what is it about elephants?

Just getting a late night post in, it's nearly midnight and I really should be away to my bed (I'll be sorry in the morning).
The challenge over at Less is more  this week is "Animals" and I have used my favourite animal the elephant. I am still in Brusho mode with these, practice makes perfect as they say.
I would like to enter both of these into the weekly challenge.
Here they are both together
and individually
Using a combination of brusho colours
Elephant is from Tim Holtz "Life Adventure" set
The word "strength" is taken and cut out from a longer quote stamp.
Background again a combination of Brusho colours
Elephant stamp is "Elephants" Joanna Sheen Jayne Netley Mayhew collection
Sentiment is from Clarity stamps word chain No. 5.
Thanks for visiting and I am away to my bed now before I turn into a pumpkin!!!
See you soon
