Waltzing Mouse Blog Party Hop!

It's the 17th and that means party time at Waltzing Mouse!!! Take out your stamps and join us - the challenge this time is to create a gift for a teacher + incorporating an animal!
Edited; LOL - Think it was changed after I made my notes about this hop (-: - anyway it is still about teacher appreciation - but no animals needed.

Here's my take;



A decorated little post-it-note pad ! I Think it is a perfect gift for a teacher - I "gave" this to myself and I've  finished half of the pad already (-:
The sweet elephant is from a wonderful set called Half Pint Heroines!
I'm entering this for the gift challenge at Moxie Fab World.

Have a great day and a great hop, hugs, Karin

This is a great idea Karin! Everyone needs post it notes laying around - and how wonderful to have them in such a beautiful cover! Super coloring on your cute ellie - and how creative to add the ABC for teacher!!

Oh Karin, this is such a clever card. You did a splendid job of coloring that elephant, and the addition of the letters in his basket is the perfect touch! Well done!
