Jerome the Giraffe... and Friends

I've been busy.  Seriously busy... the Valentine's card sale went extremely well - I sold about 60 cards and made $244 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation!!   My card supply is now very low... so it's time to re-stock, and that means getting busy.  I'm trying to do a couple a night so I've got enough for every day cards (birthday, get well, thank you, wedding, baby, sympathy) and get some Mother's day cards started - because in a couple months I'll do it all again!

I completed these last night:

(The giraffe with attitude above will be entered into 
Annabelle Stamps challenge - Say it with Polka Dots 
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 21 Stamped Flower Image)
Our Creative Corner "Cut it Out"  -  well, I did.  3 times... and layered)

Images:  Dog Gone Stamps (giraffe); Penny Black (puppy);  DP: October Afternoon (Thrift Shop), dollar store embossed mauve & the green geometric is from the stash... no idea who makes it any more...

That giraffe (who've I've affectionately named Jerome) is one of my favourites.  You've seen him here before, and you'll likely see him again.  I just love his expression.   I'm amused by the birthday card where it looks like he's popped up in front of the sentiment.  How rude, Jerome!!  (yeah, I'm easily amused)

As well as the cards above, I've done a bunch of stamping and 'copicking' of some images - and you'll soon see these babies on some upcoming cards (365 Cards has a week of sketches that I'm dying to dive into!)    

  Images:  Sweet Pea (ching-choi kuik's Fantasy Art), Penny Black, Sugar Nellie (Gorjuss & Anime)

Thanks for popping by my little place in blogland!   Hope you're having a GREAT day!!
