brad setter. I never had a paper piercer anyway and I was tired of being limited in how and where I could use my brads. It was only about 3.50 with my coupon. I bought a thick piece of fun foam and cut it in half and I am using that for the foamy mat. Now I can not only put my holes perfectly placed but they can also be anywhere I want. I love that. So I lined the scallops that were fully visible with light blue brads.

He is so adorable! I love elephants, in fact, I have a collection of The Herd series (the baby figures). :)

Makes me think of "Water for Elephants". LOL
