Fun at the Zoo Card

It's Spring Break here this week, and a fun thing to do with the kids is go to the Zoo. We love going to the Zoo. Terry and I have taken our kids together for the past few years, and all the kids have the best time. Most of you know that I love Cute Animal Cards! I love to make them, not just for kids but every event. Here I have a Monkey on the back of an Elephant juggling cupcakes, now that would be fun to see at the Zoo. lol

Please go to Terry Su's to see her Zoo Card.

What a Happy Monkey

I used hemp thread, and put around the button holes twice.

Now that is a cute Animal card... I love the Monkey juggling the cupcakes clever idea! And the touch of glitter on the elephants ear adds just the right amount of sparkle.

Of course I love all of your great photos. The monkey juggling yummy-looking cupcakes on the elephant really takes the cake! I love all of the details on this card. And yes, you're known for your animal cards!!! You go, girl!

What an inventive idea to have the monkey juggling cupcakes. And I see that the elephant has caught one! A fun card!
