I have missed you all and it is so good to be posting a card. This little cutie is one I made before Christmas bit didn't get round to posting. I know that I am turning a corner and feel ready to craft again because when I visit all your lovely blogs I am wanting to get into my craft room and do a spot of colouring.
Dad is still waiting for his operation and is still not able to eat but the doctor doesn't seem to concerned about that as long as he is drinking his high protein drinks. I am missing my parents so much at the moment. I have had a rotten cold since Christmas and it has left me with a bad cough so I can't visit because his defences will obviously be low. I have decided though that sitting at home and worrying is not doing me any good and we all know what the best tonic to that is don't we!!!
I have missed my DT posts for this week but hopefully will be back in full swing for the next challenges. Thank you all once again for your understanding.
Anyway on to my card. I have titled this little chappie "Your having a Giraffe" because that is what my daughter and friends are always saying and it reminds me of them every time I look at him. (I think he looks like a he).
The image is from Teddy Bo & Co and is called Teddy Bo Bea and this particular image is called What a Jolly Bow. I have coloured the image with Fkeximarkers. (One of my New Year Resolutions is to note down the colours I use so that I can add the info to my posts). The papers are from Sassy Designs.
I have used a doily from my own stash. The ribbon is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
The butterfly is from Memory box which is available from many on line stores.
The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamp. Love these, I find them so useful.
