It’s a girl!

Well… at least my giraffe is a girl, you can tell because she is pretty in pink, ‘sweet blush’ to be exact!  I needed to make something ‘cute’, and this is what I came up with when I combined a couple of my favourite challenges.  Heather has another Totally Hues Challenge and Scrapbook Boutique would like some stitching.  Have I told you that I used to ‘cross stitch’, there is a limit though, of just how much stuff you can hang on your walls or give away!  But as a consequence I now have every DMC colour and will never run out in my lifetime.  It is weird though, I would think nothing of sewing for hours and now I struggle just to add 3 stitches to a card, go figure.    So here it is…  hope you like it!

  1. This is fabulous! I love the layout and that giraffe is adorable!

  2. That is so cute….”she” looks great on the woodgrain background. Hey I was a cross stitcher too….yep know just what you’re saying about the copious amounts of DMC and not enough walls lol…..much easier and quicker to make and give-away cards! xL

  3. Beautiful card Therese, just love all the little details. I used to cross stitch too and agree, you only have so much wall space, Lol.
    Love your photo presentation by the way:)

  4. Your post about the stitching is hilarious…once you cross over to the dark side of the craftworld (i.e., card making), all other crafts seem to go by the wayside:) This card is seriously perfect! There are so many fabulous elements–the giraffe, the background stamping, the button over the edge, and of course the stitching–perfect!!

  5. I agree with Jocelyn – lots of awesome elements! The background stamping gives it so much depth, the three little stitches are darling and the girly giraffe is too cute. :)

  6. Super sweet card!!! love that pink giraffe.
