Mama Elephant August Stampede!

This is my third post of the day. Please click here to see my post for Mo's Digital Pencil Monthly Blog Hop or click here to see my post for August Krafty Peeks Day 2. Or you can scroll down to see all three of my posts. Thanks! =)



Hi and welcome to Mama Elephant August Stampede! If you arrived from Pearl Lui's Blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from Mama Elephant Blog. All new August stamps are available starting NOW in the Mama Elephant Store and we are celebrating it with a blog hop! We have the fabulous Heather Campbell guest designing for us this month and you wouldn't want to miss any stop of this hop! Without further ado, here is my card for the Stampede.



I chose to play with the adorably spooky Bootastic set. Those little characters are so fun! =) I stamped and colored them with Copic markers then trimmed only the heads out.


The card base is embossed with spiderweb dies and the sentiment is included in the Bootastic set.

That's all from me. It's time to send you to JJ Bolton's Blog. Don't forget to leave comments along the way, Mama Elephant is giving away 3 gift certificates worth $20.00 each to 3 lucky people! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. Winners will be announced on the Mama Elephant Blog on the last Stamp Highlight day.

That looks so cool. I actually like just the heads. More oomph! They kinda remind me of marshmallows, which is friendly and not scary. Good for kids.
