Mama Elephant November Stampede

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop! Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store! You should have arrived here from Pamela's blog, but if you get lost along the way, you can just head back to the Mama Elephant blog for the full list.

For my card, I created a little scene with Arctic Penguins and the new Balloon Etc set! I love that I could use the numbers from Balloon Etc to customize the card for my friend's upcoming birthday. I watercolored the water surrounding the ice with traditional Japanese watercolors, and the sentiment is from Make a Wish.

To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away one of each of the new stamps released! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. Winners will be announced on the blog on the last Stamp Highlights day. You have up to 3 chances to qualify to win!

Just leave a separate comment for each!

Your next stop on the hop is Ashley. Have fun!
