Yer 'avin a giraffe!

Just had to run up a quick card today, for a 1 year old.
I don't make many cards for little ones, so I was a bit stumped.
Hope that this giraffe fits the bill  :-)


When I need to make something quickly I usually turn to a sketch for inspiration - and this fab one came from Tracy Shultz over at Card Patterns.

I am also entering this for the challenges at Papertake, who have a 'Creature Comforts' theme and Ladybug Crafts, where the theme is 'Animals'.
Ladybug Crafts has gone Digi this week, so they also have a new release and a fun blog hop.


Supplies -
Digi Stamp - Dustin Pike, Birthday Giraffe, coloured with Copics.
DP - DCWV Nana's Nursery, Baby Boy/Girl
Martha Stewart Lace Border Punch
Sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
Ribbon from my stash.
