Elephants on parade - oh and a horse or two

Some more CCC15 cards for August. Yes I had a colouring session or two and then found other elephants already coloured.

First off here is another horse pair, this time combined with Crimson Brusho on the card base.

Here are my assortment of elephants

PowerPoppy Shabby Chic

Last night I received a text cancelling this morning's lessons because my students grandma had been taken very  ill and was at the A&E department. Exactly one month after my Mum had been taken ill so I really felt for them all. Thankfully they have got her health under control so I was able to make this little get well card using the PowerPoppy shabby chic challenge.

The image is a digital one from PowerPoppy and I used Victorian Velvet distress ink along with Copic White and Copic Markers to create this card. The embossed panel is made with a Sizzix folder and was a gift from Angie. I actually had to invest in that folder as it is part of a pack of two lovely ones.
Here is a slightly closer view of the image.

Here's to improved health all round and a good week.

Rose for Mum

My last card for my Mum - to go on the flowers at tomorrow's funeral. I miss her so much right now - she always had the answer when you needed advice and we loved her deeply.

I will also add a little card from Tess her Springer Spaniel - Tess is living with us now and has settled well. This is Tess at the park on Thursday.
