Ellie who? Ellie the Elephant!

Happy middle of May to everyone. . . We are so close to being done with the school year and this year is my sons' last year of Jr High!  I can't believe he's going to the High School already, well I guess that just aged me a little for you all huh?  Anyway, this year my niece graduates High School so I'm off to Arizona at the end of this month to commence her high school experience and visit with my mom and brother.  Should be a hoot!
Enough of my goings on, off to my newest piece of greeting art and another Challenge or at Stamping with the Dragon with the super cute image called Ellie Elephant from our Sponsor; Di's Digital Downloads.  This challenge is a great one because it includes both a sketch and recipe (1 digi, 2 patterned papers, 1 embellishment)  
Prize: 5 digi images from store

So stop by the Stamping with the Dragon Challenge Blog for some DT inspiration and a super challenge!   I'm really anxious to see all of the entries and what your imaginations can come up with!
