A Goofy Giraffe for a Birthday

     I have a dear friend who loves giraffes and at least twice each year, for her birthday and Christmas, I try to find a new giraffe image or stamp to make a card for her.  This year, as I was over exploring on the Stamp Junkies FB group, I saw this giraffe in a new set by Angie Blom.  As an artist, her work is new to me but I fell in love with a card she had done using and image from this new set and I went right over to her shop and bought it!  There are a few different giraffe images (and sentiments) in the set so I'll be able to do three or four cards for my friend with that set.  What a bargain!  lol

     I did a fairly simple design, flat and not too much embellishment (so good as a masculine card, too) because it has to go in the mail.  She and I now live about 350 miles apart although we once shared the same home town.


Colored with ProMarkers
All the frames are cut w/ QuicKutz dies
2 sentiment bit cut with Avery Elle dies
Red satin bow, hand tied


     Have a great weekend and find some Happy Crafting time.  :-D  NanaConnie

Delightful card. The amusing giraffe is even more quirky by being set at an angle. Terrific card.
