It's a G Thang

Ah here we are beginning the last week in January....can you believe it?! What other way to start the week than with an awesome Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #53. I really liked this week's sketch and I really liked the way my card came out. I'm a super huge giraffe fan (I will one day own a giraffe named Marty) so when I came across this stamp set "Mindy's Zoo" by Autumn Leaves I was in seventh heaven! Until now I really hadn't used the giraffe stamps but this weeks sketch made it super easy to do. Here's my rendition:

Paper: DCWV mat stack Animal Crackers, The Paper Company
Stamps: "Mindy's Zoo" by Autumn Leaves
Cuttlebug, Martha Stewart circle cutter

I thought I'd share my very first card I ever made. Don't laugh, it was an attempt. This was in February of 2004 for the birth of my son. It was his birth announcement and at the time I thought I did such a good job. When he was born I colored the stroller blue since we didn't find out his gender during pregnancy. Looking back now I've come so far using color and layers and embellishments! What a difference 6 years makes!
