Lovable Giraffe



Jen asked me to be a Guest Designer for the CAS challenge #258 on Splitcoaststampers today and I am happy to do it.  The challenge is to use a tag or tab on your CAS card. I splurged with three tabs, small ones.

I've decided this will be my husband's valentine card. He has seen all the others I have made and I thought this one was a bit masculine using "long neck".

I'm entering these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-use twine or string  The heart is hanging from twine.
Addicted to Stamps Challenge #75-Hearts
Come and Get It Challenges-Clean and Simple (CAS)


Recipe:
Stamps-PTI/Heart Prints stamp set (includes the heart, X & O, and Be Mine), Print Works Collection/It Had to be You, Art Impression/U-2284 (Giraffe)
Paper-PTI white cardstock,Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip
Ink-SU Cherry Cobbler, Memento Rich Cocoa

Benzi, I think it is just perfect. It says it in a cute way. I'm smiling from east to west so it will do the job.

Congrats on being the guest designer!!!
Love this card - the tags are perfect and love this little "long neck" holding the heart! Precious card and I know your husband will love it (especially when he sees the "long neck"! They're much better than out of the can anyway! LOL)

I'm sure Hubby will be delighted with this one. I love it. The red heart really makes everything pop which is a good thing. Love the three pieces to your sentiment. Enjoy the week ahead.

MaryH said...

Loving your cutie giraffe. His little heart sentiment is adorable, just as his expression is. Clever you to meet the tag theme like you did..super effective. Congrats on being given this assignment. I think you did A+ on this one. TFS & Big Hugs. We have pretty sunshine this morning after early rain. If one is out of the wind, it is most pleasant outside. Hope Alabam has similar.

Awwww, this is delightful. Fab coloring! Love the way the sentiments are attached. Wonder why I never think of using brads that way? Thanks for the inspiration.

Shirley said...

I have to tell you, I am in love with your giraffe!!! How very fun and lovable at the same time, Brenda!!

lovable is RIGHT! While your giraff is darling, my favorite part are the punched out sayings used in the corner like that! What a fabulous idea to say a lot in a small space (I need to learn to do that LOL). Wonderful card, Miss Benzi! hugs, de
