Gigi, the Glitzy Giraffe


Let me tell you, getting snowed in isn't all that it's cracked up to be!!!! Kids went back to school for the first time this week - thank goodness for small miracles!!!! They have needed constant entertainment and supervision because they are so out of their routine. Even sending them outside didn't last long enough, it was way too cold! And this meant no stamping time for me like I thought I might!!! I did get a card done for the Clearly Inspired Challenge over on the Clear Dollar Stamps blog. The theme this time is to "Glitz it Up" by using anything that sparkles and shine on your card or project. I used Gigi Giraffe, using Copic markers and a bit of Stickles on her spots. During my cleaning and organizing phase (didn't last very long!!!) I ran across this baby themed paper by Making Memories called Animal Crackers as well as the felt star brads. I simply couldn't resist putting it to use. To the brads I added the rhinestones and added some zig zag stitching as well. Please play along with the challenge, you could win a free stamp set of your choice if you do!!!!!
