Elephant Birthday Card

Today was an extremely random day.  Have you ever had one of those days where a bunch of little random things just happen?  A couple of years ago, I would've gotten angry at some of of the things that happened today.  Today, I just brushed them off and laughed.  Little things are not worth getting worked up about (I wish someone would've drilled this into my head starting when I was a teen!).  Plus, random is always interesting and funny!

Since my nephew got his birthday card in the mail today, it is safe to post what I sent him! He turned 3 last week.

The image is free with purchase at Tiddlyinks.  Isn't he so adorable? I used Copics to ink him up, glossy accents on the balloons, Stampin Up CS, stamp, ink, and pom pom trim.  The paper is a loose sheet that broke off from an old stack.

I've had a lot of followers and comments from Diana's blog hop and I'm slowly (but surely!) going to comment on each of your blogs. :) I appreciate all the best wishes and all the comments that you guys left for me! 

Peace, love, and Sabotage!
