I hope everyone had a good Christmas. We had a lovely time and our living room now bears a close resemblence to a toy store! I love this week between Christmas and New Year. It's a time to get all those little jobs done that you keep putting off all year because you're too busy! One of those jobs is to tidy my craft room - quite a daunting task but I'm determined to do it!

I've used the sketch on Katherina's blog for this card. I need to make a few thank-you cards for Thomas' Christmas presents and I think this cute elephant is perfect for this kind of card. I've coloured him with watercolour pencils and H2O's. The paper is BG Euphoria and I got the idea to use the mesh from Aiga's blog.

One of my new years resolutions is to decorate the inside of my cards but I didn't have enough paper left over this time. I will definitely start doing this in the new year though!
