My image is called Gemma the Giraffe and is so cute.  My papers are from a 6 by 6 stack of papers put the cover is not on the stack so I do not know what it is called but I think the papers are so cut.The yellow giraffe was part of the paper, I just cut him out.  Also the two stamps for the sentiment I do not know who made them Sad smile!!

Added stickles glitter glue icicles Viva pearl pen colors turquoise and cream. The little giraffe the is sitting was a button, cut the back off and smooth it out. I do have to say I had so much fun making this card, everything just feel together.

I found this ribbon, is that the most darling ribbon? I got it is from Hobby Lobby. Them I thought about train rides, do you take rides on the train when you go to the Zoo? This is Martha Steward train edger punch. Them I added some faux stitching for the tracks and a little something for the paper edge.

Just a few copic markers. I ended up looking up Giraffe on line to see how they look, I guess I looked at them but never really looked at them (no what I mean) but I could of made them look little more like a red head and their feet blend into more sandy color but he is a cutie!!

I was over at my friend Vicki blog yesterday and she had seen a video about this little boy who is 3 years and going to be 4 and has cancer and he wants LOTS of birthday cards. I could not think of a better place to post this and maybe you would like to post this on your blog also. DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANYONE THAT MAKES CARDS???? I DO!!!! The young boy has been diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a rare childhood cancer. Because of the illness, he won’t be able to celebrate in person with a large group of friends.

The address to send a card to is: Gabe Rooker, P.O. Box 403, Amherst, Ohio, 44001.

So if you can help this little guy out and put a BIG Smile smile on his face.

OMG this is SO ADORABLE!!! LOVE your card holder! LOL! You know I was just thinking ... I have a LOT of STUFF but I don't think I could rummage up this many zoo animals! With no young children around I guess I've shied away for that sort of thing! But you've certainly nailed this theme ... TOTALLY AWESOME Inside and OUT!!!
Have a lovely day ... HUGS from OHIO!
