Stampin' Up! Swirly Bird - Simple Card CASE - and yesterday's trip to the Zoo!

Swirly Bird Stampin' Up!

Good morning everyone! 
How's it going?

So we had an absolutely FAB time yesterday with Little Hippy - Mr Hippy took us to Colchester Zoo. Now, as I explained yesterday, I don't do zoos. I don't bet on horses, I don't do circuses (with animals in) - I don't do anything that exposes animals as entertainment for humans but with an open mind I went along as I had been educated that Colchester Zoo do a lot for conservation and animal charities.

The Zoo (voted 11th best zoo in the world) opens with beautiful gardens and several gorgeous statues:

We had fun on the train that takes you around the park and into the Lemur enclosure - today the Lemurs were hiding from us humans:

We had a really lovely day and learnt a lot and Little Hippy loved it!

After a long day a simple card...
I was exhausted after all that walking. I have being trying to increase my steps each day and although I didn't hit as many walking around a zoo as I thought I would, I did more than enough for me! I was shattered at the end of it and so I thought I would do a CASE.

I have CASEd Val Moody's gorgeous Swirly Bird card. I have changed the original sentiment and I've used slightly different colours. This is such a great card that uses very little supplies.
