As I have been telling you, I have been on the look out for new challenges and I found this one when I was looking last Wednesday at The Daily Dare. The name of the blog caught my eye and I just had to look. It is called Cooking it Up with Katie and she uses various recipes for her challenges...this week we were to incorporate buttons, a furry friend and patchwork. The sponsor this week is Meljen's Designs and you can win 4 of her designs. I went to her website and found a freebie called "Giraffe's Necktie" which I just love. She is also sponsoring a challenge and her only request is to use stripes somewhere on the project. I decided to use this cutie and make a card to fit both challenges at the same time. I cut a top fold A2 card out of Stampin' Up black card stock and used dp from Basic Grey's pack, Granola. The image is printed out on a piece of ivory from Rubber Cottage. I colored the giraffe using my SU markers and colors from Memento. My husband walked in when I had finished this card and he loved it(but he may be biased)...I think that it would make a great masculine card or I could see this image colored up for a baby or small child, yeah thinking out loud!
So my friends, what do you think? Want to check out these two sites? Hope so, I'll be looking for you! Hope that your week-end is going well...beautiful here in the mountains of Virginia and we are loving the low humidity and temps. See you soon!
