Mama Elephant August Stampede


Hey peeps!  It's Mama Elephant August Stampede time!  Have you been keeping up with the peeks over on the Mama Elephant blog?  Well, they're all loaded and ready to go at the Mama Elephant store!  For this month's stampede, I'm working with the new set Message Bands!   This set is perfect for a CAS gal like me, but can't you see these used with photographs?  


For my project, I made a sweet little baby card:)  My need for baby cards seems to go in waves and lately, it's been a tsunami!  (What was 8 months ago? lol)  So I paired up the "Whoa Baby!" stamp from Message Bands with the teeny baby bear of Nursery Deco and the balloon bouquet of Up and Away.  Who can resist a mini bear holding a bouquet of balloons?    
   

Most of the coloring was done with Copics, but I did color one balloon with my glitter pen.  I even used a little of the glitter pen to color in the sentiment.  A little glitter never hurt nobody;)


To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away 3 gift certificates worth $20 each to 3 lucky people! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. Winners will be announced on the blog on the last Stamp Highlight day.
