Laughing Giraffes

Good morning - a bit late today lol!  What a fabulous day yesterday, it was so nice to be able to sit in the garden and bit warm!  Hope you all had a fabulous weekend whatever you did.  I have a card today using the cutest image from From the Heart Stamps:


How adorable are these two!! I knew I had some really furry paper somewhere that I wanted to use.  I found it and I know its not really giraffe patterned but I think it goes  ok and it is so furry!  Here is a side view:


I downloaded the Serengeti photo from Google Images.  The giraffes have been coloured with my Copics and I used Grand Nesties to cut the circles, adding some acetate.  The sentiment is computer genereated and cut out with Spellbinders ribbon banners.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Happy Mail
Artistic Inspirations - Monotone
Cards and More - Animal Friends
Creative Craft Challenge - All About Animals

Right I am off now to get some more washing on the line whilst this sunshine lasts!! See you tomorrow, thanks for stopping by. Take care xx
