bittenbythebug2 elephantly speaking

happy monday! this week im the host over at BBTB2 and chose our challenge to use an elephant from any cart and any theme.  i went ahead and made 3 cards to share with you. be sure to check out the fun creations from the rest of my fantabulous dt sisters . be sure to play along too we love when you do that! 
this will be a bit picture heavy :)

for my first card i used create a critter cartridge
thought it would be fun to have a mom daughter duo :) arent they cute :) 
i used a martha stewart border punch and added some buttons. 
computer generated the saying, gee i sure hope the recipient knows i mean  having a baby around is gonna be a ton of fun and doesnt think im calling their kid fat lol 
for card #2 i used create a critter again. 
i love this cartridge :) 
i added heart cuts for the engine smoke .cute eh ;) 
isnt this elephant a cutie :) 
i added buttons for the wheels.

for my last card i used zoobaloo
i love this sweet little elephant :)
i used a martha stewart border punch on this and added some pearls.
i used jasmine cartridge for the corners and computer generated the saying. 

thanks so much for checking out my long post today and thanks for your sweet comments they always make me smile, thank you for that! have a great rest of day and dont forget to come play along .xxxshelly
