Joy Giraffes

Boy we have some blizzard-like wind today. It snowed 4 inches yesterday, such wet snow too and now it's blowing everywhere!

Today's Featured Stamper at SCS is a fabulous designer Judy Rozema or StampingQueenJar. One thing I know about her is that she loves giraffes. So when I saw this card of her's I was inspired to make something like it. Her's has beautiful classy snowflakes, but I went an entirely different direction and did something whimsical...with giraffes.


Judy's snowflakes were off set in different directions on her squares, so I thought it would be totally cute to do that with the giraffes too. They are colored with Copics. I added some layers of squares. Judy had also given her's some beautiful sewing, but I did faux stitching around mine. Then to match the three giraffes I gave it three different joy sentiments in different stamp fonts.

The felt ribbon sort of gives it baby warmth too doesn't it?

So cute.

Thanks for stopping by today!
