Lily T. Elephant packs her trunk and wonders what sort of jungle is this?

Hello hello.  Greetings, velkommen, nice of you to drop by.  I'm playing catch up with The Craft Barn Calendar Challenge where Izzy has already posted the final weeks challenge, but this is my week 10 tab.  Nothing forgotten, I've just been a bit slow with this one.   Hopefully it is worth the wait.  What do you mean you weren't waiting!  Just me then.  I have wheeled out a few of my trusty friends to help with the theme - Trees. 

I wanted to use my Sizzix original tree die so was looking for a green/leafy background and found this paper in my stash.  Haven't got any details on it but it's banana leaves with rain drops printed on it.  Amazing, and it photographed quite well too!  So I cut two scalloped hearts (Sizzix framelit die) from the background paper and two trees from various handmade papers.  The elephant is also a Sizzix original cut from Soesterens Grene lily leaf paper.  I did some detailing with a black pen and added a googly eye.  That's May.  Elephants in the jungle.  Of course.   

Entering for The Craft Barn Calendar Challenge Week 10 - Trees

Be safe, be warm, be happy but most of all leave Lily a comment cos she's feeling a bit lonely.  Maybe there's a friend just around the next tree.  A stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet. 


  1. What a fun calender page, love the hand made paper you have used for the tree.

  2. This is really cheerful and fun and I love the combination of shapes and patterns you've used.
