Go Wild!

Hello Everyone, I hope today finds you tip top, but kind thoughts going out to those of you who are struggling a bit that things will get better soon.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my celebratory cards and the good wishes for Alistair's birthday and our Anniversary. Everyone is so kind.

I've got another birthday card today, this one was made for Kerr who is my friend Dale's Grandson and we can hardly believe that he is now 15 years old, I remember holding him when his mum brought him home from hospital and it seems like yesterday. Kerr has always been a lovely little boy and he's turning into a super young man, anyway here's the card,
Kerr is at an age where I'm finding it difficult to make an appropriate card for him, but I thought this image from a fabulous set of stamps from Creative Stamping magazine a month or so ago was perfect, and I know everyone love elephants, so out of all the fabulous animal stamps in the set, I settled on this wonderful one of mum and baby elephants. Background made with Oxides I was rather pleased with how it turned out, and I know Kerr liked it as he phone to say thank you.

Talking about elephants, we were so amused watching The Zoo last night, and the cute antics the new baby elephant got up to, and the spoiled brat of a chimpanzee called Tina, I just find animals provide fabulous entertainment. Does anyone watch this programme?

So that's me for now, pretty cold here today so I'm staying cosy indoors, take care everyone and see you soon,

I think teenage boys are the hardest to make for Kate and this is perfect, what a lovely image.
I enjoy watching the goings on at the zoo too, they are all such characters!

I bet your grandson will love this card because it is for a man or a boy with the great colours and the majestic elephant. I have seen this program and it is so cute. I enjoy animal shows and often watch one that comes from the Berlin Zoo which is on the Love Nature channel

Hi Kate
Brilliant card for a teenager. They are awkward to make for, especially lads.
Did make me think of the Bow Wow Wow song from the 80's "Go Wild in the Country" lol!!!

A fabulous card Kate and the elephant mother and baby are adorable and love the scene you have made in such beautiful colours so no wonder Kerr was delighted with it. I'm not sure if I have seen The Zoo, but those programmes from zoos and animal parks are always fun to watch. x
