National Giraffe Day!

I'm going with this title because I just checked my favorite blogs & found that one of my favorite sites has also done this same little guy/girl? Diane's Country Cards & Crafts has posted a beautiful giraffe today. This is a Mo Manning image I think the whole world is in love with!

The paper is actually wallpaper from a sample wallpaper book I have had & almost given away several times now.  I remembered it had some "jungle" themed paper so I grabbed it last nite before I started the great paper hunt thru all my stash.  The vine is a die from Marianne Design and the flowers from those good old Michael wedding buckets. I'm sure you are all hoping my buckets will run dry one of these days!  lol
I'll post this & go back to edit so I can link you to the other gorgeous giraffe!  I've learned the hard way if I try to get out now, I sometimes lose everything I've got.

Catch you all later!


  1. Great use of your wallpaper sample!! Your coloring and die cut are just perfect too : )

  2. I tried to comment a couple of times and the box wasn't there. It finally showed up. Thanks for the shout out. I love your giraffe. I wouldn't have thought that was a wallpaper sample. It's perfect. As always, love your coloring. The blue flowers go so well. I have one more animal posting Thursday and then I think I may try my hand at some scenes. I haven't really done any of them yet.

  3. One of my all time favorites. Those eyes are so expressive. The blue flowers are a perfect match too. Super card, Sherri.
