Another cutie pie!

I managed to get some time to play this afternoon in between my friend coming for coffee and then my in-laws popping over with the girls cousin Millie :-) Danni and Millie had loads of fun playing dress-up and I lost count of the number of costume changes they had!

Anyway.. onto my card...here is another cutie from the new release Sweet Pea Plate 2 collection. I was so excited when looking through my papers and found these little giraffe's playing. I knew my PCS Giraffe would want to play too! The colours also really attracted me. They are from a baby stack by Dovecraft. The embossed border is created using CB Embossing folder "Frills". I am ashamed to say I've had these a while now but will get them out more as I love the effect.

I thought it would be fun to add some fibres to my giraffe's tail and also as babies hair. My hubbie asked if I had been down the plug hole when he see baby...Yuck! Er no! Men hey! Did give me a giggle though!

Image coloured with Prismacolor Pencils, sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The cute little yellow stars are from Silly Monkey Crafts.

Just a quick post tonight but before I go I just want to thank Michele for the above cute award.


Also Sue for this pretty one too :-) Thank you so much ladies and do pop over to their blogs to say "hi" and check out their inspirational work.

Have a great evening and see you Sunday now for the new High Hopes challenge. Right off to see what you've all been upto now ;-)

Hugs,
