Got Neck

I got this cute little giraffe from Paper Works Company and had to make a card for my youngest son, Tanner.  Those of you who have been around Tanner know he loves necks.  Ever since he was born, he has held onto necks for comfort and to show his affection.  When I saw "Gordie the giraffe" I knew I had to make a card about necks.  Tanner's favorite animal is a giraffe too.  I am sure you can guess why.  Just think of all that neck to touch....LOL!

This little stamp is just one of the safari friends Paper Works Company has to play with.  Others I have are Lucas the lion and Harriet the hippo.  Oh, I am going to have fun!  These great stamps are rubber, but I just stick the stamp onto my acrylic block and I am ready to create.   



Here is Gordie close-up.  You can see how I stamped him onto the safari spotted pattern paper that I used in the background too.

I saw Christi from Blessings on Paper use the phrase below for her products used and I like it!   Christi, I hope you don't mind I am using it too!

Darling giraffe, and I love how you stamped him on the dp -- looks very realistic (just cuter!). ;)

Of course I don't mind your using "my words" -- it's the truth, isn't it? ;) We're just doing what we can to help out the economy; right? Wouldn't want any of our favorite vendors going out of business; would we?! lol

I didn't know that about your son. That makes this card all the more adorable! Great job with all the details.

This card is so stinking cute!! I love everything about it, from the hemp across the bottom to the giraffe stamped on the b&t! I especially love how you fussy cut the palm tree from the patterned paper to use as the background for the giraffe!
