Giraffe Card

Justine's card narrow 

Well it's not every day you get asked to make a giraffe card now is it! But that's what happened to me last week. DH's sister asked me to make a birthday card for her friend who was turning 40 and the specs were -  she loves giraffes and bright colours like lime green and pink.

So, here's what I came up with.....

Justine's card main 
The giraffe image is a child's colouring-in page from the net and the party hat is from a TSG set called Make A Wish.

Well I wish I had more to show you but it's all got to be revealed over at Shop and Crop first. But it shouldn't be long and I'll be back to share Xmas Gift Bags, Xmas Gift Tags and the new card kit for December....I think it's my favourite yet:-)))

Thanks for visiting....see you again soon.


Cards for Friends

Hey are you?

I hope you had a good weekend. I had my first real outing yesterday since the op.....DH and I went lounge suite shopping and boy was I ever exhausted after that. But have to get out there as I'm back to work on Thursday if I get the all clear from the surgeon that morning.

Can't believe it's 4 days since I shared anything! I have 2 cards in the current Australian Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft Magazine so thought I'd show you those in a bit more detail.....

I had fun playing with an Inkadinkado Stamp Set called "Eat Cupcakes"....

You can see the shine on the pic above from the embossed elements.....I had lots of embossing fun on both cards....

Well........I composed this post 10 minutes ago and then when I was publishing it my internet disconnected and I lost the we go again!

I'll make it quick this time....I've been playing with some new Basic Grey Marjolaine goodies from Shop and Crop along with a piece of Pink Paislee's Parisian Anthology embossed paper (so pretty), glammed up with a bottle of Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Dirty are the results....

The sentiment on the card above is a Kaisercraft Rub-On...very handy.

I'm feeling soooo much better today and yesterday so that's very encouraging. I even washed the dogs this morning I felt so good. Gonna papercraft the afternoon away now....I keep being told not to overdo I won't;-)

Thanks for popping in....
