More neck than a Giraffe!

Well a big happy Bank Holiday Weekend to you all! At the moment we have blue skies and sunshine don't know how long that will last though! I'd like to welcome my new followers and a big thank you for joining me I am truly delighted!

For today's card I have used another cute Bugaboo image from the ones I won the other day.  This one comes in a set of seven and I think they will be so useful:

I have coloured him with Copics and added Glossy Accents to his feet.  The papers are Nitwits from the Jungle Zoo Too collection.  I haven't really added a lot of embellishments as I decided it would be ideal for a children's card.  I have used Spellbinders to cut and mat the image and for the circles.  The number two has been cut using my Dienamics die and the ribbon is from my stash.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Creative Belli - Animals
Creative Card Crew - Ribbon
Creative Craft - Anything Goes
Ladybug Craft Ink - Birthday
Karen's Doodles - Something for Kids
Alota Rubber Stamps - Animals
Two Sisters - Anything Goes
Craft Your Days Away - Just for Children

I hope you all have a lovely weekend, I would have loved to of gone to Lili of the Valley Open Day today but we are going to a big party tonight so I don't have time today and tomorrow - well let's just say I don't think I would be up to driving to Leeds lol!!  Thanks so much for looking and any comments you may leave, take care xx
