Have a Snappy birthday

Hi everyone, Happy World Book Day today!
I love books but just don't get the time (or peace) to read as much I used to - now it's usually craft magazines, read during a car journey ~ with Richard driving though!
......I'll never forget the day we were driving down the motorway and as we passed a car, the driver was reading a magzine that she had draped over her steering wheel!

For my card today I've used a Stampin' Up hostess set called Long Fellows.  I printed the sentiment on the computer and then stamped the crocodile image using the stamp-a-ma-jig for placement.  I punched the holes in the blue card using the Cinch and tied gingham ribbons through them.

I coloured the crocodile with Copics - YG03, YG06, G14
The lines around the outside of the base card were doodled with a SU marker ~ real red.

This card is on it's way to Australia, for my little nephew's birthday :)

Thank you for stopping by today.
Hope you have a lovely evening!
