Zoo Babies Makes Me Smile


Happy Easter! 

Have you got lots of yummy Easter Eggs lined up for tomorrow?  

Sorry I don't have an Easter card for you today but one for the Less is More challenge.  We are challenged to make a card with a theme of Makes Me Smile.  Now chocolate definitely makes me smile but that's for tomorrow.  

Instead I thought about our trip to the Zoo last Wednesday.  My father needed a lift to Edinburgh Airport so I thought I would take the children and add in a trip to the Zoo.  It was quite daunting as it's a 2 1/2 hour drive there and back and I'm not sure of the Edinburgh roads.  However we made it to the Airport and then the park and ride and onto the Zoo with no bother at all.  That definitely made me smile!  Phew!!

Loads more smiles as we had lots of giggles going round the Zoo.  Before the children get too old to come along with Mum (they are 14 and 12), it was great to have time together to share a memorable day.  That makes me smile.  

For my card I coloured the lion using Stampin' Write Markers - So Saffron and Peach Parfait and stamped on Whisper White.  I added a few lines of Sahara Sand so he wasn't floating.  This was attached to a card base of Naturals White.  I made a window panel of So Saffron using the Windows Framelits and rounded the corners.  The panel is popped up on Dimensionals.  

I decided to make this a birthday card as it will be our great nephew's 1st birthday in May and I thought this just looked so cute!  Itty Bitty Banners and the matching framelits made the sentiment with some Candy Dots to finish off.  Loving these Candy Dots, are you? 

Did you see the pandas?  I know you are asking.  Unfortunately no.  They were all booked up!  With all my planning and googling maps etc I didn't think to book a time slot. :(   
Just means we will have to return for another visit.
