It's birthday time over at Take the Pixie challenge!

It's time for a new challenge over at the Take the Pixie Challenge and this week is a nice easy peasy one...


Birthdays!

We always need this in our stash so now's the time to get ahead!  Here is my make using the sweetest elephant EVER - here is Peanut the Elephant from the Circus collection!


I told you he was the cutest elephant ever!  I matched him up with papers from My MInds Eye Fine and Dandy collection (from Quixotic Paperie here) and used some floss with my Sew Easy Tool (here) for the stitching.  Here's a close up of him...



Go here to see more inspiration over at the Take the Pixie Challenge blog - you won't be disappointed!
