good omen

how is this for a good omen?

today my daughter and i went up to london zoo. amy had an interview as a trainee reptile keeper. she has just finished her masters degree in zoo conservation at plymouth uni and really wants this job!!!!

she thinks it all went well, but she wont know for a week or so.

anyway when we arrived home i checked my post and found that i had won a freebie from papercraft essencials magazine. i made amy a quick card with one of the stamps, it is very appropriate, dont you think?
the stamp is called' jungle pals' from woodware craft collection.
i stamped the image twice then coloured the crocodile in on one and the background on the other, i used sakura pens and aqua promarkers. i cut out the coloured croc and layered it on top of the background with foam pads.
the background paper is a giraffe pattern i had in my ever expanding stash. i punched out some leaves and wrote the greeting on with the sakura pens.
she liked the card as she loves crocodiles, she spent 3 months in peru doing a research project into feeding habits of caimen crocs!
thanks very much papercrafts mag!
