CASology #267

Welcome to Week 267 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:

Originally I was going to make a card featuring a whale because blue whales are the biggest animals ever to have lived (as far as we know) and apparently their tongue alone can weigh as much as an elephant.  How's that for a crazy fact?  However, while looking for a whale stamp I stumbled across Ella the Elephant from (appropriately) Mama Elephant and she completely distracted me from the whale idea.  I think she still conveys the cue word pretty well though so I went with it.  

Looking forward to seeing what direction the cue word takes you.  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design team then play along!
