Follow Your Dream

To travel the world on the back of an elephant would be so fun, wouldn't it?  I've never ridden on an elephant before but I guess one would need to get used to the motion, just like riding on the back of a camel.  So thrilling! I LOVE the Half-Pint Heroines and I couldn't wait to use them for this week's Waltzing Mouse challenge.

The lovely sketch this week is from Lynn :

WMSC97
Here's my card:
I stamped all the images on a white cardstock, and coloured them with these Copic Markers - Elephant (C1, C3, C5, E01), Girls' faces (E000, E01, E11, R21), Hair (Y11, Y26 and E07, E99, E11), Rug and carriage (Y26, Y11, R30, R32, R35, BG53, BG70), Birds (B00 & G00), Outline (BG11).  The sentiment was stamped using Memento Danube Blue. The patterned papers are from Studio Calico Abroad 6x6.

Did you see that I sewed on the card? I finally decided I should just use my other Sewing machine instead of old faithful (my first sewing machine), and I'm so glad I did.  Sigh! Why did I wait so long ;)

Thank you for visiting me.  

Take care
Kary
