After a 2-year pregnancy and a 6-week labour Dokkoon, the Elephant at the Melbourne Zoo,  finally gave birth to a 110 kilo baby girl on the weekend (that’s just over  242lbs  in the old money). Mother & baby are doing well. Check out the Melbourne Zoo website for gorgeous pictures and more stories about “baby” (name yet to be decided – no doubt a poll in the HeraldSun will provide the answer!)

To congratulate them all on a job well done , I have just popped this card in the post .

I’ve used Rose Red ink and card stock, the “kissing” technique to get the pattern on the ear, a piece of Tea Party DSP then finished off with some “Elephant” grey  taffeta ribbon.  A bit cute don’t you think?

I hope they like it!



Melbourne Zoo is celebrating the long-awaited arrival of a baby elephant.

Here’s one of the first pictures of the baby girl.
