Elephants in the Room!

Hello my crafty peeps! I hope your Sunday is going well! We finally got snow here last Thursday. Can you believe it?! lol We have been so blessed in Hanover PA as we have had a  mild winter with no plowable snows, until Thursday that is. I think it will be an early spring and I'm all for that even though it hasn't been a rough winter. 

So I have two adorable (at least I think so, lol) Valentines that I made for my two youngest grands. I completely CASed these cards I found on Pinterest. You can find the original HERE. They are the same but different. lol I used washi tape as well, whoot, whoot! Don't often use washi, but I love it. Ok, I think this puts me up to 10 Valentines to date!

Thanks for stopping by today and visiting with me a spell! I always love when visitors come. I will make sure to visit you too as I love visiting as well. Thanks for your sweet comments, they always bring pure sunshine and joy to my life! As always my recipe for this card is at the bottom of my post. 




Crafty hugs,

These are the cutest elephants, Brenda! Who can help but smile when you see them! The grands will love them. Great job using Washi tape. It's like decorative paper around here. I love it but seem to hoard it! Stay safe during the snow storms. I hope it will be an early spring for you.

This is some serious cute overload Brenda! Those stacked elephants are beyond cute and then the grunge background makes it perfect! Love the washi tape too - I have some and always forget to use it!

What a delightful & catchy post title! And both of these cards are just as cute as can be. I'm guessing you did some masking with the Ellie-s and if so, that was great work. It's a darling image,(nice balloon bling too) and the background, the design...everything is just so well done. Your grands will love this. Some good spattering on each one of these. Yay for Washi! TFS & Hugs. MM

Your quartet of ellies in the room add a whole new level to the definition of cute and adorable! Each stacked pair is stinkin' darling, and oh, what lovely stages you've created for them, with the splattered backgrounds, the polka-dots, the heart balloons (with shimmer!) and the whispers of gold! I think the two grands receiving these will be over-the-moon thrilled with these gems! Keepsakes to be treasured!
