'Patch Pal Elephant'

Happy 1st of June xx Getting a bit excited here now that it's actually June, so not long till I get my stinker! Yeah I know, your gonna be sooooo bored of it by the time I get him. Any help with a name would be good. But its gotta be something to do with sport, all our animals are named after famous sports men
Charlie our greyhound Charlie Hodgson (ex England rugby player)
Freddie my leopard gecko Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff (ex England cricket player)
Stevie my sucky pleck fish Steve Harmison (ex England cricket player)

so you see we have a theme in our house....but if you have any suggestions other than a famous sports person & I like it, it will go in the list. Remember I am having a black & white traditional striped skunk & he is gonna be soooooooooo sweet!

The real reason I'm here today isn't to talk to you about stinkers, its to show you my latest creation for 
The Craft Garden where this month we have a fab colour combo for you....


I must admit when I first read the theme I freaked out big time. Then after telling Nige & him laughing at me freaking out (mmmm bad hubby) he suggested an animal that looks like a teddy. So here you have my creation, image chosen out of my gazzillions by Nige xx

I have had this image for ages, I won this & a few other a while ago from Clearly Digi Stamps. I know Doodle Pantry have taken over the images, but I can't find these cuties anywhere sorry x

This is gorgeous Shell. I love the cute image and beautiful colours.
I was thinking of Bradley (Bradley Wiggins) for your skunk's name or if you are into cricket the man of the moment seems to be Jos Buttler!

Ah this is so sweet, what a fabby card, Love the bright colours. I think your skunk should be called Nige 2 as he can be smelly just like Nige 1 (Haaa dont tell him I said that!!!) Love Hazelxx
