Celebrating a New Baby Giraffe!

I was in the process of doing this card when I noticed this video on CNN for a baby giraffe in Germany taking his first steps. He was so sure footed it was hard to believe. I encourage you to look here though, have patience with the commercial, and see a truly delightful family of giraffes.
The Cuttlebug Smoosh technique from Technique Junkies Newsletter was used for the background. The owner, Pat Huntoon, is running a special this month. Go here to learn about it. The stamp is from I Brake for Stamps. If you haven't looked at that site, you should. There are a variety of great stamps and the quality is very very good. The giraffe image is painted with Twinkling H2O's. A Stampin' Up Oval Punch was used for the space to put the words and can be found in their catalog on pages 180-181. The words are from a Hero Arts retired set. The Rhinestones are Mark Richards Crystal Stickers. Hobby Lobby has them, but I get mine from A Cherry On Top online. The ribbon is from Michaels.

I hope you had a nice weekend and thanks for stopping by "the blog".
