Lisa Somerville is this weeks Split coast stampers Featured Stamper 489
While looking at her gallery I noticed that she had a couple of cards with elephants on them so I decided to use that as my inspiration.
A couple of years ago I made this card for my husband's birthday
His company sponsored a helicopter which was to be used as part of a darting and tagging conservation exercise with some elephants. He got to watch the entire thing and even touch this beautiful mammoth while she was unconscious. All of this happened on his birthday, hence the subject matter for the card. What an experience! Needless to say the gift that I gave him that year sort of paled in comparison!
