You made my heart smile!

Hello Everyone,

Happy Sunday!! I hope your all enjoying your weekend! It's such a gorgeous day here in northern Minnesota. The air was crisp this morning which is another sign of fall being right around the corner. I have had a busy day already but I did manage to sneak away for just a bit and make this card for a few challenges that I wanted to participate in. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy it:)



I cut this cute giraffe from the Create A Critter cartridge at 5.24 using my gypsy and all the layers. The grass I cut at 1" and I also cut a layer with my fringe scissors just to try and give it some depth. I used My Creative Time ~Scallop and Stitched circle along with My Creative Time ~Many Greetings stamp set for my sentiment. If you are looking for some great sentiments, pop over to Emma's blog, My Creative Time and check her sets out. They are awesome and you will love them all:)

I am entering it in the following challenges:
1.) Love to Crop ~It's a jungle out there
2.) Cricut Cardz Challenge #89~It's a jungle out there

Thanks for visiting,
Sherrie K

  20. This is SO sweet! You'll certainly make the recipient smile just as much as they make you smile. :o) The colors are fabulous... the lighter shades just explode off of the beautiful brown background. (and I LOVE that ribbon! I have a thing for brown ribbon.) The embossing on the giraffe is lovely, as are his sparkly spots and doodles. I love how he's nestled in between grass borders. Beautiful work as always, my friend! :o)

    Hugs and blessings!
