Ralph the Raven or Russell the Crow!!!

Morning and this is my third and last post of three today--hope you are still with me lol.I also have a little Holly-Ann(9yrs)wisdom??? to share today earlier this week Ellie and Holly brough a young injured crow in Holly wanted to call it Ralph(she thought it was a Raven-but Ellie won with Russell Crowe)it was put into an empty rabbit hutch and fed and watered(said rabbit had died last week and now buried in the garden)Ellis had the bright idea of keeping the hutch for injured animals and Hollys quick response was but what if we find an injured elephant??????-how her mind works boggles me-think we might need a larger hutch lol.UPDATERussell is eating well and looking quite perky had a couple of flutters in kitchen to stretch his wings-but can't fly-so see how things go-might be another addition to animal farm!!!

Anyway onto card or cards-we have an ATG challenge at Love To Craft and I was asked for an anniversary card so two birds with one stone springs to mind--anyway she wanted black and white so I made two cards identical but different colour combination---The oval frame is Spellbinders but all the other dies are from Tattered Lace/ribbon and pearls from stash--she chose the 2nd one but the first was used for my SIL anniversary --so result all round.

Made me smile Carol, you might need to re-think the size of the rubbit hutch if Elephants are on the agenda. It's a lovely romatric card in the monochromatic colours.
