Elephant Inchie & Anything Goes Moo

One day, Lion, king of the beasts wakes up and decides he wants to see what's happening around his kingdom. He see a zebra and yells out "Hey you, in the striped pyjamas, who is the mightiest of all animals?" asks Lion. "Of course it is you, Master!" replies the zebra cowering. Moving on, Lion sees a baboon. "Hey, you with the red butt, who is the mightiest of all animals?" "You, you and only you my Lord!" replies the baboon quivering with fear. Then Lion spots an elephant. "Hey you with the garden hose, who is the mightiest of all animals?" Lion yells out. The elephant grabs Lion with his trunk. "Alright, no need to get nasty just because you don't know the answer!", yells Lion as he is flies half way across the continent.

Every Inchie Monday has Elephant today. That's two cutters in a row. Here's another cutie my husband & I drew together. Can't wait to see others' cuties.





And I am now officially starting my collection of 26 Moo's for this year. A Moo is a tiny card sized 2.8cm x 7cm (1.1" x 2.8"). I know the team over at Moo Mania claim this is the second challenge for the year. But, aha, the previous one was published in 2014, this, Anything Goes theme, is the first for 2015. So here goes:

  1. Great joke! We must think alike because I have an elephant joke on my page too - without looking at yours first! What a cutie your elephant is. Fabulous eyes. Well done. Your moo flower is beautiful.

    1. :) Thanks Kia! I know what you mean about the jokes, I never looked at yours either before posting. Elephants are like that - too cute. Why don't you have a go at the Moo as well.

  11. That sweet little elephant would never throw someone I'm sure :) Love that Moo as well. I'm glad they allow all sizes though as I really don't like working too small. I make an exception for the Inchies, mostly because I just love all the cute work I see in our group.

    1. I know what you mean about the cuteness. That's why I love working small. And thank you for your nicenesses. Would love to see another Moo (in any size) from you.

  13. Zoe, you know you send me the nicest messages, I have to blush when I'm reading them! Thank you so much for all your friendship and support!! You are awesome!!! And yes, we hope to get what we ask for,for our property. It's a complicated process and unfortunately very long and drawn out!(I think that is toughest part. The uncertainty of when it's all gonna happen,....... anyway,......) Thank you so much for all your good wishes!!!

    I just love your lil elephant, and that rose is just outstanding!!! Wow!! I'm not familiar with the monomania challenge. I would love to check it out, but I had to drop the Twinchies, because it got to be too much! Anyway, I will just have to enjoy the pleasures of looking at all of your beautiful and creative work!!
    You are so special and beautiful, yourself!
    Ciao! :0) (hugs) Annette

    1. Oh stop it - you deserve niceness! Oh yeah, forget the twinchies, nothing's happening there. I can't give up the inchies, however. And this year I want a Moo collection because the size kills me. Plus, small frequent projects are easier to manage along my massive ones I do for competitions.
